Many employees have in the last two years, despite the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, punched above their weight in accomplishing organisational goals.

While some get appreciated for their hard work, others have remained in obscurity.

During this period, many hardworking employees have also lost their jobs or are experiencing various challenges as the country and continent grapples with the economic impact and recovery from COVID-19.

But those who have kept pushing the limits during these tough times have made their organisations win and earned praises. Bolt is full of such heroes who continued believing in the ride-hailing opportunities amid lockdowns and restrictions.

Bolt celebrates

Further Bolt can evidently say that many people across the country opted to sign up to drive with Bolt to make a living. And what a great decision that has been. Bolt celebrates these gallant men and women.

As the leading ride-hailing platform in Ghana, Bolt is also keen on giving drivers great value and a rewarding opportunity to impactfully serve riders.

In light of this, it has taken up the mantle to embark on inspiring ‘Driver Reward programmes’ offering thrilling discounts and weekly promos among others to benefit our drivers.

For Bolt, drivers are a key stakeholder and remain at the centre of the business.

Golden triangle

The Country Manager of Bolt Ghana, David Kotei Nikoi, said management of Bolt rewarded more than 100 drivers within the golden triangle across Ghana as part of the International Workers’ Day.

The beneficiaries took home appliances such as fridges, gas cookers, microwaves, cookers, television, home theatres, kettles, and many others, for their impactful, gallant, and undisputed service rendered to riders and to Bolt as a brand.

“We do not take such heroes for granted because here at Bolt, who we are, are because of them.

“We won't do justice to this subject and such heroes to mark the handovers if we do not commend Philip Mensah, a Bolt driver who returned a whopping sum of GH¢30,000 found in his car back to the rider despite the country’s economic situation,” he said.

Priority at Bolt

The Country Manager said the drivers would forever remain a priority at Bolt, and in line with this, the company will constantly look for ways to add more value to them.

He stated that drivers with Bolt will continue to earn good money with their vehicles every day.

“There is always Bolt around the corner so the next time you want to move around the city, request Bolt and contribute to adding value to their entrepreneurial journey.

“As the world concluded Workers’ Day, we celebrate all our stakeholders, especially drivers for the great work they continue to do in helping Bolt riders move around, smartly,” he added.
