Singapore, August 8 2019 - To celebrate the National Day long weekend, Gojek Singapore has rolled out 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 organise ‘Get Active with Gojek!’, an inaugural sport and wellness event to help driver-partners lead healthier lives and foster team spirit within the Gojek community. Held on August 7 at the Singapore Sports Hub, the event saw nearly 200 drivers, Gojek employees and partners come together to improve their fitness.
The event included a big group workout (featuring moves from the 2019 GetActive! Singapore NDP Workout), as well as a session for driver-partners 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.
Gojek's driver-partners, employees and partners engaged in a fun, mass workout together.
The event also celebrated the achievements and efforts of Gojek drivers and employees who participated in GetActive! Singapore, an annual national week of sports organised by Sport Singapore. As part of GetActive! Singapore, some 60 Gojek drivers formed teams with some 20 Gojek Singapore employees to train and compete in Pesta Sukan competitions for bowling, badminton and football.
Lien Choong Luen, General Manager of Gojek Singapore, says: “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.
“We also had the opportunity to train alongside our drivers and watch them show off their sporting chops. Several drivers have even started joining our employees at weekly activities such as futsal. Bonding through sports is a great way to build a sense of community.”

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 its employees and customers.
Lai Chin Kwang, Chief of ActiveSG, Sport Singapore, said: “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.
“I strongly encourage more organisations to follow Gojek’s lead as we embark on the next phase of Vision 2030 to impact more Singaporeans through sport.”

Prediabetes risk test
Gojek will be offering 2,000 driver-partners access to a fully-subsidised prediabetes risk test, under its driver benefits programme, GoalBetter. The tests are part of a trial starting from August 8. They will be funded by Gojek, and represent a joint effort between Gojek and Doctor Anywhere to help driver-partners detect health conditions early and take charge of their health, and to support the Singapore government’s ongoing war on diabetes.
Driver-partners must have qualified for GoalBetter to be eligible for the trial. To take the test, drivers can sign up with Gojek and visit any of Doctor Anywhere’s eight clinics islandwide. Following the trial, Gojek will explore expanding the initiative to the rest of its driver-partners.
Gojek’s Mr Lien says: “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.”
Lim Wai Mun, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Doctor Anywhere, adds: “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.
“To show our continued support, we brought our staff down to the ‘Get Active with Gojek!’ event to promote healthy living amongst driver-partners’ and celebrate their achievements, and we look forward to more meaningful health engagement initiatives like this in the near future!"
