Companies take to carrot and stick to vaccinate ‘hesitant’ staff

BL Internet Desk | Updated on July 27, 2021

In India, be it manufacturing, services or in agricultural supply chain, companies are asking employees, associates and workers to take the jab. Some are incentivising it while others are dis-incentivising it by restricting access to workplaces. At the State level, too, Gujarat made it mandatory for commercial service providers, including shopowners and their staff, to get at least the first jab by July 31. Failure to do so would result in closure of the premises, the administration said, as more authorities adopt a carrot or stick approach to increase vaccine coverage.
