The Heat is On: Vaccine & Testing Solutions

December 29, 2021

Employers nationwide are making moves on Vaccination and Testing tracking, now that the Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard is here to stay, and many business leaders are overwhelmed trying to find a technology solution that fits their current tech atmosphere. OSHA stated that they will not begin issuing citations for noncompliance before January 10th, and for testing noncompliance before February 9th.

That’s not a lot of time to get technology up and running, especially considering the holidays. Employers need to get a solution in place, if they have not already done so.

We know many employers are feeling the pressure to get something set up fast, so here are a few points to take into consideration as you are making your Vaccine & Testing technology decisions:

  • Do your current tech providers have a solution in place that is ready to go?
  • How quickly can the solution be implemented?
  • What is a realistic time frame for gathering employee vaccine data?
  • How is the solution safeguarding sensitive employee data?
  • Is the solution adaptable to changing requirements such as booster shots, reporting needs, etc?
  • Will the solution integrate with other HR tech as needed?
