It’s always good to hear of a company doing what they can to insure (get it?) their workers’ safety and well-being.
Such was the case with Lalamove, Thailand’s newest on-demand delivery platform, which recently partnered up with Frank Insurance Broken, to provide their 40,000+ drivers with accident cover, life, car, bike, and health insurance in Thailand, to ensure their safety while upholding the company promise of ‘fast delivery within 1 hour’.
All of Lalamove’s drivers in Thailand will be receiving Compulsory Health Insurance, Personal Accident Insurance, and Vehicle Insurance.
According to Lalamove’s Marketing Manager, PasitThiannapapornchok, the move is the company taking steps to embrace its growing corporate responsibility and best practice business development, something that is becoming an even greater part of the company as it grows and develops.
Thiannapapornchok says that caring for their drivers via adequate life, vehicle medical, and health insurance in Thailand is about a clear sense of community within the company and its workers, as well as looking after the wellbeing of their valuable Lalamove personnel in Thailand. The business, they say, has grown rapidly since its establishment in 2013, so its a sensible move for them to take care of their drivers as they’re the company’s most valuable assets. Beyond this, Thiannapapornchok says that the company believes that good business is about responsible business accountability.
Frank Insurance Brokers is a leading online insurance platform in the country, specializing in personal insurance coverage. This partnership is the first time the provider has moved into the business-to-business (B2B) sector in the country.
Co-Founder and Managing Director HarpremDoowa, Frank Insurance Broker, says that business is about people, and by offering adequate insurance to their workers, Lalamove is giving them incentive to be loyal, as well as adopting a corporate culture that is people-focused, and allows people to feel comfortable in their daily work, which will then reflect in how they treat the end-users.Doowa says that Frank Insurance Brokers are excited for the opportunity to support Lalamove in their quest to provide quality care for their drivers in Thailand.
The company’s belief that good business is about responsible business accountability is something worth admiring; something that the business world, at large, should really embrace. There’s been a lot of news about companies being in hot water for not treating customers and employees properly, and it shows how corporate culture really needs to change. A single company getting all of their workers insurance might not be a big change, but it’s a good thing to see, all the same.
