Food delivery service Foodpanda recently announced a partnership with Gnowbe and Temasek Polytechnic to offer delivery people in Singapore access to free and discounted courses. Gnowbe is a mobile-first educational platform targeted towards employers, and offers programs in bite-sized units. Micro-learning is a natural fit for riders, allowing them to squeeze in some education while waiting for orders to come through.
Currently on offer are free courses in customer service and discounts on other courses. Participants will receive certificates on completion. Foodpanda — a subsidiary of Berlin-based Delivery Hero operating in over 300 cities across Asia Pacific — previously offered webinars on finance and investing, after a survey indicated that riders were interested in learning about money management and financial literacy.
Foodpanda's forays into education are what our 2021 Trend Report highlights as SKILLS FOR ALL. Digital tools are increasingly democratizing education, just as people are seeking out (re)training as a way to adapt and prosper in a rapidly changing world. Can your brand develop learning initiatives for employees or consumers, helping them gain skills to become more agile and resilient?
