Alturas offers P5k, P2.5k for thousands of its employees
In these trying times when the economy is shattered by the CoViD-19 pandemic, and everyone here is already feeling the pangs of hunger because of business downturns and mandated closures, Alturas Group of Companies (AGC) takes a drastic move to rescue its thousands of workers who are now affected financially by the current crisis.
Always looking for the welfare of its employees, top management of AGC provided financial assistance of P5,000 each to all regular employees, in which half of the amount, P2,500, is in the form of gift certificate for their grocery needs, while the other half of the amount P2,500 is in cash.
All casual, Cydem, NESCO, and NICO employees will also be given P2,500 each in which half of the amount P1,250 is in the form of gift certificate for their grocery needs, while the other half of the amount P1,250 is in cash.
According to the Finance Department of AGC, “Aside from the government-initiated financial assistance, this is another financial assistance purely an expense of the company intended for its affected employees. Dako gyod ni nga kantidad nga gasto mismo sa kompanya nga mibati og tukmang kalooy sa tanang mga empleyado nga apektado karon sa kagutom ug kawad-on tungod sa dakong krisis nga giatubang sa nasod ug tibook kalibotan.”
Meanwhile, hundreds of displaced workers had already applied for the Bayanihan Livelihood Assistance Program of AGC which let them get involved in backyard gardening and fish farming. As of last Thursday, March 26, there were more than 100 applicants who availed of the said alternative livelihood program which is coordinated by the Provincial Government of Bohol, through the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPA), Department of Agriculture and Landbank of the Philippines.
The Alturas Bayanihan livelihood program is open to all who are interested and willing to farm at home just to sustain or even earn a living. Fertilizers and seeds are provided free in backyard gardening; while tilapia fry or semilya and starter feeds for the first 30 days are also given free in fish farming. Those who qualify will have initial technical support.
AGC added that basic requirement in backyard gardening is a land space either front or backyards with enough water supply; while a land at least 25 square meters with enough water supply is needed in fish farming.
