The RGC Group of Companies, the mother company of the industry leader and foam brand Uratex Philippines, announced the rollout of its vaccination program for its thousands of employees in its various businesses in the country, including all its staff, subcontractors, and extended manpower.
RGC Group targets to inoculate more than 6,000 employees in its various offices, showrooms, and plants across the country to provide safe, convenient, and comfortable services and experiences to its customers. The Company acquired 20,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine through its partnership with Presidential Adviser Joey Concepcion’s GoNegosyo, under its “A Dose of Hope” program.
“We are one with the whole nation in achieving a safe and secure environment, not only for our customers but also for our employees and extended manpower. The vaccination program that we just rolled out will provide much-needed protection to our people and their families, most especially with the spread of the new variant of the COVID-19 virus. We hope that through this effort, we get back to normal operation as soon as possible,” said RGC Group Founder and CEO Mrs. Naty Cheng.
The employee vaccination program of the RCG Group is facilitated by AC Health, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ayala Corporation, that aims to build an integrated healthcare ecosystem that improves healthcare for all. The Company also tapped various accredited healthcare providers to inoculate other employees deployed in other regions of the country.
“We started our employee vaccination program last April of 2021 through #GetUProtected campaign, wherein we hosted lectures and webinars to educate and enlighten us on the effects of these COVID-19 vaccines as well to answer the questions our employees have in their minds. We invited health professionals from public and private organizations to share their knowledge and expertise on the matter, which provided a positive response from our employees,” said Corporate HROD Manager Ms. Owen Diaz De Rivera.
The RGC-Uratex Group of Companies aims to strengthen its workforce and keep everyone and their family safe from the threat of COVID-19 through this vaccination program alongside the national government’s target to achieve herd immunity in the country.
“If there’s one more thing that this pandemic strengthens aside from our faith and strong family bond, that is our love for our country. We, at RCG Group of Companies, are grateful to be able to extend our assistance to our people in these trying times and make use of our resources to promote strong trust and support between the management and its staff and extended workforce,” Mrs. Cheng concluded.
