For almost four months that the Philippines has been hit by a dreaded disease, the country has witnessed various events from the rising numbers of COVID-19 confirmed cases, death tolls, recovered patients, the heroism of frontliners, lockdown implementations, different situations of every Filipino family, and many more.
We have recognized the full meaning of solidarity from the smallest act of staying at home up to saving and sacrificing the lives of our frontliners, and the act of sharing by ordinary citizens and biggest companies in the country.
Many big companies have taken the extra mile not only for the welfare of their employees but as well as for sharing a timely and efficient contribution to the community. Hotel Sogo, one of the leading lodging chains in the country is working around the clock to shelter our healthcare frontliners amidst the crisis.
Hotel Sogo continuously protecting the ones who are protecting us.
More than just a slogan
Donation of relief goods to stranded Indigenous People (IP) in the metro in coordination with National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) due of the pandemic.
“So Clean, So Good!” The famous slogan that Hotel Sogo has been upholding over the years of providing top-notched services and amenities to its guests.
Not known to many, alongside this tagline is their commitment and compassion to give back to the community through its “Sogo Cares” under their corporate social responsibility program. Hotel Sogo never fails to deliver timely services to help the indigent communities and fellow Filipinos who are in need.
Since week one of the community quarantine, Hotel Sogo has donated P80-million worth of room accommodations to our medical frontliners. In coordination with 25 hospitals and mayors from different key cities, more than 800 rooms were provided, for free, to the doctors, nurses, medical technicians, and other healthcare providers in the country. To date, Hotel Sogo served as the home of the frontliners as it now accommodates also our fellow overseas Filipino workers and seafarer repatriates.
Series of donation activities in collaboration with other NGOs and local barangays have been conducted amidst the ECQ.
Hotel Sogo unveiled new measures to re-establish confidence in the hotel industry as they adapt to the “new normal” state.
As part of their “So Clean, So Good, So Safe” campaign under its Sogo So Safe Program, Hotel Sogo continuously achieving meaningful action plans by optimizing hotel protocols across its branches nationwide. This immediate response was established to fully secure the safety of its employees especially all the frontliners, OFWs, and seafarer repatriates who are currently sheltering in their hotels.
The partner of choice
As the evolving situation continues, Hotel Sogo is on its track to be the partner of choice of various government agencies, hospitals, and private sectors in addressing pandemic issues in the country in terms of shelter demand.
Intervention such as the provision of free room accommodations to our frontliners was in collaboration with various local government units and hospitals across the country.
Hotel Sogo is closely coordinating with the Department of Health (DOH), Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), and the Department of Tourism (DOT) for the welfare of all frontliners and OFWs sheltering in the hotel as new normal protocols are being implemented.
Some medical practitioners and LGUs have also commended Hotel Sogo’s new normal response for it may serve as a benchmark to other hotels and lodging establishments in adapting the new normal state.
So Clean…So Good…So Safe
Hotel Sogo is always envisioning a future of hotel stay which is clean and safe and provides a quality and meaningful experience to its guests —making it their home away from home.
