Ovolo Group ANZ Managing Director Dave Baswal says the goal for his proposed ‘vax pact’ is to get the Ovolo team fully vaccinated “by the end of this year”.
Mr Baswal introduced the ‘vax pact’ in a pledge to encourage his employees to get fully vaccinated, while also rewarding vaccinated guests.
He said he is “aiming” to get the Ovolo team vaccinated with their first dose by the end of October and the program allows “flexibility” to assist in achieving this goal.
“Flexible about providing any annual leaves, sick leaves, time off shifts, the investment of out-of-pocket expenses, any other incentives to make it happen,” Mr Baswal told Sky News Australia.
“The majority of the work is one on one discussions with the team to ensure that they understand what it means about vaccination and the impact of it on hospitality businesses overall and their life and wellbeing.”
Mr Baswal also said the take up of the initiative has been “really good”.
