MakeShift Helps North American Businesses Navigate Vaccine Mandates Through In-App Tracking of Staff COVID-19 Vaccination Status
CALGARY, Alberta—MakeShift, an employee scheduling app for multiple industries, including healthcare, retail, restaurant, and professional services has recently added features to facilitate the tracking of self-reported employee COVID-19 vaccination status.
On September 9th the Biden administration announced that private companies with more than 100 employees and federal agencies must ensure that their employees are vaccinated or regularly tested. HR leaders across the US now have the added burden of accurately monitoring their employees’ immunization status.
With a large number of US clients, MakeShift has updated its existing features to facilitate the tracking of COVID-19 vaccination records giving HR managers the tools needed to improve workforce planning, ensure business continuity, and keep customers safe.
MakeShift is also working with businesses in its home province of Alberta where the government recently announced new regulations and a pending vaccine passport program.
Additionally, the MakeShift app is easing the transition to the hybrid workforce. By allowing staff to indicate when they would like to come in to work as well as see who is in the office and who is remote, MakeShift lets HR leaders effectively manage facility occupancy rates and maximize in-person interaction.
“When you look at the North American market, small and medium sized enterprises represent over 90% of businesses. Many of these organizations suffered greatly due to COVID-19. Now as these businesses start rebounding and look to hire and retain employees, new requirements are being put on them every other day. We want to make sure we give them the tools they need to bring their people back safely and keep their business running,” said Adam Greenberg, CEO, MakeShift.
MakeShift is providing free system set-up and extended trials to businesses that need a scheduling solution to address the latest COVID-19 related requirements.
