“The Delta variant has made employers take new actions to keep their workers — and workplaces — safe and healthy,” said Jeff Levin-Scherz, M.D., population health leader for Willis Towers Watson. “We expect even more employers to institute vaccine mandates in the wake of FDA approval of the Pfizer vaccine. This is not an easy situation for employers to navigate. For instance, new policies such as tracking workers’ vaccinations can improve safety but also bring additional administrative requirements. At the same time, employers will continue efforts to encourage vaccination and communicate regularly with employees.”
