Background

honestbee

Honestbee is one of Asia’s best-known online concierge and delivery services, with its distinctive logo and great service. Honestbee harnesses technology, data-fuelled operations, and a strong network of partners to constantly deliver innovative services that delight consumers.

Honestbee founder Joel Sng saw it fit to combine the mission of providing job opportunities with online grocery delivery. To end consumers, Honestbee is just a simple same-day grocery delivery site. But to Joel and his team, Honestbee is more than that. They are providing income opportunities to their concierge shoppers and deliverers.

Honestbee saw marked improvements in their hiring, such as a decrease in time spent on hiring. Let’s find out how they did it.

Problem

Large Number of Applicants due to Rapid Expansion

In its early days, the idea of honestbee sounded too good to be true, even to its concierge shoppers. If you had the extra time and the means to get around, you could get paid just to shop for other people. But as the team spread the word about their business model, honestbee grew explosively, quickly becoming the go-to platform for on-demand grocery delivery.

With so many positions to fill and manage, honestbee needed an all-in-one hiring dashboard to streamline their onboarding and interview process.
