Southeast Asia Globe - - Agenda -

The In­done­sia-based ride hail­ing app Go-Jek has been recog­nised by For­tune mag­a­zine as the 17th best com­pany in the world that uses “the profit mo­tive to solve a mul­ti­tude of so­ci­etal prob­lems”.

Go-Jek was the first com­pany from South­east Asia to make For­tune’s ‘Change the World’ list, which was topped by the US fi­nan­cial ser­vices firm JP Mor­gan Chase. Tech gi­ants Ap­ple and Mi­crosoft and the Swiss food and bev­er­age be­he­moth Nestlé came in third, 25th and 14th places re­spec­tively.

Ac­cord­ing to For­tune, Go-Jek has helped re­duce traf­fic con­ges­tion and boosted sales of small com­pa­nies that have reg­is­tered on the com­pany’s plat­form. The In­done­sian startup’s com­pre­hen­sive em­ployee ben­e­fits – in­clud­ing mi­cro­fi­nance loans, in­sur­ance, safety train­ing and cer­tain health pack­ages – also re­ceived spe­cial men­tion.

“This award mo­ti­vates us to con­tinue to com­mit to make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the gov­ern­ment’s vi­sion to make In­done­sia South­east Asia’s largest digital eco­nomic power by 2020,” said Go-Jek founder and CEO Nadiem Makarim, ac­cord­ing to kom­pas.com.
