Grab advocates for equal opportunities and access to income

GRAB Malaysia announced plans to focus on finding alternative ways of earning in order to address issues around underemployment and create equal access to income, even for those with disabilities, retirees and single parents with the support of the Government and other industry partners.

“Grab Malaysia plans to work more seamlessly with the government and other relevant parties for Malaysians to access better flexible and supplementary incomes through the National Employment Council (NEC),” said Grab managing director Sean Goh.

He noted that the company recently refreshed its GrabBenefits programme to include initiatives to upskill and improve the financial resilience of more than 120,000 drivers and delivery partners.

In addition, the company had garnered over RM130 million in sales to help businesses stay afloat through the Shop Malaysia Online initiative, an e-commerce drive introduced under the National Economic Recovery Plan, as well as other initiatives under the ePENJANA programme.

Sean said continuous efforts will be taken in creating awareness and visibility for local entrepreneurs, and to equip them with the tools to thrive in the digital economy.

He added that Grab Malaysia is committed to putting in the hard work alongside the government, community and like-minded industry partners to create even more equal opportunities in the service industry. – Feb 11, 2021
