Paytm announced that it has begun the vaccination drive of its 8,000 plus Field Service Executives (FSEs) who are an integral part of its business development and merchant support network. The company has already completed the first dose of vaccination for over 1000 FSEs in collaboration with leading hospitals across the country. It will extend the drive to the family members of FSEs as soon as the overall supply of vaccines in the country goes up.
Ever since the beginning of the pandemic the company has given utmost importance to the health and well-being of FSEs who play a key role in Paytm’s business development. It is providing them with all possible support including helping them to buy health & well-being supplements to boost their immunity. They have also been provided with a special COVID-19 Mediclaim option to manage hospitalisation and medical costs in the unfortunate event of them or their family members getting affected by the pandemic.
The company has further eased sales targets as well as deadlines for all FSEs. This move will help FSEs to stay more at home and spend time with their families. Paytm has also set up a dedicated team that is in constant touch will all FSEs nationwide & providing them with all possible medical support and financial assistance as necessary.
Paytm Spokesperson said, “The FSE workforce is the backbone of Paytm. We believe it is our duty to ensure that every FSE & their family members are safe and healthy. We have also increased the flexibility on targets & work deadlines to ensure that employees get time to spend with their families. We will continue to take more measures to ensure that our FSEs come out of this crisis stronger.”
