It now aims to inoculate all 1867 employees located in the Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai and NCR offices. The vaccine being administered is Covishield.
Being a people-first organization, Embassy Group believes the health and safety of our employees is of utmost importance.

We encourage other companies to come forward to set up vaccination drives and reduce the stress on the healthcare system of our country.”~ Maria Rajesh, Chief Human Resource Officer, Embassy Group
