Recently, Tech Mahindra announced the COVID-19 vaccination drive for its associates and dependent family members. The vaccination drive started on 15th April in the national capital. The IT company has joined hands with Fortis Healthcare to initiate the first phase of the drive.
The company will cover the cost of vaccination for all its employees and associates and further plans to extend the benefit to its third-party employees as well. The IT major has also urged all its eligible associates to register themselves for vaccination through the government app – CoWIN/Aarogya Setu and follow the mandated process.
Harshvendra Soin, Global Chief People Officer & Head – Marketing, Tech Mahindra, said, “At Tech Mahindra, the well-being of our associates is a foremost priority for us, and this vaccination drive further reiterates our belief in ‘Wellness before Business’. In addition to implementing all safety protocols, the vaccination drive in partnership with Fortis Healthcare will thereby enable us to keep our associates and their loved ones safe.”
A few days back, the IT company has also launched Mhealthy, which is a comprehensive COVID-19 risk screening test to assess the presence of anti-bodies along with all the vital health statistics for COVID-19 co-morbidities. By generating real-time reports, the solution ensures that every individual stepping into the Tech Mahindra premises is healthy; thereby, making it a safe place to work.
Hardeep Singh, Zonal Director, Fortis Hospital, Noida, said, “With a new surge in COVID-19 cases, ensuring vaccination for all is of utmost importance. This will require the coming together of various stakeholders across industries that share the same commitment. We look forward to collaborating with Tech Mahindra to initiate this first-of-its-kind drive to vaccinate employees and ensure a safe return to the workplace.”
Tech Mahindra has also defined stringent safety protocols and introduced several initiatives including, 24/7 Emergency Help Desk to address requests related to hospitalisation and medication along with Associate Welfare Trust and Health Insurance cover for associates’ financial needs and COVID-19 related expenses.
Committed to the fight against COVID-19, the IT giant has institutionalised an integrated approach to not only enable a safe working environment for its associates, but also enable customers to grow their businesses in a safe, secure, and sustainable way.
