Global COVID-19 Workplace Challenge
People are our most valuable asset and vaccination has a role to play in supporting employee health and contributing to a healthy workplace. Howorth Air Tech are pleased to announce that we have signed up as a business partner to the Global COVID-19 Workplace Challenge.
What is the CONVINCE Workplace Challenge?
CONVINCE seeks to build a global movement of employers of every size to promote vaccine uptake among their workers by addressing vaccine hesitancy from a position of facts, trust and the ability to address potential barriers with practical actions. The initiative is the private sector arm of the global, multi-sector CONVINCE (COVID-19 New Vaccine Information, Communication, and Engagement) initiative that advances vaccine literacy and promotes vaccine acceptance.
Why are Howorth joining the Challenge?
Howorth are joining this global effort to support and encourage the uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine, to demonstrate our commitment to employee safety and well-being. Vaccination remains the single strongest protection against COVID-19, and it is critical that as many people as possible take up the offer of a vaccine and booster programme to protect themselves, their families and their colleagues.
How will Howorth support the COVID-19 vaccine uptake?
As a business partner to CONVINCE we join a global network of employers that agree to promote vaccine literacy and encourage COVID-19 vaccination among employees, suppliers, and customers. We aim to make our workplace safer, providing guidance on how to keep you and your families safer, and sharing up-to-date information from health professionals to follow the science. As a business we will take action to encourage all our employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19, we will do this by:
- Listening to employees’ needs and concerns about the impact and prevention of COVID-19
- Following the latest public health guidance to protect ourselves, our employees, our workplace, our customers, and our community from COVID-19
- Promoting vaccine literacy based on the latest scientific evidence of vaccination benefits and risks
- Encouraging vaccine confidence and uptake
- Building confidence in vaccination in our workforce, broader networks and communities
