Concentrix started its free COVID-19 vaccination for staff on July 6, with an inaugural event in Cubao.
Early this year, Concentrix was among the first private companies to announce its commitment to provide free vaccination, ordering 200,000 doses to cover 100,000 staff in the Philippines. It is also now among the first to execute its inoculation program, called Concentrix #WorthTheShot. By offering COVID-19 vaccines as a voluntary, optional employee benefit, Concentrix honors its commitment to protecting staff health and wellbeing, and doing its part as the country’s largest private employer to help the nation address the pandemic.
Concentrix’s inaugural vaccination event saw hundreds of staff from one of its Quezon City offices get inoculated in the Ali Mall vaccination site in Cubao. The vaccine supply arrival is staggered, but the company is hopeful that as the rest of its orders arrive and as the inoculation schedules progress in all its locations nationwide, all vaccination-registered staff will be done by end of the year.
According to Concentrix SVP and Philippines Country Leader Amit Jagga, “We have always maintained that staff wellbeing is our top priority – it is ‘Worth The Shot’. So we made a commitment very early on to give free COVID-19 vaccination for all staff who volunteer to avail of it. We are pleased to finally be able to start the program today, aided by Active One’s Reliance organization, our authorized medical partner. While we do not control the speed of vaccine supply arrivals, we are committed to implement as swiftly and continuously as we get access to them.”
Concentrix, which also recently concluded the largest virtual Family Day in the country with a public online concert, is committed to ensure staff wellbeing in all of its operations. In June, it broke records for being the only organization hailed as Best Company, Best Employer, Best BPO Contact Center, and Best Foreign-owned Company in the Philippine ICT Awards for 2 years in a row. It was also the first to be recognized for Outstanding Use of ICT Services to Fight COVID-19, for its investments on health and safety, and its support for other employment sectors.
