Through the platform, Grab is looking incorporate new driver training and assessment into the online driver acquisition process, and support its ‘Better 365’ driver-partner welfare campaign. 
Additionally, Grab drivers - termed by the firm as "driver-partners" - will have access to an on-demand content hub where training modules and learning reinforcement activities will be delivered to them, based on their specific needs. 
Russell Cohen, Head of Regional Operations for Grab, said that the microlearning platform will help the growing firm "deliver onboarding training to new driver-partners as well as refresher training to current driver-partners in a more scalable and consistent way."
