How start-up founder of “Take Home” Rajesh solved his problem of Hiring is really dream come true!

Hrishi 26/10/2015

Rajesh is founder of “Take home” a start-up which delivers home-made food to offices and homes. People can order their food via online menu available on daily basis till 10 PM previous night. Based on ordered quantity order is given to respective home chefs for cooking. Cooked food is picked up by 10 AM next morning and delivery boys take them out for deliveries at ordered places.

The biggest pain point for Rajesh is deliveries during weekends when orders spike up but deliveries are distributed across areas. If one delivery is in one building of a big complex next is 1 KM away in another complex. Also on weekends it is a bit difficult to use his entire workforce as they prefer having a day off on weekend instead of weekday. Hiring temporary workforce seems not much useful as people are not willing to work part time just for weekends. They expect part time work for whole week. Due to these issues Rajesh is facing problem in expanding his business.

So what can be solution for Rajesh’s problem? How can he increase his business by catering wider area and menus during weekends? GenieOnHire greatly helped Rajesh here. Rajesh wanted trusted delivery boys only for weekends when demand is high, and there were many students on GenieOnHire who wanted to work only on weekends to earn extra income to support their education.

Rajesh floated his wish on GenieOnHire for working as Delivery man on weekends; he received many quotes and queries from student Genies. Some with their own vehicles and some without. Based on past rating and price quotes provided Rajesh selected 10 Genies and called them for interview.  He selected 5 Genies for Delivery work on Weekend.

It really worked for Rajesh as he expanded his delivery area from current Hinjewadi and Magarpatta to almost whole of Pune city.

How Radha took care of her parents in India is truly inspiring!

Hrishi 27/10/2015

Radha completed her education from COEP Pune she was a bright student in her class and got immediate offer from Infosys through campus. Radha hailed from a middle class family staying in a small Sahakar nagar apartment. Her father retired from a bank and mother was a housewife. Radha was the only daughter and she loved them a lot.

            Soon due to her talent and work, Radha got chance to go to US from her company. She
stayed in Boston and liked the work culture in US. Due to her hard working she got good opportunities in US. Within few years her parents started asking her to get married. Being a self-made girl Radha wanted choose her own partner. Radha met handsome and friendly Matt in the same company where she worked. Slowly they came closer and got in to relationship. Soon they decided to get married. Radha went to India to meet her parents and inform them of decision to get married with Matt. Being traditional her parents were opposed to the decision but after Matt came to India and met them, this opposition slowly turned in to approval.

            Radha got married and decided to settle in US permanently. Soon the normal routine followed where Radha got pregnant, her parents came to US to help her and stayed back for few months. After doing this 6 monthly routine for 3-4 times they got tired and told Radha that they cannot come to US henceforward and will like to stay in India till the end.

            So next year Radha came to India with her entire family to meet her parents. During this visit she noticed her parents are tiered. It is getting difficult for them to navigate through traffic and do day today tasks like banking, Grocery etc. Radha tried to introduce them to online shopping and etc, but being old generation they were not very adaptive to the same. Radha wished she had someone who could help her parents and take care of them, she tried to get maids and all but they were not educated enough to handle many tasks.

            Radha came across GenieOnHire.com from a Facebook post. She went through the website and downloaded the Android app. She got to know that it facilitates students to be hired on hourly basis to complete tasks for individuals and companies. These students called as Genies are background checked and trustworthy and reside in Pune. She signed up for the website and floated her wish of getting a Genie to meet her parents for 2-3 hours each day and complete their daily small tasks. She got many quotes from Genies residing in the area where her parents stayed.

Based on the past rating and pricing quoted by the Genies she selected 2 Genies to meet her parents every alternate day in the morning. Soon she got to know that her parents are very happy due to help they got from these Genies. Genies used to read newspaper to her father, help her mother to get groceries from local market, take appointment and get queued up at doctor, buy medicine from market, one Genie even helped her mother to make snacks for Diwali to be sent to US.

            Radha was very happy as she could control Genie activity online and ask them additional tasks if necessary. She was paying these Genies online without involving her parents in complexities and simultaneously helping the students to get learned.

Why the old rules?

Gargi Jajoo 11/06/2019
Today I visited my cousin. He was doing his homework. When I asked him what it was about, he 
innocently replied that they had been given a task to write about a good Indian leader as elections have 
been the recent news in our nation. As a child he did exactly what I or many of us did in school i.e. he 
was writing about Mahatma Gandhi. I had a smile on his face. It kept me thinking for a long time. Why 
we as children are taught only about the good things they did, why anybody doesn’t tell us the things 
they did which could crash our nation’s economy? The politics they played to keep the things under 
their control and for their benefits without thinking of the long term benefits for the country or it 
people.
I am an Open category student where I had to face the higher cut off for marks in every stage of 
selection. My father has to pay the extra fee for every standard I passed. Why when my father earns 
100 rs he has to spend 40rs for my class fees and extra 20rs for my tuition where a reserved category 
student’s father only spends 25 rs and also has no need to send his child to tuition because he is as 
such going to get admission in a very good institute though he scores less! Why when a student scores 
142 gets in PVG and someone who scores 112 is a part of PICT?
 Why people in India are  more fascinated by the American education system and are willing to go 
there? Is the standard of living the only reason? No. They don’t have reservation to judge their talent. 
Their talent is judged on their talent itself! 
Did you know Dr. Ambedkar when he started this reservation system only kept the restriction of 15 
years for these benefits and Nehru kept on increasing years so as to just keep the votes in his pocket. Still 
after years the same system is being followed without any changes making the so called “lower sub 
caste and poor people” richer and the richer people poorer! How many more years are we going to 
listen that the Doctors, Charted Accountants and their children are really poor and they need a waiver in 
their fees?!Or maybe these people don’t believe that they can get the admission on the shear basis of 
their talent!! The worst part is these people are rebelling to be a part of this lower sub caste why just 
because the caste really doesn’t matter these days but the advantage it gives matter more! 
How many more years should this be tolerated? Ya its still jaisa chal raha hai chalne do kya kar sakte hai 
they have the advantage! Here when we bargain a 100rs item to bring it down to 90 with all efforts then 
why can’t we in this case? 
I request everyone of you including the people who are getting benefit from the reservation! Think 
about others too! Make yourself worthy and give a good fight instead of asking for a reservation from 
the government. Your parents earn enough and are well educated at a good post so stop asking waiver 
from the colleges! The colleges need to charge you less that’s why they charge us more! Otherwise stop 
saying ki young generation ne kuch karna chahiye desh badalne k liye –pehle khud karke dikhao!
So just stop being selfish and even think apart from yourself. I request everyone to write a letter to the 
government official email urging this. Let’s make a move, let’s make a change!
