According to an announcement by Indian Bank, it has partnered with healthcare company Practo, in order to provide existing and former employees of the bank and their family members with Practo’s signature corporate health and wellness plans in the times of the covid-19 pandemic.
The state-owned bank said in a statement on Wednesday that it is one of the country’s first financial institutions that has adopted a digital-first approach in strengthening its employee initiatives in the middle of the covid-19 crisis, by opting for the healthcare services offered by Practo.
More 74,000 of its present and retired staff members will be benefited from Practo’s health plans that provide convenient, affordable, and 24×7 access to high-quality care said the Indian Bank.
It also said that “From online consultations with verified doctors across more than 23 specialties, and preventive health check-ups to meeting pharmaceutical needs, and conducting general healthcare sessions, these health plans are specially crafted keeping in mind the demands of working professionals.”
Calling employees as the bank’s most invaluable asset, Shenoy Vishwanath V., executive director at the bank, said “Amid this pandemic, it is our duty to stand by our employees, both serving and retired, and their family members, and ensure they have access to quality healthcare from the comfort of their homes. We are looking forward to strengthening our employee welfare measures by opting for this first-of-its-kind initiative.”
