RedDoorz Supports Its Employees, Hotel Partners Via ‘Hope Hotline’
As the Southeast Asia’s largest and fastest-growing online hotel management and booking platform continues to amplify its regional Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative in the region, RedDoorz announced their newest campaign “Hope Hotline” since R.A. No. 11036 or the “Mental Health Act” was strongly implemented across the Philippines because the government was actively aware of the possible economic fallout of the said global health crisis.
The new program acknowledges the different psychological challenges arising from COVID-19 situation and offers to support the mental well-being of its employees, hotel partners, and their staff by providing online counselling sessions through RedDoorz’s partner counsellors and psychologists. “Hope Hotline” is made available in the Philippines, Singapore, and Indonesia.
“The ongoing pandemic has resulted in immense stress on the Philippine economy, their healthcare systems, and people. As COVID-19 continues to restrict mobility and the immediate outlook remains uncertain, many of us could be experiencing negative emotions detrimental to emotional and mental well-being. Through “Hope Hotline”, we hope to play an active role by helping our staff and partners cope with the new normal. The counselling sessions has provided much needed relief, and spread positivity and optimism,” said Amit Saberwal, Founder and CEO, RedDoorz.
In light of the mobility restrictions, RedDoorz has partnered with several licensed counselors and psychologists to conduct free counselling sessions remotely through online platforms for all RedDoorz employees and its hotel partners’ staff.
Dr. Cely D. Magpantay, PhD,RPsyc,PRm, a clinical psychologist consultant at St. Luke’s Medical Center and one of Hope Hotline’s psychologists said, “The immediacy of transitioning to work from home and the decline of the accommodations sector drastically impact an individual’s well-being. RedDoorz’s Hope Hotline immediately addressed the mental health of its employees and partners. This also showed the thrust of the company to provide employees a better work life balance in times of crisis and, surprisingly, even that genuine care they have for their partner hotels.”
RedDoorz has also hosted a complimentary online webinar for all professionals working in the travel and hospitality industry with a panel of certified counselors and psychologists who has imparted essential skills and tips on managing daily stress.
