Up to 73% of Eastern Communications’ labor force have already received Covid-19 vaccines. The telco firm said this is in line with its internal program that prioritizes health and safety in its workplace, especially among the company’s essential workers.
“Telecommunications workers are also frontliners at this time as we cater to businesses and households that rely on the internet to continue their operations, work, or online classes,” said Eastern Communications Covid-19 Task Force Chairman Rene Castillo.
“It’s our responsibility as an employer to keep our employees safe when they are on field so that we can continuously and confidently provide our products and services to our clients,” he added.
With over half of its staff already vaccinated, Eastern Communications is more determined to continuously provide quality service among its clients and partners across the country. It is expected that more of its employees will get vaccinated for the rest of the year.
“While the rest of our employees are getting vaccinated, we will still ensure strict compliance with the health and safety protocols set by the IATF. Our goal is to inoculate all the employees who want to be vaccinated by the end of the year so we could deliver the best of our High Tech and High Touch service to our customers,” said Castillo.
Easter Communications announced earlier this year that it has procured Moderna vaccines for the non-mandatory free vaccination of its employees. The company also extended the vaccination program to their staff’s family members at cost.
