Leading ride-hailing platform Bolt has announced a collaboration with Flance, an employee benefits company, to provide Bolt drivers in Nigeria with access to discounted healthcare plans. Through this collaboration, Bolt driver partners can take advantage of Flance’s innovative technology and access high-quality, affordable healthcare services.
This information was disclosed by Ireoluwa Obatoki, Regional Manager for West and North Africa at Bolt, in an interview with reporters on Monday.
The collaboration includes preventive care services such as regular checkups and screenings; telemedicine consultations for medical advice without having to leave their homes; and a network of trusted healthcare providers at reduced rates. All these measures are designed so that independent workers can stay healthy without breaking the bank or sacrificing quality care. The drivers will also receive exclusive discounts on other Flance health insurance plans, as well as access to a range of health, wellness, and financial benefits, including loans.
In his statement, Mr. Ireoluwa Obatoki promised that Bolt will continue to provide health support to their drivers nation wide. “At Bolt, we are dedicated to providing our driver partners with the support and resources they need to succeed and live better,” said Ireoluwa Obatoki, Regional Manager for West and North Africa at Bolt. “This collaboration with Flance is a major step forward in that commitment, and we are proud to offer driver partners access to affordable, high-quality healthcare services.”
According to Victor Ekwealor, CEO of Flance, “Our mission is focused on helping this emerging demographic access quality, affordable, and inclusive benefits.”
“The gig economy in Africa is growing at an average rate of 20% annually, and it is estimated that by 2030, there will be 80 million gig workers in Africa.” “This collaboration is in line with our mission at Flance to help this emerging demographic access quality, affordable, and inclusive benefits,” said Victor Ekwealor, CEO of Flance.
“By collaborating with Bolt, we are able to bring this security to even more drivers in need and help ensure that they can access the healthcare they need to stay healthy and on the job.”
The collaboration will initially be available in Nigeria, with plans to expand to other African cities in the near future.
