Petaling Jaya, 26 November 2021 – Grab Malaysia introduces its inaugural Grab Lejen initiative to celebrate partners who have been a force for good in the community. Throughout this challenging year, Grab’s community of partners have been nothing short of amazing in their perseverance and dedication to continue serving Malaysians as frontliners. Therefore, this initiative aims to recognise their stories of dedication and further enrich their lives with enhanced benefits.
Commenting on the initiative, Director, Country Operations at Grab Malaysia, Rashid Shukor, says “Our partners have shown us that despite the trying year we have all gone through, there is nothing we cannot overcome as a nation if we show each other a little kindness. With this annual initiative we hope to continue honoring them for their incredible acts of service and kindness while serving fellow Malaysians. In addition, we are also looking to further expand the support Grab is providing them for their various needs.”
Showcasing legendary stories with Grab Lejen
Grab Lejen is an annual, month-long crowd-driven appreciation campaign to honor and appreciate the legendary members of Grab’s community of partners. Throughout the year we have seen and heard various stories of how our community has performed incredible acts of kindness and with this we want to continue highlighting those who have showcased what it means to leave no one behind.
To kick off Grab Lejen, Grab is proud to present Grab’s brand film, which showcases a compilation of the amazing stories this past year:
In addition, Grab has collaborated with renowned Malaysian cartoonist Ujang to design comics inspired by the best true stories Malaysians have shared of driver- and delivery-partners going above and beyond the call of duty. These comics will be revealed after Grab’s weekly livestream events throughout the month with the real life partners receiving exclusive rewards from Grab as a token of our appreciation.
Here are two of the comics and stories which received the Grab Lejen recognition recently in the first live stream event for partners:
The launch of Grab Lejen is part of Grab’s wider commitment to celebrate its community under the banner of Festival Rakan Grab. For more information on these inspiring stories and the annual Grab Lejen initiative, please visit: GRAB LEJEN
Exclusive rewards with Mantap GrabBenefits
In addition to honoring Grab’s partners who have performed exemplary acts of service, Grab is also rewarding all partners by offering exclusive and relevant rewards on GrabBenefits in conjunction with the month-long celebration. These benefits are on top of what is currently already available for partners on GrabBenefits and were curated based on partners’ feedback on what would meet their needs best such as petrol rebates, vehicle maintenance and healthcare coverage.
Some of the special deals include fuel bonuses, discounted rates on car batteries and smartphones as well as on cleaning and hygiene products, and more. Apart from that, Grab is also engaging with partners via livestream events to further educate partners on how best to leverage GrabBenefits.

GrabBenefits is a programme aimed to enrich our partners’ lives by offering them benefits, discounts, and loyalty programmes that allow them to maximise their earnings and save on everyday expenses as well as provide them with protection while they earn. The program consists of 3 main categories:
Assisting partners in the protection of their welfare. This marks the third year anniversary of GrabInsure which provides Grab partners with work-related insurance coverage that protects both drivers and passengers on every job. This includes Grab’s Group Personal Accident that covers all on-the-job incidents, and the enhanced 24/7 GrabBenefits insurance that covers incidents outside of jobs for delivery-partners. Grab also introduced Grab Daily E-hailing Insurance as a convenient and affordable alternative to annual e-hailing insurance. In addition, GrabBenefits allows partners to conveniently contribute to SOCSO and EPF.
Grab also recently collaborated with the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) to encourage Grab’s community of partners to contribute via EPF’s i-saraan programme. In addition, qualified Grab partners will also receive incentives offered by Grab of additional contribution of up to 10%.
Helping partners save cost on essential items needed to lower their operational costs. This includes rebates for fuel and vehicle maintenance via Grab’s panel of partners nationwide, and even setting-up multiple Grab Pit Stops for partners to rest. In addition, Grab also provides easy access to contribute to Zakat.
Providing partners with access to upskilling courses on GrabAcademy via training and development programmes aimed at empowering driver- and delivery-partners with various skills. For example, Digital Literacy, in partnership with Microsoft, and Financial Literacy programmes to equip Grab partners with digital and financial skills and knowledge.
“As a homegrown tech enabler, we want to ensure that other than providing Malaysians with easy access to income, we also put in place efforts and initiatives that safeguard their welfare – from on-the-road savings and protection via insurance to quality living and financial resilience. With the launch of Grab Lejen and enhancing our GrabBenefits platform, we hope to give back to our community both by meeting their needs and honouring them,” concluded Rashid.
