Introducing split payments: Delightful employee experiences through food allowances that fit your budget

According to our survey results, food allowances are the #1 most desired employee benefit by employees across Southeast Asia. However we also know from speaking to clients that introducing food perks is a logistical nightmare as well as a heavy cost burden. But it doesn’t have to be.

We have launched a new feature that helps organisations manage the cost and operational challenges commonly associated with offering food as an employee experience benefit.

Bringing operational efficiency to food perks

With GrabForBusiness, you can easily deploy food perks to employees across the region by allowing them to order from GrabFood and bill directly to the company. To ensure full control over budgets, you can set customisable GrabFood policies – based on order value, frequency or even location – on the GrabForBusiness Portal and generate reports in real-time.

Through this feature alone, you can skip the headache of managing operational processes and instead provide freedom of choice to your employees to order from the Grab app that they know and love.

More flexibility for an enhanced employee experience

A common challenge for our clients is managing the balance between providing the best employee experience for their people and stewarding budgets for employee perks. Through our new feature, employees can select from the variety of choices available through GrabFood, utilise their food allowance, and pay any remaining balance using their usual personal payment method.

GrabFood employee perks for budgets of any size

The new feature provides greater flexibility and unlocks an opportunity for teams looking to start employee meal programmes with smaller budgets. Through this added flexibility, you can set GrabFood allowances at any amount whilst allowing employees to fully enjoy the full available offering.

So whether you’re looking for options to subsidise meals for employees working overtime or simply want to enhance your overall employee benefits programme, GrabForBusiness is ready to support you.

Get started with GrabFood for your business

If you’re already a GrabForBusiness client, this feature is automatically enabled as long as you have food policies set for your employees. Go to the GrabForBusiness portal to do this now, or contact us, for help.

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
