“Flexible working? It’s food and drink to us.”

The next time you put something into your shopping basket, the chances are it was picked and delivered by Culina.

Providing UK supermarkets with one of the biggest and most reliable supply chains, big name brands include Innocent, Müller, Red Bull, Tate & Lyle and Ferrero Rocher, to name but a few.

“Operating 24/7, 365 days of the year across nine locations, speed, accuracy and efficiency are essential for staff working in busy and complicated distribution centres.”

Delivering the brands

Assist first supported Culina’s UK network in June 2012 and delivered over 600,000 hours of flexible workers in the first year.

On average this breaks down to more than 1500 shifts per week, with service delivery scaling up and down to meet exact seasonal requirements.

Evolve: taking planning to a whole new level

We add value at every level but one of the main reasons Culina chose Assist was Evolve, our web based IT platform.

With first-year trials now complete, we are now rolling the system out to give managers across the entire Culina Group a new level of control over their business processes.

From recruitment and placement, through to compliance, payment and billing, Evolve is taking Culina’s workforce management to a whole new level.

“This has got to be one the most challenging places for staff to pick and distribute product. For this reason alone, the way Assist provides staff is impressive. People are always properly screened and ready to work.”
