    As a business that thrives through the contributions and success of each player in its ecosystem, foodpanda Philippines ensures to create a balanced arena that benefits everyone. This includes nurturing a gender-balanced workforce and delivery ecosystem.

    In the company, women account for over 50 percent of the total employee population, many of which are at the helm of their teams. Female employees thrive as leaders as they make up around 40 percent of the company’s senior managers and 45 percent of its team leaders. Almost 64 percent of the commercia team, which handles sales operations, account management, and partner vendor acquisition, is made up of women.

    “foodpanda Philippines will continue to thrive because we are committed to creating and maintaining a balanced system wherein everyone benefits. With an exemplary and hardworking team in the company, many of whom are women who were born leaders, will surely help in serving more customers and communities effectively,” said foodpanda Philippines Managing Director, Daniel Marogy.

    As a provider of on-demand service, the company also credits its success to a community of freelance riders that increasingly welcomes women. While riders are still mostly male, there are currently around 250 female riders nationwide who are delivering food and more to different communities.

    Following the challenging year of community quarantine and mobility restrictions, the delivery app was still able to serve customers, and support its partner businesses. In the past year, it has expanded its operations to more than 100 cities in the country. The company has also tripled the number of customers served, and more than quadrupled its vendor base.
