Navigating Vaccines and Other COVID-19 Issues in the Workplace

As businesses and organizations grapple with the future of doing business, leaders face a host of new issues: Can and should you mandate vaccines? How do you determine who has been vaccinated? What safety precautions should you take when not all employees are vaccinated, or when your employees must interact with unvaccinated individuals?

In this free one-hour webinar, you’ll learn the best practices for navigating vaccines and other emerging workplace issues resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic at your nonprofit.

After watching this video, you’ll better understand:

  • Whether and how to implement mandatory and voluntary vaccination programs
  • How to handle information regarding employees’ vaccination status
  • How to determine what COVID-19 safety precautions should remain in place to minimize the spread and reduce your organizational risk
