These are very trying times everyone is facing, for companies right down to every single individual.
The Ayala Group is one such company who is standing out during these dark times, thanks to their helpful response to COVID-19.
For starters, all malls owned by Ayala have closed, following the government’s guidelines. However, several establishments that are key to people’s basic needs continue to be operational inside Ayala Malls. Some of these include the supermarkets, pharmacies, and Healthway clinics.
Other establishments within Ayala Malls can breathe a little easier as the Ayala Group will waive mall rental fees. The group is also being lauded for adopting an emergency response package. All employees of the Ayala group will have continued salary and financial support.
Even better, the group is offering wages to leave conversions as well as loan deferments to the extended workforce. These are people who usually have a no-work, no-pay setup, such as construction workers, retail workers, and security agencies, who have been displaced from Ayala Mall properties or projects due to the pandemic.
The Ayala Group’s efforts do not end in simply following preventive measures that can help stop the spread of the virus among guests and staff and providing support to its workers.
It is no secret that there is a shortage of personal protective equipment in the country, particularly in hospitals. Through the Department of Health, the Ayala group has donated over 10,000 N95 masks throughout the metro’s key hospitals, such as PGH, Philippine Heart Center, and East Avenue Medical Center.
The Ayala Group continues to reach out to the Department of Health to provide assistance to medical professionals as well as other frontliners.
As part of Ayala Corporation, under Ayala Land Inc., Seda Hotels is also cooperating with the government. Closure of the following hotels have been implemented: Seda BGC, Seda Vertis North, Seda Residences Makati, and Seda Nuvali.
People can no longer make bookings during the lockdown however, future guests may make reservations for later dates. Luckily, the following hotels throughout the country are offering Advance Purchase promos. Do visit these sites if you need to make bookings for future plans:
