Under this relief initiative, the aim is to provide support to the affected families, in case of any casualty(ies) of the employee(s), due to Covid between April 2020 and until March 2022.
Home grown tyre major JK Tyre and Industries Ltd. on Friday has announced its initiative ‘JK CARES’, (Covid Assistance, Relief & Support) - a comprehensive Covid 19 relief package for the dependent family of deceased employee across the organization.
Under this relief initiative, the aim is to provide support to the affected families, in case of any casualty(ies) of the employee(s), due to Covid between April 2020 and until March 2022, thus covering both the waves of Covid 19.
Chairman, Shri Bharat Hari Singhania, said “Safety and wellbeing of our employees is of utmost importance for us. As part of our value of “caring for people”, we have been extremely mindful of the need to provide extended support to the families of our beloved employees, who have unfortunately lost their lives.”
“In case of any casualty of any of our employee, we will support the bereaved families on three fronts – financial support for the family by way of continuance of salary, education support for children and medical insurance for the family. All these support systems will be provided to the families for a number of years.”
Mr. Singhania further added that, “Although, any kind of financial support cannot compensate for the magnitude of the loss of our beloved colleague(s); but it is our hope that this support will help the families to regain their confidence and dignity; and charter their journey of success, again”
Driven by its core value of “Caring for People”; the group, which employs over 30000 people globally, firmly believes that its people and their families are the core of its strength and all the efforts are directed to protect each member of the JK Group against this deadly pandemic, said JK Tyre.
