Kovai.co – a premier enterprise software and B2B SaaS company based out of Coimbatore, India, and London, U.K, has announced its first step into immunizing its corporate family today. Founded in 2011, Kovai.co employs more than 250+ people and is one of the fastest-growing SaaS firms in the city.
The company has been continually vocal about its involvement in Coimbatore and its vision to make Coimbatore the biggest SaaS region in the state after Chennai. Giving priority to safety, Kovai.co has now announced a vaccination drive for all employees along with their dependents. The company is ensuring that safety protocols and government mandates are followed and is rushing to ensure that the drive is conducted as securely as possible.
“With the beginning of the second wave, we have seen a rapid increase of cases in Coimbatore and it has been a very difficult time for the city. Operating from the city, we are responsible for not just our Kovai.co family but also their dependents,” says Saravana Kumar, explaining the reason for the company’s move to begin this initiative. “We believe these steps will eventually reduce the risks associated with COVID-19 and have a strong impact on the number of fatalities within our surroundings,” he added.
The company has tied up with top-tier health partners, KG Hospitals, for enabling this vaccination drive. The hospital plays a key role in internally organizing all the arrangements as per safety protocols and coordinating with Kovai.co for seamlessly orchestrating the drive. This partnership has resulted in the vaccination of nearly 100 employees and their dependents and aims on reaching more than 500 people with this initiative. In addition to this, Kovai.co has ensured that its employees are fully covered under corporate insurance and has announced a special Covid-19 sick leave for the recovery period.
