These benefits will be in addition to the support the company already gives through life insurance, medical insurance and other statutory benefits in line with policies and local laws across the globe.
All of these can be availed by the employee’s immediate family—spouse, parents, and children and siblings up to 21 years of age.
“People are at the heart of everything we do, and as a part of our commitment towards helping the Tech Mahindra family and the society at large ride over these difficult times, we are rolling the ‘Covid Support Policy’ to ensure a sustainable income and livelihood for families of our associates who succumb or have succumbed to Covid,” said Harshvendra Soin, global chief people officer and head–marketing at Tech Mahindra.
The company said it will provide jobs at Tech Mahindra for family members eligible to be employed based on fulfilment of key criteria, opportunity to upskill through Tech Mahindra Learning Resources & Career Counselling to enable the family to earn sustainable income to support their livelihood and reimbursing education expenses up to standard 12th or equivalent for the employee’s children.
Recently, the company appointed a ‘wellness officer’ to institutionalise holistic wellness of all employees, partners, and vendors amidst the pandemic.
Tech Mahindra has also collaborated with leading hospitals to convert some of its campuses into Covid care units and has launched an exclusive Covid-19 vaccination drive for its employees and their dependent family members across India.
The company said it will also cover the cost of vaccination for its employees globally, including third-party employees.
