Already every fifth medium-sized company declares its willingness to create a vaccination point on the premises of its plant. In large enterprises, such a plan is reported by 16 percent of respondents, and in small enterprises by 13 percent. In addition, every fourth employer plans information campaigns recommending employees to vaccinate against Covid-19, and 14 percent make a return to the office dependent on it,- according to the latest "Polish Labor Market Barometer" of the Personnel Service. The company's experts indicate that the readiness of companies to participate in the national vaccination program will accelerate the pace of its implementation and increase the effectiveness of vaccine use.
“There is no provision in labor law that an employee is obliged to be vaccinated. However, the employer can encourage and inform and even allow workplace vaccinations. And there are many indications that this will happen. Recent reports related to the possibility of vaccination at workplaces aroused great interest. Companies are ready to allow employees to vaccinate because it increases the safety of all employees and is a condition for a return to normalcy. A positive signal is that not only the largest but also smaller companies are ready to vaccinate employees,” Krzysztof Inglot, President of the Management Board of Personnel Service, said.
Retailers have the greatest motivation to recommend vaccinations. Already 38 percent of them will implement information campaigns. In industry, on the other hand, 31 percent of companies make their employees subject to vaccinations to return to the office.
