Who is Marley Spoon?

Marley Spoon is a global direct-to-consumer brand solving everyday recurring problems in delightful and sustainable ways. Their vision is to 'build a better everyday, just for you, just right' which is not only applied to their customers but their team too, where the business places great importance on building a unique environment where every team member can thrive.

Situation

Marley Spoon experienced exponential growth in Australia when it switched to a subscription model, moving them from a luxury item to a household favourite. As a result, the business needed to scale its workforce to meet the growing demands, particularly concerning safety and mental health issues - they now have hubs worldwide and employ more than 500 people within the APAC region.

Case complexity

The rapid expansion created a range of complexities for Marley Spoon’s full-time, casual, admin and distribution teams.

  • Safety needs of remote workers were not being serviced, opening the organisation to risk.
  • The goal of improving support to family members was falling short.

  • Primarily casual workforce in the distribution centre work irregular, antisocial hours.
  • Young, culturally diverse teams.
