How Honey Baked Ham Has Used Gigpro to Benefit Their Staffing Model
Honey Baked Ham is home to the World’s Best Ham. They deliver honey-baked happiness, not just during the holidays but year-round. They serve amazing hams, turkey, sandwiches, and sides. Gigpro became Honey Baked Ham’s preferred staffing alternative in November of 2022 with Thanksgiving right around the corner.
Gigpro’s model matches perfectly with Honey Baked Ham’s need over the holidays for short-term job assignments without a long-term commitment, so the match between the efficiency of the gig economy in app form, works very well to fulfill their associate needs. Their highest volume is over the holidays where Gigpro helps with positions like Line Cooks, Prep Cooks, and Front of the House support.
The bulk of their hiring needs is for short stints around the holidays, as they need enough staff to keep up with the high demand and lines out the door. They cannot maintain their reputation for service and production short-staffed, so they must work with a partner they can count on to supply consistent quality staff during their highest volume periods of business.
To date Honey Baked Ham partners with Gigpro across 9 stores in Charleston, Cleveland, Columbus, Richmond, Philadelphia, Palm Beach, Louisville, Atlanta, Columbus, Denver, and Nashville. Gigpro has filled over 44,220 Labor hours across Honey Baked Ham stores and hopes to continue to expand our relationship as Gigpro launches new markets throughout 2023 and 2024.
Over the Easter holiday weekend, Gigpro fulfilled over 1,800 shift hours across 40 stores in Charleston, Cleveland, Columbus, Richmond, and Nashville.
