9 of 10 LTG employees willing to be vaccinated
About 90 percent or 9 out of 10 employees of the Lucio Tan Group of Companies are ready and willing to get themselves vaccinated once the firm’s vaccine orders arrive by the middle of this year.
In a recent sign-up conducted by Tan’s holding firm LT Group, Inc. (LTG) about 90 percent of the group’s more than 50,000 employees and service providers agreed to be inoculated. The high vaccine acceptance was attributed to the aggressive information drive the group has been conducting since early February, the company said in a statement.
LTG president Michael G. Tan said the group has firm vaccine orders for close to 40,000 employees and 14,000 third party service providers of all firms belonging to the Lucio Tan Group of Companies. Service providers include those that employees interact with on a daily basis like security guards and canteen concessionaires. Mechanics are also being drafted to allow employees to access vaccines for their families and households, he said.
“Vaccination is a crucial step towards the path to normalcy. Not only does it protect you from getting severely sick but also protects everyone around you – your family, friends, co-workers and customers – from catching the virus,” Tan stressed.
“Getting vaccinated is also the key to reopen our economy. While we may not immediately return to our old ways, it’s an important step to regain our freedom and the life we once had. I therefore enjoin everyone to get that jab,” he added.
In November 2020, LTG joined some of the country’s biggest conglomerates in signing firm orders for AstraZeneca vaccine through a tripartite agreement with the national government and business advocacy group Go Negosyo led by Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion.
