LBC Moves Closer to Achieving 100% Inoculation Within its Ranks Booster Shots Already Underway | PR Post | MarkMyName

LBC’s goal to achieve complete herd immunity among their ranks is nearing fruition as they proudly declare that 98% of their workforce has already been inoculated against COVID-19.

 

This comes at a time when stricter safety protocols have been reactivated in Metro Manila and nearby provinces because of the huge spike in COVID cases post-holiday season and the spread of Omicron.

 

LBC’s nationwide “Bakuna sa Lahat” Program, which started last August 2021, yielded impressive results. In NCR, 6,452 employees, their dependents, and truckers were vaccinated through the initiative, while 1,798 were vaccinated through their respective local government units (LGU), achieving 98% vaccinated individuals.

 

For provincial areas, spanning North Luzon, South Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, an overwhelming 9,589 employees, dependents, and truckers were vaccinated-  giving LBC a 97% rate for all regions.

 

Apart from ensuring the health and well-being of their employees, LBC was also able to help the communities by donating 498 vials covering 4,980 doses of vaccines to various LGUs in NCR and other nearby provinces.

 

To ensure that the program ran seamlessly and complied with the  Department of Health’s standards and step-by-step inoculation process,  LBC partnered with no less than 75 accredited hospital service providers to carry out the step by step inoculation process- from registration to counseling, screening of a medical physician, immunization and monitoring.

 

LBC’s vaccine drive elicited a positive response from its workforce- owing to its comprehensive three-step process of Education, Encouragement, and Engagement.

 Initially, LBC tapped their officers to disseminate relevant information to all their teams in huddles and meetings. According to Jhayner Bufi, LBC’s Chief People Officer, they engaged the company’s managers to be the spokespersons on the safety and effectiveness of the vaccines -given their sphere of influence over their employees.




 What followed were poster statements—with LBC President Miguel Camahort and other officers as main influencers. Organic HR and Admin employees were also tasked to organize, campaign, communicate, mobilize, and roll out the vaccine campaign seamlessly. To make the sign-ups easy, an in-house registration e-link was also established.




 

And while they are close to attaining 100% vaccination among their ranks, LBC continues to implement strict safety protocols in all their workspaces- especially in their branches which have remained open and operational without pause. In addition, Bufi reveals that booster shots for employees and their dependents are already underway amidst the Omicron spread. According to Bufi: “The way LBC has been servicing and moving commerce around, we'd like it to be handled by safe, healthy people”.

 By stepping up their “Bakuna sa Lahat” program, LBC believes they can continue with their mission to move forward and serve the Filipino excellently and safely in the fields of the express courier, cargo, and money remittance service.

Rewrite Your Story with Viviamo’s 2022 Planners and Journals | PR Post | MarkMyName

Surely, you still have a holiday hangover. There’s something about being able to spend time (albeit online or in small groups) with friends and loved ones in this cuddle weather that allows us to have restful minds and peaceful hearts even just for a moment.

We, at Viviamo, want to reassure Filipinos that these feelings of hopelessness and despair can be replaced with hope and positivity. That is why we offer you the tools to help you switch from that mindset of ‘simply surviving’ to thriving! We have the power to rewrite our own stories,” shares Viviamo CEO Darlyn Ty-Nilo.

“I wasn't much of a journaling person and was satisfied with simply writing my schedules on sticky notes. However, last year was highly toxic for me and I was in an identity crisis. When I was scrolling through Facebook, I saw an advertisement for the 2021 Journal and was intrigued with the design --the girl on the cover is beautiful and she looked confident. I liked the design, the content, and the marketing strategy so I decided to give journaling a try. A year has passed and I don't think I can ever live without your journal; I don't think I can ever use another journal if it's not the BDJ version. I've imprinted my soul into it and I will continue to support you as your journal has with its owners.” shares Trisha Manao, one of the many users of the BDJ Power Planner.

Celebrity Chef Tatung Sarthou to Release Two New Books | PR Post | MarkMyName

Celebrity chef Tatung Sarthou rings in the holiday season bearing gifts for everyone. The author-restaurateur is releasing not one but two follow-ups to his bestselling Simpol The Cookbook. 

First in the back-to-back release is Simpol Kitchen Secrets, a guidebook on cooking skills and techniques. Here, Chef Tatung breaks down the fundamentals of culinary arts for everyone’s easy reference. It is told through over 100 recipes, 200 kitchen tips, and 600 colored photos and artwork. 

The second is Baking Simpol, a cookbook with 100 recipes for desserts, breads, and pastries. Chef Tatung, who has earned praises for his innovative takes on dessert classics such as bibingka cheesecake, tsok-Nut cake, and pichi-pichi with torched queso de bola topping, lays down the art, crumb by crumb, to satisfy your sweet tooth any time, any day. 

“’Yung culinary knowledge natin it belongs to the people. Kasi hindi naman orihinal na ideya na nanggaling sa akin. Hindi naman siya kaalaman na ako ‘yung nakadiskubre,” says Chef Tatung. 

“Kung ako natutunan ko siya dahil may mga taong nagturo sa akin, may mga taong nag-share sa akin, bakit ko ipagkakait sa tao na matuto din?” 

So, for those who are looking to elevate their Christmas feast or just searching for the perfect Secret Santa gift, Chef Tatung has you covered just in time. 

Simpol Kitchen Secrets will be out by November 30. This shall be followed by Baking Simpol two weeks later. Both books will be available locally and abroad through Lazada, Shopee, Amazon US, Amazon Canada, Amazon SG, and eBay. 

The two titles shall be published under Vertikal Books, a boutique press specializing in the creative nonfiction genre, specifically culinary content. 

Simpol Kitchen Secrets and Baking Simpol shall be the fifth and sixth books penned by Chef Tatung. His previous works have won the prestigious World Gourmand Awards in Paris, France. Last October, two of his bestselling books, Rice to the Occasion: Kanin to Kakanin and Simpol: The Cookbook, were also featured in the Frankfurt Book Fair, one of the largest and oldest trade fairs for books and content in the world.
