To celebrate the nation’s 54th birthday and the long weekend, GoJek Singapore has launched a series of initiatives to spread the holiday cheer to its driver-partners and customers.

Get Active with Gojek!
GoJek has partnered with Sport Singapore to promote health and fitness while fostering team spirit among driver-partners through ‘Get Active with Gojek’, an inaugural sport and wellness event, which was held yesterday (7 Aug) at the Singapore Sports Hub.
About 200 Gojek drivers, employees, and partners participated in the event. Additionally, driver-partners got to engage with Gojek’s various partners, including wellness partners such as Doctor Anywhere and Gigacover, to learn how to leverage their telehealth platform and insurance products, respectively.
“Anyone who thinks of private-hire drivers as largely sedentary could not be more mistaken. In the last one month, we saw more than a thousand drivers sign up for our ‘Get Active with Gojek!’ event as well as the various competitions,” said Lien Choong Luen, General Manager of Gojek Singapore.
The release also noted that Gojek and Sport Singapore are exploring a longer term partnership to roll out new initiatives that will promote health and fitness not just among Gojek drivers, but also for its employees and customers.
“Health and wellness are key to a sustainable work environment and we are glad to have Gojek join us to encourage more Singaporeans to lead active and balanced lifestyles. We hope Gojek participants enjoyed their sporting experiences in this year’s GetActive! Singapore,” said Lai Chin Kwang, Chief of ActiveSG, Sport Singapore.

Prediabetes risk test
Gojek will also be offering 2,000 driver-partners access to a full-subsidised prediabetes risk test, under its driver benefits programme, GoalBetter.
Funded by Gojek, the tests are part of a trial which will commence from today (8 Aug) onwards. This initiative is a joint effort between Gojek and Doctor Anywhere to help driver-partners take better charge of their health, and to support the Singapore government’s ongoing war on diabetes.
However, according to the release, driver-partners must be qualified for GoalBetter in order to be eligible for the trial.
“We want to do more to promote mental health and physical fitness among our driver-partners, who are an important part of the Gojek community. We hope that through our sport and wellness initiatives, we can encourage them to exercise more, lead more active lives, and also inspire their loved ones to stay healthy,” said Gojek’s Mr Lien.
“These wellness initiatives are testament to Gojek and Doctor Anywhere’s joint commitment to boost driver-partners’ health and wellness, and improve their quality of life,” added Lim Wai Mun, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Doctor Anywhere.
Contest: ‘Have You Ever: Singapore Edition’
For those who’re not driver-partners of Gojek, bet you’re wondering what’s in store for you; well, look no further because Gojek is conducting a contest to give riders the chance to each win S$54 of ride vouchers – in the spirit of Singapore’s 54th birthday.
The contest will take place over the long weekend, starting from today (8 Aug) until next Monday (12 Aug).
To participate in this contest, head over to Gojek’s Facebook and Instagram. A total of 54 winners will be selected. The winners will be announced next Tuesday (13 Aug).
GoalBetter milestones
What’s more, to commemorate Gojek’s presence in Singapore, the company proudly shared the key milestones of its 4-month old driver benefits programme, GoalBetter – the dynamic, ever-growing driver benefits programme by Gojek which was launched in April 2019.
Key milestones of the programme include:

  • Driver-partners having saved over S$1 million in fuel spend, a result of Gojek’s partnership with  Esso and DBS – Singapore’s largest petrol and bank networks, respectively – to provide its drivers with competitive fuel rebates
  • Nearly 150 driver-partners using telehealth services on Doctor Anywhere, on the back of Gojek’s partnership with Doctor Anywhere, a healthcare app that offers a holistic range of health and wellness services on a single, integrated platform.
  • 30 driver-partners having been accepted to GoBlazers, a driver community and innovation programme under which drivers will sign a non-disclosure agreement and be the first to experience new products and features by Gojek.
  • Nearly a third of all active Gojek driver-partners being insured by Gigacover, a Singapore-based insurance technology company focused on the protection needs of freelancers, with which Gojek has partnered to provide Prolonged Medical Leave insurance to its drivers.

王瑞杰称来届选举 将决定国家未来五至十年走向

副总理兼财政部长王瑞杰,在接受《海峡时报》网络节目专访时称,来届选举不仅是决定未来三至六个月,甚至是未来五到十年的走向。 “若冠病19疫情是对一代人考验,未来五至10年的考验,是我们这一代如何克服之,并变得更强大。” 他称在政党政治和选举之外,也呼吁国人要聚焦如何团结一致,共克时艰。 不过,王瑞杰也赞扬工人党秘书长毕丹星,强调该党立场仍是危机前政治摆一旁,同仇敌忾克服危机;但也指要检讨政策决定,仍有其他时机,惟当前新加坡必须面对眼前各种挑战。 早前,毕丹星在6月5日的“坚毅向前”预算案辩论时,曾呼吁应该全面检讨政府在应对此次冠病19的对策。
