I’m pleasantly surprised AND disappointed in Uber’s employee communication. First, the Uber drivers (the face of Uber to those who use the service) are not employees—they are partners, hence the quotation marks in my headline. Though many who use the service might see them as employees, they are not.
On Monday, March 2, to enhance its “partner” communications, Uber launched a brand new partner magazine called Momentum. Check that, a partner print publication called Momentum.
The surprising part
Before we get into the “print is dead” argument, I love print publications. I think they are great. Soapbox aside, they are the true mobile format. And they never run out of power.
