Workday launches COVID-19 vaccine management solution

Workday has announced a COVID-19 vaccine management solution that provides HR and business leaders with the insights needed to help ensure the health and safety of remote and on-site workers.

The vaccine management solution expands on Workday’s ‘return to workplace’ offering and helps companies to securely access worker immunisation insight, plan return to workplace scenarios, support worker wellbeing and establish new operating models to adapt as vaccines become available. Customers also have the configurability to control and securely manage the data and protect their employees’ privacy.

Commenting on the initiative, Pete Schlampp, Workday executive vice president of product development, said: “As the core HR system for some of the world’s largest companies — and with a customer community representing more than 45 million workers — we’re in a unique position to help organizations navigate the changing world of work. We understand the complexity that comes with exploring the safest way to return to the workplace, which is why we’re doubling down on delivering innovative solutions like vaccine management that truly support customers’ evolving needs so that they’re prepared and focused on what matters most — their people.”

Ashley Goldsmith, Workday chief people officer, added: “On the heels of one of the most challenging years, HR leaders are now working to address the many twists and turns of vaccine management and a safe return to work. It’s not a one-size-fits-all as we look to scenario plan and adopt the right approaches to each of our office openings based on vaccine protocols and progress with vaccine distribution. Having this unified data where and when we need it is a key component in prioritizing our employees — our number one core value — and their well-being during such a critical time.”
