Talabat launches its Annual “Make a Wish” Initiative to recognize Riders

Talabat, the leading local food aggregator and quick commerce platform, announces the launch of its annual “Grant a Wish” riders’ initiative.

As a token of gratitude to their commitment, the company made five riders’ wishes a reality during a surprise ceremony to recognize the winning heroes.

“The well-being of riders lay at the heart of our operations. At talabat, we use our platform to connect riders with job opportunities, but we don’t stop there, we work to enhance their living conditions by introducing constant benefits and welfare packages,”Hadeer Shalaby, Managing director of talabat Egypt. Fulfilling the riders’ wishes is another way talabat gives back and expresses its gratitude to on-ground heros, she added.

In the initiative’s first round, talabat granted five lucky riders with items that have long been on their wishlist, during a surprise ceremony in its newly inaugurated headquarters in Egypt. The tech platform paid for the tuition fees of a rider. Four riders were awarded electric appliances like televisions and washing machines.

It is worth mentioning that the platform is one of the main employment-generating companies in Egypt. The company indirectly creates around 500 000 jobs, in addition to their 3000 employees.

Through an outsourcing model they provide full-fledged logistics support and benefits to over 12,000 riders. They were also last year’s first food aggregator in Egypt, offering insurance to the fleet.

Additional riders’ benefits offered by talabat include electronic payment settlement and purchasing affordable motorcycles through its strategic partnership with Bajaj Auto, which also offers special rates on maintenance and convenient installment plans with no down payment.

The Make a Wish initiative will take place on an annual basis, with the purpose of giving back to riders that embody talabat’s core values, which are: make it happen, experience first and together we grow. It is also in line with a growing rider wellbeing package provided by the platform that will continue to offer new benefits to the fleet.
