McDonald’s Malaysia and SOCSO signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to ensure that all McDonald’s food deliverers through the McDelivery service are contributed to and covered by SOCSO’s Self-Employed Social Security Scheme (SESSS).
“From time to time, McDonald’s is always looking for ways to improve benefits or provide incentives to our food delivery people. Although they work independently according to their time and needs, they are the front line that ensures the effectiveness of our McDelivery service, which is currently one of the business segments that generate the highest sales volume for the company. All the benefits and incentives including sponsorship through SESSS are a sign of the company’s appreciation for their hard work to ensure that Malaysians can enjoy their favorite McDonald’s dishes,” said Dato’ Azmir Jaafar, Managing Director and Local Operations Partner, McDonald’s Malaysia.
“SOCSO is now actively implementing various strategic approaches to ensure that more OBS in the country contribute to SKSPS. Based on statistics, there are 2.7 million Malaysians who are self-employed, but only 568,686 OBS are registered with SKSPS until 30 September 2022. It is my great hope that the ceremony held today can directly raise awareness about the importance of social security protection and attract more individuals and other parties such as the Ministry, Government agencies, business companies and NGO associations out there to work with us to protect the OBS group in Malaysia,” said Dato’ Sri Subahan Kamal, SOCSO Board Chairman.
