It’ll take a million joint efforts to tackle the current global scenario unveiled by the Coronavirus pandemic. And, Conrad Bengaluru joins the fight through its many noble and essential initiatives. By Kumar Shree
Conrad Bengaluru has made its cleaning and hygiene protocols even more rigorous in the current scenario. These protocols have been developed in consultation with global and local public health authorities including the likes of WHO. The team continues to work with governments, public health authorities, and medical professionals during this pandemic.
Complying with the global directive by Hilton Worldwide, the property has also increased the frequency of cleaning its public areas with hospital-grade disinfectants and have increased the availability of hand sanitisers across the hotel. Back of the house operations, food handling, and housekeeping procedures, all have been amped up to best tackle the Coronavirus issue while matching the international service standards of the property.
ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Management System, an international accreditation awarded for food hygiene standards, sings testimony to Conrad Bengaluru’s commitment to the same. From processing the laundry in high temperatures to washing utensils in food-grade chemicals, the property is taking every possible bit of care. Food trucks are allowed strictly as per allotted time slots and any perishable items undergo a food-grade chemical processing before going to the storage. Conrad Bengaluru is ensuring fail-proof hygiene standards at every contact point.
Settings itself apart from other peers, Conrad Bengaluru has also ventured into food delivery for the time being, as it intends to stay connected with customers. “We are not delivering food in a box; it is much deeper than that. We are offering a reason to reminisce fond memories of when guests were dining with us, hoping to bring smiles in this much-needed time of positive vibes,” a statement released by the property read.
The Prestige Group, owning company to Conrad Bengaluru, via its Prestige Foundation, are providing meals and provisions to about 20,000+ daily wage workers, underprivileged children, and the needy in Bengaluru daily. More than 9,000 families, many hospitals, and orphanages have also received provisions for the month. The same extends to all the daily wagers at their labour colonies across India. A 24-hour national helpline has also been set up to aid the needy. These are just the initial efforts, and while the number for these will rise exponentially in the coming days, we can see many additional campaigns as well.
