Kale Logistics Solutions (Kale), a trusted global IT solution partner for several Fortune 500 companies worldwide for the Logistics Industry has emerged as the Employer of Choice during the COVID-19 pandemic. Right from work from home model for employee safety to counselling sessions to paid COVID leave, Kale is setting new frontiers for employee wellbeing.
The first COVID wave may have overwhelmed many tentative and underprepared organizations. But this time, the resolve and fortitude to stand together and support people & families is unmistakable. In addition to accelerating changes on the business front, the pandemic is also manifesting compassion for all — not only employees but communities too that need help.
From March 2020 onwards, Kale mandated all its employees to work from home to ensure their safety along with their families. Task force was set-up on a range of issues, including the work-from home policy, availability of connectivity, health & well-being across the organization and coordinating internal communication & collaboration between employees.
Company-wide town halls are conducted regularly for the leadership team to communicate with the employees and assuring them of no pay-cuts and job security. These town-halls are also medium to urge employees take all necessary health precautions. Kale has also initiated dial-in counselling helps to employees who are overwhelmed with changes in work mode and pandemic adversely affecting their motivation and morale.
Kale is offering company-wide special paid leaves to those tested positive and is also encouraging its employees to get vaccinated to stay safe. As most of them are working from their hometowns, all are requested to get vaccinated in a safe medical facility in their hometown, the cost of which be reimbursed.
Expressing his delight on the development, Mr. Rohit Jain, AVP – Human Resources of Kale Logistics Solutions said, “Kale has always strived to be focused on employee welfare and these activities replicate our values of empathy.
