3 ways foodpanda is taking care of its riders

MANILA, PHILIPPINES

The company has started several partnerships to provide jobs and assist riders with motorcycle loans.

In line with this, foodpanda has been working with its partners to support its riders. Below is their story.

It’s not easy to keep a job.

In 2020, more than 420,000 Filipinos lost their jobs as the pandemic forced businesses all over the country to close.

However, it will not be easy to address this problem. According to the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), joblessness will remain high – at around 7% to 9% – even by 2022.

With this in mind, it has become even more important for large companies and businesses to do everything they can to help their employees keep their jobs.

Over the past year, mobile food delivery marketplace foodpanda Philippines has been working with different partners to help existing riders become more secure in their jobs. The company has also initiated programs to provide jobs for future riders.

Here are 3 partnerships foodpanda launched:

In October 2020, foodpanda teamed up with EMC Prado Auto, Inc. to provide free bikes and job opportunities to work as a foodpanda rider.

“As a cyclist myself, I thought of the most efficient solution to help as much as I could and this is where our bike giving cause started. And with the partnership with foodpanda, we were able to provide brand new bikes and a job for each deserving beneficiary,” said Enrique Prado, President of EMC Prado Auto, Inc.

One of the most important work tools for foodpanda riders is their own motorcycle. In partnership with CIBI Information, Inc. – the first and only local credit bureau in the Philippines – the company connects its riders to financial institutions by providing customized credit reports that can help in the fast delivery of loan approval.

These credit reports can be submitted to partner banks and financial institutions in exchange for a motorcycle loan.

“It is high time for them to get a motorcycle upgrade and this partnership will help them secure the best loan option in the market,” said Jao Manahan, Operations Manager for Community and Communications at foodpanda.
