Infosys will pay for COVID-19 vaccinations of employees and immediate family: Pravin Rao

Information technology consulting company Infosys will bear the COVID-19 vaccination cost for its employees and their immediate family and is presently searching to collaborate with healthcare providers for the execution.

“Infosys is looking at partnering with healthcare providers to vaccinate employees and their immediate families as eligible under the guidelines given by the Government of India and as per approved procedures and timelines. Infosys will cover the vaccination cost for the employee and immediate family as part of our focus on health and wellness,” Pravin Rao, Chief Operating Officer,  Infosys, said in a statement.

When COVID-19 hit almost exactly a year ago, the software major was able to make its 2.4 lakh employees spread across 40 countries work from home in days. Similar to most of its competitors, a majority of its employees continue to work from home.

“For employees who are eligible and choose to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, Accenture will cover the cost for the employee and their dependents who are part of our medical benefits programme. We are grateful to our people for their patience and resilience as we work together to manage through these extraordinary times,” said Rekha M. Menon, Chairperson and Senior Managing Director, Accenture in India, in a statement.
