As businesses are re-opening their doors this week, we carried out a survey with our members to get their feedback around the covid vaccine and find out if they were implementing a ‘No Jab, No Job’ policy within their businesses.
Whilst a third recognise that having a jab is necessary to maintain an appropriate level of safety in the workplace, only 2% have actually changed employment contracts to insist on one, and only three out of every twenty plan to require some form of Covid passport to be held by customers.
Notwithstanding the low level of insistence, only 1 in 20 have experienced any issues or resistance from staff, suggesting that the staff themselves treat their personal Covid safety as a priority, and less than 20% of the businesses in the survey have reported that they have a consultation policy in place to address any concerns.
Managing Director, Ian Cass commented, “There is clear evidence from employees that they treat their own, and their customers’ safety, as paramount, but in the absence of any direct requirement and support from the Government it is understandable the business owners are reluctant to incur the additional costs of both ‘Covid Passport’, and ‘No Jab, No Job’ policies.”
