Let's start with GO-JEK - Onsite Seminar 2018
Finally, the onsite seminar begun on the day before, when we started our journey from Zurich Airport. After a 14 hours flight and a stop in Singapore, the group arrived save and sound in Jakarta. Since we landed early in the morning the day was packed with sensations, a company visit, and lots of impressions. Let’s start with the company visit. The delegation was invited to visit the Indonesian company GO-JEK which focuses its core business on transport, logistics, and payment services. The startup was founded in 2010 and can register an impressive development due to the company’s rapid expansion of drivers operating motorcycles, cars, and trucks in Indonesia. As a matter of fact, the way to GO-JEK’s headquarter was already a challenge due to the intense traffic jam in Jakarta and the Indonesian culture’s differing perception of punctuality.
Nevertheless, we discovered plenty of GO-JEK’s drivers on our way to the company either delivering food or providing passenger transport. After the arrival we were provided with an introductory movie in order to get to know the company better, followed by a very interesting Q&A session about the current and future opportunities of GO-JEK. The company revealed that future trends will focus on “Go-Pay” which is a means of payment. The company aims to make the payment method more popular and introduce it in whole Indonesia. After the discussion an employee gave us a tour through the office complex which was characterized by a modern interior and plenty of creative space where employees are able to develop their potentials. As for instance, there is a play-zone located in the first floor, enabling employees to relax, clear their heads, and holding meetings. Despite these rooms there are plenty of other spaces enhancing creativity to the maximum. The event was closed by a get-together where refreshments and snacks were provided. Afterwards, the coach drove us back to the hotel where we have been able to spend some leisure time followed by an individual diner and relaxation after a long day
