Coping with the Pandemic
The COVID-19 outbreak is deeply concerning, and we are aligned with the world’s governments and health care leaders to ensure the safety and well-being of human lives while fighting this global pandemic. We are committed to supporting your business and to providing continuity of service.
Part of The CK Birla Group, a -year old conglomerate with its wings spread across diverse industries including manufacturing, hospitals and technology, we have the resources of the entire Group with us. In this time of crisis, we are here to help maintain continuum in operations by supporting ongoing programs, or even help organizations establish new programs that may be required in the changing economy.
Birlasoft has formed a COVID-19 Leadership Taskforce that meets regularly every single day, to assess the current situation. We have established a WAR room for project teams to easily reach us and use the latest information to answer questions that arise from employees, customers and suppliers to ensure we have the best response and that we all stay connected. We are following the guidelines and preventive measures being advised by the World Health Organization and the Indian Government and adhering to advisories by governments and public health authorities in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific where we operate.
We have instituted many actions to reduce the chance of potential virus transmission, including extensive use of collaboration capabilities for all of us to communicate effectively. The number of secured encrypted laptops, peripherals and internet bandwidth are being increased to ensure secure connectivity to clients and we have a much larger group of employees now successfully working remotely. Birlasoft has an appropriate Business Continuity Plan in place, and we will continue to fight the virus as a community and work towards putting an end to it at the earliest.
With COVID-19 becoming an all-consuming global crisis, Birlasoft has pledged to support the community during this unseen calamity and the lockdown period mandated by Indian Government across borders. A major impact has been afflicted on the lives of daily wage earners, whose count runs into the millions. Birlasoft employees, along with ‘Under The Tree’ (a Noida-based NGO, running an Education and Nutrition Program for underprivileged children and their families) have joined forces to distribute food and hygiene kits to 1000+ daily wage earners in Noida, (India).

We are also encouraging our employees to come forward and lend monetary support to this humanitarian cause. We believe each effort counts; every helping hand will heal this dystopian world to create a better future.
