Go-Jek cares for the welfare of its drivers in Singapore as it partners with local start-up Doctor Anywhere.
Starting next month, Go-Jek drivers will be able to access Doctor Anywhere’s platform, which provides online video consultations with Singapore-registered medical professionals.
It also allows patients to book face-to-face appointments, get referrals to specialists, and arrange for home delivery of medicine and doctors’ notes. Go-Jek drivers will also be eligible for discounts of up to 40% on third-party “wellness” services offered via Doctor Anywhere’s marketplace.
Go-Jek will cover subscription fees, while drivers will pay a special partner rate for each consultation and service they use. The company’s most active drivers will get “additional medical benefits fully subsidized by Go-Jek,” it said.
Last week, Go-Jek unveiled what it described as the city-state’s “most extensive” earnings protection scheme for its Singaporean drivers in partnership with local insurance start-up Gigacover.
GOJEK’s co-founder Kevin Aluwi noted the positive response of Singapore, the home-ground of its archrival Grab, to Go-jek’s arrival. Aluwi shared: “I think out of all the country launches, Singapore has been by far the most surprising in terms of reception, both in terms of demand from riders and supply of drivers. The desire to have a more competitive and fair market was overwhelming.”
