MANILA, Philippines, Jan. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- VXI Global Holdings B.V. Phils., a leader in customer experience (CX) management, today announced its intent to deliver COVID-19 vaccinations free-of-charge to its entire Philippine workforce of 20,000 employees following the vaccine distribution and administration of the government allocation framework and priority guidelines. It is one of the leading companies of the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry which is considered an essential service by the Philippine government during this pandemic.
This program is part of "A Dose of Hope," an innovative trilateral partnership between the Philippine government, British-Swedish science-led biopharmaceutical company AstraZeneca and leading private-sector businesses to address the COVID-19 health crisis. A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was signed on January 14, 2021, to secure additional doses of vaccine as the country prepares for its immunization program this year. The program is part of the Philippine government's ambitious mission to vaccinate all 108 million Filipinos.
"The tripartite agreement states even with the second part, we will be purchasing the vaccines from AstraZeneca and we will be donating 100 percent to the government," said Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo founder Sec. Joey Concepcion on CNN's the Final Word with Rico Hizon in mid-December 2020. "Part of the tripartite agreement states that 50 percent of the vaccines will be for the use of the donors, their employees, but following the same protocols for the frontliners, as well."
"By partnering with leading private organizations like VXI Global Holdings, we expect to accelerate the vaccine deployment once it is available by end of second to early third quarter this year," added Concepcion. "This initiative represents a meaningful step forward for our country as we prepare for our nationwide immunization programs."
"We are committed to doing all we can to keep our employees safe and to keep the economy going," said Jared Morrison, VXI's Chief Operating Officer. "We're privileged to take a lead bringing much-needed vaccinations to our employees and to the Philippine people. We will make these vaccinations available free to every employee in our Philippine workforce who wants it."
Renowned for its "Passion for People" ethos that emphasizes employee wellness and safety, VXI operates 11 centers in the Philippines. It is a Hall of Fame inductee and three-time winner of the International ICT Awards for "Best Contact Center and BPO Company."
VXI ordered 80,000 doses from AstraZeneca, enough to vaccinate thousands of Filipinos.
