The Uralungal Labour Contract Cooperative Society (ULCCS) of India started community kitchens to feed the hungry, specially arranged transportation for guest workers to reach their homes (3000 km away from Kerala), and provided cleaning and sanitising services to cities and hospitals. Their disaster management team was ready to meet any urgent hospital needs. ULCCS and its members have also provided information technology support to Government of Kerala to include what is now the official COVID-19 communication for the government called “GoK Direct”. ULCCS, one of the oldest and largest workers’ cooperative (Primary level) movements in Asia remains committed to take this crisis as an opportunity to redefine the future and move to the next level of excellence by creating meaningful global collaborations and partnerships, bringing together management professionals, engineers, and entrepreneurs to work as a single team to find solutions to redefine the future. ULCCS is collaborating with the Indian institute of Management Kozhikode (IIMK ) on defining the post COVID-19 environment and how organisations like ULCCS can use new opportunities in key areas like construction, IT/ITeS, education, agriculture, tourism sectors. As one of the premier management institutes in India, IIMK can play a pivotal role to study the new possibilities and prepare for the post-COVID-19 era.
