Escorts, India’s leading Engineering conglomerate, has adopted a series of measures to support employees amidst second wave of Covid-19 pandemic. These include both healthcare and financial aid for employees and their families in these difficult times.
The company has facilitated over 10,000 Covid tests for its employee base with 24x7 telemedicine support for employees and their dependents. In association with an Insurance partner, Escorts since last year has supported its employees with Rs. 50,000/- financial aid on testing positive for Covid-19.
Free-of-cost Vaccination Camps are being organised across all plants and office locations. The company aims to vaccinate all its employees at the earliest and is in the process of tying-up with partners to support employee families too for vaccination.
The company has set up an in-house Covid Command Centre for providing medical, information & counselling support to the employees and their family. Also, financial grant has been announced for the family in case of unfortunate death of any employee.

It’s our collective effort and strength which will help us come out of this crisis.”
