Pernod Ricard to pay vaccination cost for its own employees, families including third party staff
Liquor company Pernod Ricard India on Tuesday said it will incur covid-19 vaccination costs for all its employees and their families while also ensuring vaccination coverage for third-party staff under the vaccination drive beginning 1 April that allows inoculation for those aged 45 years and above.
The move is in line with what several large corporates have announced regarding employee vaccination.
Pernod Ricard’s policy allows for coverage of employees and their families including—spouse, kids, parents and in-laws.
“The vaccine rollout presents a ray of hope to normal life, and we are doing all we can to win this battle against the pandemic. Facilitating a seamless COVID-19 vaccination cover for all employees, third party staffs, and their immediate families is our first commitment to thank their efforts and keep them safe," said Shrikant Lonikar, CHRO, Pernod Ricard India.
