The entire medical infrastructure of the country is overwhelmed by the rising cases. Thus, TKM has come up with a host of new measures to promote its employees’ wellbeing during this pandemic.

To ensure uninterrupted access to all the necessary support, TKM is operating a medical hotline accessible around the clock. Members also get information about specialist doctors and hospitals and opt for ambulance services via this hotline. The company is also operating one-on-one counselling for members who want psychological support.

The Japanese car manufacturer is also providing its employees with a Covid home care kit. This kit includes all medical essentials like basic medicines, oximeter, masks, thermometer, sanitisers and more.
