Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, we have all looked forward to returning to a semblance of normalcy that includes safe in-person gatherings and an eventual return to work in the office. The widespread distribution of COVID-19 vaccines is one of the most effective steps that state and local governments have relied upon as they slowly, but surely loosen restrictions. However, receiving a COVID-19 vaccine is an individual choice each employee may or may not choose to make. As an employer, you must also decide how you want to handle the topic of COVID-19 vaccinations in your workplace and how it will impact your reopening plan (if you have ceased in-person operations).
While every employer has specific circumstances to consider, below are some general tips that can guide your employee COVID-19 vaccine communications.
Getting more of your staff on board with signing up for a COVID-19 vaccine will not happen overnight. Committing to these steps and incorporating them consistently into your employee communications will help build your employees’ confidence in the COVID-19 vaccines, and get your company on track to business as normal.
