Jakarta, 31 March 2021. PT Bank Danamon Indonesia Tbk (Danamon), this day, distributed 100 COVID-19 vaccines to selected Danamon frontliners and senior citizens ages 60 years and above at the 23rd floor of Bank Danamon Tower. This activity is part of the 'Vaccination Program for the Financial Services Sector' organized by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia, National Bank Association (Perbanas), Indonesian Bankers Association (IBI), Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX), Indonesian Clearing and Guarantee Corporation (KPEI) and Indonesian Securities Guarantee Agency (KSEI). In attendance during this vaccination activity were Bank Danamon executives notably President Director Yasushi Itagaki, Deputy President Director, Michellina Triwardhany, Compliance Director Rita Mirasari and Human Capital Director Heriyanto Agung Putra.
“Employee health and safety form part of Danamon's top priorities. We firmly believe that we can better serve our customers and society if our employees can work safely and comfortably. Danamon is grateful to the Ministry of Health and government for conducting this vaccination program. By continuing to coordinate with relevant agencies and health services, Danamon remains committed to support the successful implementation of this vaccination program," said Bank Danamon President Director, Yasushi Itagaki.
Simultaneously, a similar event was held at the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) graced by President Joko Widodo who was accompanied by Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani, Minister of Health Budi G. Sadikin and Chairman of the Financial Services Authority Wimboh Santoso who monitored the COVID-19 vaccination program for banking and capital market sectors. It is hoped that this vaccination for the banking frontliners can provide a sense of security and comfort for both employees and customers, because the financial services industry is the heart of the economy. Along with the provision of vaccinations to banking frontliners, financial industry players must also provide vaccinations to the elderly.
Bank Danamon has actively participated in breaking the chain of transmission of the Covid 19 virus since the beginning of the pandemic, while maintaining safety and health of employees who serve customers.
To cope with the pandemic, Bank Danamon implemented several policies, including enforcing travel restrictions and a work-from-home policy. In addition, Danamon also installed health corners and thermal scanners to prevent the spread of the virus within the Bank's premises.
At the onset of the pandemic, Bank Danamon established a Crisis Command Center (CCC) aimed at prioritizing the health and safety of employees and their families. It also launched the D-Care application for employees. Through this app, employees can get information and monitor their health and environmental conditions so they can proactively and swiftly respond and provide assistance.
Bank Danamon also facilitated conventional and sharia financing to PT Bio Farma to produce COVID-19 vaccines which would accelerate national economic recovery.
