Sonalika has announced a slew of measures to provide financial support to its dealers and their employees suffering from the devastation caused by COVID-19 pandemic. In order to keep them optimistic during these troubled times, Sonalika has pledged for extensive support to dealers’ employees by covering the medical expenses related to COVID-19 treatment. Further, the company has also assured financial assistance in case of any unexpected mis-happening (demise of an employee due to COVID-19), thereby offering mental support.
Sonalika’s slew of measures
Medical expense assistance: A sum up to Rs. 25,000 shall be paid by Sonalika to cover the medical expenses incurred by dealership employee due to the COVID-19 infection. This is in addition to other schemes that are already in force to cover kids of dealers’ employees for medical assistance and education of up to Rs. 50,000 annually.
Financial assistance in case of demise of a dealer associate or employee: Sonalika has assured a sum of Rs. 200,000 that shall be paid to the deceased person’s family members. This is to assure some peace of mind to the family that suffers an unrepairable loss. The company has also requested its dealers to support the aggrieved family financially to best of their ability.
Speaking the measures taken by the company, Raman Mittal, Executive Director, Sonalika Group, said, “The second wave of COVID-19 has been extremely unpredictable and unfortunately has impacted many of our business associates and channel partners, especially dealer employees. We believe that no financial assistance can make up for any kind of health loss or untimely demise of an individual. However, through the new extensive support measures such as medical expense assistance up to Rs. 25,000 and financial support of up to Rs. 2 lakh to the immediate family member in case of demise due to COVID-19, we remain committed to stand together with our dealers and their employees across the country while assuring mental support to all.”
He added, “While we urge everyone to continue exercising COVID-19 safety protocols, we also request our Sonalika family members to stay in a positive state of mind as this will empower us to come out as a winner as we gradually come out of the pandemic.”
Sonalika has already been undertaking vaccination drive for its pan India workforce along with fully sponsored Dealer’s Employees COVID Vaccination Scheme launched in the month of April 2021. These initiatives along with financial support will get them further peace of mind that how much each one is valued by the organisation.
