our effort is to limit the impact as we are committed to ensure safety and
wellbeing of people.â€
COVID-19 exposed everyone to a different reality
with an increased focus on safety and well-being. The company launched toolkits
covering support material and learning on topics such as leading from a
distance, maintaining emotional well-being, building resilience in times of
change and uncertainty. All factories and offices conduct testing camps,
fumigation and sanitisation of the workplace to combat COVID-19.
