We’re seeing real progress in the fight against COVID-19.
Numbers are “plummeting” in many parts of the country, and there is growing hope that widespread vaccinations could, finally, help bring this horrific pandemic to an end. Unfortunately, skepticism about the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine remains surprisingly high.
New research from The Conference Board finds that one in five employees have reservations about whether or not they’ll get the shot. The survey also revealed a stark divide of opinion between senior- and junior-level employees. Other findings include:
- Lower-ranking employees are far more uncertain about taking the vaccine than senior leaders.
- 45% of companies have not communicated a vaccination policy.
- 44% say plans to reopen the workplace are unknown.
- 28% of respondents say it will take seven to 12 months for their workplace to reopen.
- Men report comfort in returning to the workplace at two times the rate of women.
