To the future: 3 ideas that will define the New Year
As we embark on a new year, and adjust to resuming a normal life, the future is still unknown. More than ever it is important to keep up our innovative thinking, and the ability to adapt to new situations quickly. At Delivery Hero the ability to change and be a thought leader is the foundation on which the company is built.
Our focus remains on creating meaningful change and a more sustainable industry. Read on to discover our take on the top three focus areas for the upcoming year that will shape the tech and delivery industry in a positive way.
Commitment to caring
Delivery Hero is committed to making a positive contribution to every aspect of its ecosystem and the world as a whole and 2023 is no different.
Delivery Hero’s partnership with ShareTheMeal has allowed for many customers to help fight hunger with a few simple clicks, whilst they order food, as the donation button is integrated into the app. In 2022 Delivery Hero had donated 10 million meals and as the commitment to the program continues in the upcoming year this number will only rise.
Furthermore in 2022 Delivery Hero joined the United Nations Global Compact initiative (“UNGC.”) The UNGC is a voluntary leadership platform for the development, implementation and disclosure of responsible business practices.
In 2023 Delivery Hero will continues to use all opportunities to care for its ecosystem the best it can.
The ability to collaborate and share expertise is one of the greatest advantages of being a global company. Being able to learn worldwide from colleagues and apply this knowledge on a local level helps Delivery Hero thrive. In 2022 Delivery Hero launched its first Engineer Exchange program with Woowa in South Korea to fully realize the potential of collective knowledge. In line with this Delivery Hero hosted its first Global Web Summit, a three day internal global summit, with over 40 speakers from across the globe.
Harnessing the full power of a global company will only grow in importance in 2023, as traveling becomes easier once again the chances to grow and learn together will only increase and help further innovation in the upcoming year.
The wellbeing of all Heroes is a core principle at Delivery Hero, starting with the value: We are Heroes because we care. For a third time, Delivery Hero has been certified a Great Place to Work. But this is not all – Delivery Hero has also appointed new members to its second Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Board. The board is set up to act as a body of experience and expertise, striving to influence and improve Delivery Hero’s D&I strategy and approach.
Its Employee Resource Groups also continue to increase in numbers and in 2023 Delivery Hero is excited to see all the internal communities join together to help promote a more inclusive and supportive work environment. This fully rounded commitment to employees wellbeing and safety is a top priority and will further contribute to helping Delivery Hero continue to push the envelope and innovate the industry in 2023.
