Ed-tech start-up Bada Business sets up free vaccination centre for Employees & their Families
Delhi: Indian-born Ed-tech start-up Bada Business, known to provide the most affordable entrepreneurship trainings in the world, recently set up a two-day, free of cost, vaccination camp for its employees, along with their near and dear ones at the company’s head office in Okhla, New Delhi. The company partnered with the esteemed Fortis Healthcare Limited for this initiative. So far, over 300 people have been administered with the first dose of Covaxin. All employees, ranging from full-time to contract as well as interns, are covered in the drive. The second dose of the vaccine will be rolled out by the third week of June.
Commenting on the initiative, Dr. Vivek Bindra, Founder & CEO, Bada Business said, “We are a people-centric company, our employees are our strength and the building blocks of the Bada Business family. Naturally, their safety and security is of utmost priority to us, and one of the prime ways to enable the same was helping them through the vaccination process, amidst the growing spread of infections across the country. Hence, we are humbled to have contributed to their well-being. In the coming days, we are hopeful of covering over 1800 people, across all of our offices.”
“Additionally, we have undertaken several other steps to build on to our employee-friendly policies. 24×7 internal Covid-19 helpline numbers for employees, zero salary cuts, timely appraisals and incentives, health insurance plans of INR 5 lakhs for employees are namely a few. We are also in the process of making a Covid-response team to stay better equipped against the third wave.” he added.
Bada Business recently launched a fundraiser campaign #IamOxygenMan, in association with Vivek Oberoi, the Kailash Kher Foundation and ISKCON foundation. Within the first day of the launch, the campaign was able to raise a commitment of over 7.5 crores, which will be used to fulfil the healthcare requirements for COVID patients nationally. The collections are also slated to increase the bed capacity in a Covid-care facility that Bada Business had lately initiated in association with ISKCON, from 200 to 2000 beds, in Dwarka, Delhi. The facility is known for providing an all-inclusive care to the Covid patients; from providing a dedicated team of doctors and nurses, to catering to the nutritional needs, everything is being served to the patients entirely free-of-cost.
