Mondelez Philippines to vaccinate employees and their family members
Free COVID-19 vaccines to be provided for all employees plus two of their beneficiaries
Safeguarding the safety of their people ensures companies can withstand the impacts of the pandemic and strengthen their organization for what comes next. For snacks maker Mondelez Philippines, this includes providing protective vaccines against COVID-19 for their people and their families. “Our frontline essential workers have continued to make, ship, and sell our food products during the pandemic, to ensure Filipino consumers always have continued access to the brands they love,” shares Ashish Pisharodi, Country Director of Mondelez Philippines. “When the pandemic started, we strengthened our safety procedures in our plant and office. These included enhanced protocols around sanitization, mask and face shield use, site-specific technology-enabled visitor management, and social distancing measures. We established on-site testing protocols and secured the services of an infectious diseases doctor on-site to continue guiding us. Colleagues who did not need to report to the office have also been working from home for more than a year now and benefit from a Flexible Working Policy to allow them time to perform both their work and home duties.” This support has also extended to sharing expert guidance to adopt safe practices when commuting to and from work and at home, to reinforce the health and safety culture in its workplace. The same principle applies to the Company’s next step of vaccinating its people, as well as their families.
