On Tuesday, Deliveroo hosted its first rider awards ceremony to acknowledge the work of its app-based deliverymen (riders) in Hong Kong. Fifty out of 4000 riders were selected by partner restaurants and the riders community for their excellent delivery service.

The winners were awarded with a certificate, a medal, a polo shirt, a sports waist bag sponsored by Shell and vouchers from Pizza Express and the Golden Prince Thai Restaurant.

The criteria for nominations include maintaining a positive attitude in all forms of interactions and upholding road safety guidelines.

“Deliveroo puts enormous value on our team of self-employed riders, who ensure that Deliveroo can bring fantastic meals from a huge variety of restaurants to people across Hong Kong with speed and efficiency. They are critical to our success and in the ecosystem,” said Brian Lo, general manager of Deliveroo Hong Kong and Taiwan.

On winning the Deliveroo Rider Awards the rider, surnamed Lam, commented: “It’s such an honour to be nominated and win at the Deliveroo Rider Awards. Being a rider is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy flexible, well-paid work and bring delicious meals to the Hong Kong community. The awards help us to connect within our community. We have the opportunity to appreciate and learn from other riders.”

In June, the food delivery service company launched its ‘Get Paid’ feature, where the gig economy workers can receive their paychecks as early as the same day with a single click.

Deliveroo also offers a free insurance package and a variety of engagement opportunities including first-aid training, riders appreciation dinners, movie nights and more for its riders.

Deliveroo is seeking to employ an additional 1000 riders by the end of the year.
