Like most responsible businesses, Datagroup and Volia launched vaccination of their employees. Back in May, the companies made out the lists of all interested people and, as soon as there were enough vaccines for mass vaccination, submitted applications to the coordination center of the Ministry of Health.
"Even though vaccination is voluntary and internal staff surveys showed a small percentage of those willing to get vaccinated, now, there is a fairly large number of those who want to protect themselves from the coronavirus. Therefore, the company took on the obligation to organize this process for the convenience of our employees. We have already launched vaccination in Kyiv. We have done vaccination for two days in the Volia office, and next week we will start vaccinating employees of the Datagroup office. In parallel with Kyiv, all those willing to get vaccinated from both companies in Dnipro, Zaporizhzhia, and Nikopol were vaccinated. Sumy, Poltava, Kremenchuk, Lutsk, Rivne, Lviv, Ternopil, Uzhhorod, Ivano-Frankivsk, and Khmelnytsky are next in line. In these cities, we have also applied for centralized vaccination by mobile teams and will continue to do so in other regions where we have offices until there are those willing to get vaccinated", said Serhii Beresnev, Datagroup HR Director.
With the onset of the pandemic, both Datagroup and Volia reorganized their workflows. The maximum number of employees began to work remotely, all of them were provided with the necessary means of protection, everyone was offered to be vaccinated against influenza, everyone received vitamins during seasonal illnesses, everyone received a health insurance policy. Companies paid for COVID-19 testing and provided financial assistance when insurance was insufficient. And now, even with the recession of the pandemic and given that Ukraine was classified as a "green" zone, the companies continue to take care of their employees and take all necessary measures to preserve the health of the team.
