Over 550 DFF staffs were affected by the floods, living without basic necessities such as clean water and shelter. Many had damage to their property, destruction of crops, loss of livestock, and a deterioration of health due to waterborne diseases. To stand besides their employees in this difficult time, Unilever Bangladesh is providing a sum of BDT 50 lacs of monetary assistance over July and August and distributing water purifier tablets and protective gear like gum boots.
“The Distribution Field Force (DFF) are an integral part of UBL. Despite the impact of the flood, they are continuing their work and servicing the market to ensure business continuity. At Unilever, we are committed to the health and wellbeing of our staff, and as a company, rallied together to stand beside our DFF in their difficult time. Afterall, when you take care of your people, they will take care of the business,” said Sakshi Handa, Human Resource Director, Unilever Bangladesh Limited.
The distributors in the most affected towns have also extended their support to the DFF. As one resilient team, Unilever Bangladesh is ensuring the continued safety and wellbeing of the DFF and their families.
