The branch of Uber taxicabs in Hong Kong is advocating for the International Women’s day.
The tag for this year’s women’s day celebration is Be Bold for change.
The company is looking to bolster its staff of female drivers to around 2,000 by the end of the year. The firm also stated that it currently has more than a thousand female drivers on its payroll since it began business in Hong Kong in 2014. “Today, we celebrate all feminine drivers working with our prestigious company in Hong Kong. Our company gives female drivers supple working hours to earn a living so they can concentrate on other aspects of their lives,” the general manager of the firm stated.
The vision driving the branch in Hong Kong is part of a universal plan of Uber to have more than a million female drivers partner with the company by the year 2020.
The supple working hours put forward by Uber has given women viable opportunities for employment.
An example is Casey Lee who is a mother of two kids began working for Uber in October. The supple working hours has let her take up other things like teaching and enabled her to focus on her family too.
Later at night, her spouse makes use of the car to also work for Uber. She makes roughly HK$5,000 monthly.
Other women have taken up jobs at the firm too and have found the supple working time to suit them just right.
