SBI General Insurance (SBIG) has reiterated its commitment to the well-being of its people by sponsoring the cost of vaccination for its agents and POSPs. The vaccination is extended to all advisors who have remained active with SBI General since March Year 2020 and are eligible for vaccination under the government’s current norms.
Further, this option is also extended to the spouses and dependent parents or in-laws of the advisor, up to a maximum of four members.
Mr. PC Kandpal, MD and CEO SBI General Insurance said, “At SBIG, we have always kept ‘people’ at the center of everything that we do. The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for businesses and people across the world. It’s certainly commendable to witness our own COVID warriors i.e. our channel partners, who have stood firm and helped the organisation navigate the uncertain environment. Through this initiative, we aim to honour our channel partners – agents & POSPs and encourage them to get vaccinated at the earliest to protect themselves and their families”.
This initiative exemplifies SBIGI’s philosophy ‘We care for your health’ and highlights the integral role that organisations can play in the health and well-being of their people and partners. It is also a step in the right direction as India continues to take steps to mitigate the health and economic impact of the pandemic.
