The rift between Uber, the public, and the law is only going to get bigger as the company continues to alienate drivers so it can evade the law. Rydzz on the other hand is coming with a fresh face and is low-key doing all the things that Uber isn’t, which includes valorising the people who work for you. In an industry that thrives on innovation, employee satisfaction seems to be the latest most happening trend now. It is not the usual thought that will come to mind when we think about innovation, but it has been pretty effective so far.
Whether it’s been years or just under a week ago, Uber has continued to maintain that drivers are not a fundamental part of the services they offer. Three years ago, the company insisted on calling drivers, independent third party contractors, in a court case, as it sought to distance itself from the full brunt of the law in a slew of charges involving driver misconduct. The “cut my arm to save my body” strategy may have worked perfectly (or not so much), but it has the major drawback of being short term and alienating. Drivers and other employees do not trust the company and in such an environment, success becomes tricky. RYDZZ is leveraging this very delicate position, by focusing on not only the clients, but drivers as well for an altruistic approach to its business, which values both the consumer and the employee.
At RYDZZ, the belief is that employees are one fundamental half of a syzygy that includes clients, making them a priority group and more than just indie third parties as Uber would have them believe. In addition to a solid employee-friendly model, the newbie company brings a fresher and more varied package of services to the market, which is just as flexible, as they are affordable.
