Coca-Cola HBCCoca-Cola HBC is a packaged goods business and bottling partner of the Coca-Cola company. It observed several people challenges, including limited opportunities for people development, under-utilisation of employees’ hidden skills and talents, and an unequal distribution of work across the countries it operates in with many employees stretched beyond capacity. It developed the Opportunity Marketplace platform to match workers’ talents with internal work opportunities and promote the concept of “gig work” across the organisation. Employees create their own profile with details of their skills, time availability, the skills they want to develop and the kind of projects they work on, and can apply to take on projects that have been posted on the platform. The work is voluntary and on top of their usual responsibilities, with the aim of providing opportunities for career and skills development and overcoming resource barriers. The project was completed quickly, with the idea first pitched in March 2020 and going live on 4 May 2020. More than 1,600 profiles have been created and over 280 projects posted. It has unlocked 13,200 person hours and has an employee satisfaction score of 4.5 out of 5.
