Intelligent workforce management solutions provider, Humanforce is assisting businesses with complex workplace vaccination issues by introducing a new solution that helps communicate and manage policies.

The solution allows retail organisations to manage the vaccination policies that may apply to their workforce in the future, and to effectively communicate and track this. This will help managers to have one single source of truth when it comes to ensuring the people who need to be vaccinated within their workforce are, and at the right times.

Employers can create custom vaccination requirements, including expiration rules and allow upload of vaccination proof, automate communication to relevant employees, prevent people from being rostered on if they don’t meet vaccination requirements, access a single view of employee vaccination status and collect vaccine status and proof from new employees during onboarding.

The Humanforce solution also supports contact tracing reporting among employees, should there be a positive COVID-19 case occur within the workplace. This helps employers to identify and report any workers who are contacts of a positive case.

According to Humanforce CEO, Clayton Pyne said the challenge for workplaces introducing vaccine policies is how they can effectively communicate, enforce and track policies with their employees.

“An automated workforce management solution can help to streamline this process and ensure compliance, which is important when dealing with such a high priority health issue affecting the safety of the entire workplace and wider community,” he said.

“Given there is a strong desire among casual workers to complete their shifts in safe environments where those around them are vaccinated, the onus is on employers to formulate and communicate clear vaccination policies for the future.”
