The increase in companies that leverage on crowdsourced model has led to a sharp rise of freelancers in Singapore. Since the entry of Silicon Valley giant, Uber, the concept “freelancing” has been heavily marketed and embraced by locals. A career choice that was frowned upon has been growing in numbers. So in this competitive space, how does Qourier differentiate ourselves among tech giants with deep pockets?
A human-centric approach.
As the term “Qourier Heroes” suggest, we view freelancers more than hi-bye employees but rather people who make a real difference to the company. Very often meetings circulate around discussions on ideas and initiatives to make our people feel more valued and have a sense of belonging. One question that pops up frequently: They are like our family. And how will you treat your family?
We will always want our family to be protected.
As such, the team have worked long and hard to prepare for the launch of Qourier’s Medical Program. This scheme provides support to all Qourier Heroes to combat rising healthcare costs. Core features include eCard, which provides $13 flat consultation rate at 600+ standard GPs, clinic locators function and exclusive partner deals. Regardless of the number of deliveries made, if one is successfully registered and verified as a Qourier Hero, he/she will be entitled to these benefits and are automatically on boarded.
Qourier Heroes can access these benefits simply by downloading “QMedical” app from App Store/Play Store.
Majority of Qourier Heroes are PMEBs, full time freelancers or full time couriers. While some of them has medical coverage under their day jobs, most of them are self employed who are burdened with heavy insurance fees and medical bills. This scheme will lighten and can cover up to 70% of the healthcare bills for day-to-day Qourier Heroes.
Other Qourier-Heroes-first initiative include Qourier Rewards Program, where we partner 100+ brands across categories like F&B, retail, health and wellness to offer exclusive discounts such as 15% off Benjamin Baker products, or 1–1 fitness classes at A2 Movements, to all their members in an attempt to promote work-life balance.
