LT Group to vaccinate employees of suppliers


    LT Group Inc. has included in its COVID-19 inoculation initiative employees of its suppliers.

    Michael Tan, LT Group president, 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.

    LT Group said about nine in every 10 of its employees are ready and willing to get themselves vaccinated once vaccine orders arrive by the middle of this year.

    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 the pharmaceutical companies.
