Commenting on the initiative, Ashish Nayyar, Co-Head India, OakNorth, said: “As our nation fights an unprecedented battle against the pandemic, there is a dire need to support the government with essential resources. Now more than ever, we must come together in solidarity and service to our frontline workers, hospitals, government, and NGOs in their fight against the crisis. At OakNorth, we have set up a support mechanism through which we have donated 100 cylinders to the Uttarakhand government and 10 oxygen concentrators along with 45 oxygen cylinders to the Delhi government.
“In addition to supporting the government, we have also introduced a slew of measures to support our team during these tumultuous times. The health and safety of our team are our priorities. Standing on the backbone of those principles, we are providing our team with access to oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders, oxygen beds in hotels and hospitals for themselves and their immediate family members.
“As many team members in our other markets around the world are keen to help, we have set up a fundraising campaign enabling team members to donate and support those who are being most impacted by the pandemic.
“The company is also involved in many other initiatives aimed at supporting local governments to assist the underprivileged during these challenging times. This is another testimony of OakNorth’s commitment to supporting local communities wherever it operates.
“We’ve always been at the forefront of change leadership and want to continue to cultivate a culture driven by trust and interdependence at OakNorth. During the pandemic, the necessity of soulful and empathetic leadership stood as paramount in light of virtual connections. We held motivational talks, comedy shows, and other entertainment shows, counselling support for staff and their family members to dispel the gloom brought on by the pandemic and keep morale high. We are grateful to the healthcare and frontline workers and we are confident that together, India will overcome this challenge.”
