Preparing Your Business for COVID-19 Vaccines | Special 3-Part Webisode Series
#1: Considerations for HR, Operations & Sr. Leaders

COVID-19 continues to create significant health and economic challenges, but hope is on the horizon as vaccinations are being administered.  As we enter this next phase in the COVID-19 recovery and eradication, employers will have a key role to play in the WNY vaccination efforts because employers are often perceived as more trustworthy than the government.

From employee communications and segmentation to the administration of the vaccines, getting shots into arms is multi-faceted and brings numerous challenges.  That is why we have created this webisode series to help employers navigate this new, but critically important territory. We’ve also provided a comprehensive set of resources on our website.

Attendees of each event will receive:

  • Answers to key questions that businesses should consider, followed by action steps.
  • Supporting resources, including templates for employee, customer, and other stakeholder communications.
  • Business case studies and examples from Buffalo Niagara business leaders to provide ideas and inspiration.

This is a must-attend for any employer who cares about their workforce, their neighbors, and the economic recovery of the region. Let’s strategically work together to come out strong.

Watch this event recording from 4/16/21 to get an overview of up-to-date NYS guidance/ CDC recommendations on vaccine groups, current distribution sites, and opportunities for employers to administer vaccines. Other Topics Include:
  • Is the vaccine covered under insurance?
  • Safety and efficacy information – why it works/why it’s important/herd immunity
  • HR issues – revisiting the issue of mandated vaccines vs allowable exceptions
  • PTO for vaccines – explain the new NYS mandate
  • Other of steps employers should take
