Delhi-based industrial conglomerate JK Group has announced an initiative, called ‘JK CARES’ (COVID Assistance, Relief & Support), a comprehensive COVID-19 relief package for dependent families of deceased employees across the organisation.
Under this relief initiative, the aim is to provide support to the affected families, in case of any casualty of the employee(s), due to COVID-19 between April 2020 and until March 2022, thus covering both the waves of the pandemic.
Chairman Mr Bharat Hari Singhania, said “Safety and wellbeing of our employees is of utmost importance for us. As part of our value of “caring for people”, we have been extremely mindful of the need to provide extended support to the families of our beloved employees, who have unfortunately lost their lives. In case of any casualty of any of our employee, we will support the bereaved families on three fronts – financial support for the family by way of continuance of salary, education support for children and medical insurance for the family. All these support systems will be provided to the families for a number of years.
