Fulfilling its commitment to safety, amid the ongoing pandemic, Phoenix Petroleum has announced that nine of its stations nationwide are manned by fully vaccinated staff and forecourt crew. Composed of 40 100% inoculated personnel, the first Phoenix stations nationwide to have this added protection for its customers include Phoenix Mandalagan in Bacolod, Phoenix Malanday 1 and 2 in Valenzuela City, Phoenix Moncada in Tarlac, and Phoenix Sta. Maria, Malhacana, Plaridel Bypass, and Meycauayan 1 and 2 in Bulacan.
“Part of our COVID-19 response is to encourage our employees, especially our frontliners, to get vaccinated as this will not only ensure continued service, but also offers more safety for our customers, and added protection to the health of our workforce and their families,” Phoenix Petroleum President Henry Albert Fadullon said. “We are glad to share that we are on our way to make every Phoenix touchpoint safer and protected against COVID-19, starting with these nine stations. Soon, more Phoenix stations will follow suit as we ramp up our company-wide vaccination campaign,” he added.
Last month, the company’s retail team led an internal vaccination drive to encourage more Phoenix frontliners to register for their local government unit’s vaccination drive, and be protected. According to Fadullon, top management and Phoenix dealers all over the country were among the first to get their vaccines to set an example for safer customer service.
Such initiatives, together with the intensive vaccination information and awareness drive, resulted in 86% of the Phoenix workforce being vaccinated by August 2021, while the rest of the employees have already registered, and are currently awaiting their vaccination schedules.
Since the onset of the pandemic, Phoenix has been active in its response to the new normal, launching innovative ways to serve its customers, finding ways to help the community, and ensuring the safety of its employees. The 18th International Business Awards recognized these efforts, and recently awarded the company a Silver Stevie for the Most Exemplary Employer of the Year category in relation to the pandemic.
Phoenix was also among the first companies to purchase vaccines for its employees, and it has since extended its vaccination program to accommodate families of employees nationwide.
In June 2021, the company partnered with the Davao City government and the Department of Health Region XI to host a five-day vaccination drive for the city. Over 5,000 individuals were jabbed with COVID-19 vaccine during the initiative.
