Ola will provide free COVID-19 vaccination to all employees and their dependents. This makes Ola among the first global mobility companies to announce a COVID vaccination drive.
The vaccination drive will also be extended to all the direct contractual employees, consultants, advisors of the company and their immediate dependents including spouse, kids and parents, comprising more than 24,000 people. The COVID vaccination drive will be over and above Ola’s existing medical insurance policy.
The company is partnering with relevant authorities to conduct the vaccination drive. The vaccination will be offered on a voluntary basis. Ola will provide requisite infrastructure and logistics for the vaccination with the drive being conducted across all the geographies it operates in globally.
Ola will start extending end-to-end support to those applicable starting with the ones above the age of 60 and those 45+ with co-morbidities. It will expand this process to include the rest as soon as the government rolls out the next phase of the vaccination drive.
Ola has played an integral role in COVID protection in the workforce and had set up a COVID Action Task Force last year to undertake multiple precautionary measures to ensure safety and well-being of all employees. In addition to the installation of world-class technologies such as thermal sensing camera, AI-based face mask identification, smartphone based entry and exit system, Ola has been actively conducting Smart Sample testing on a regular basis to curb potential spread of the virus.
