Mandated Vaccine Tracking & What It Means for the Post-Pandemic Workplace
The need for vaccine tracking has HR departments everywhere rehauling the way they handle employee relations in the workplace. Learn how LaborSoft helps.
In 2021, one overall theme that has become evident as the pandemic dust continues to settle is the need for companies to adapt and offer flexibility to employees. As a result, there has been a residual call-to-arms for HR departments everywhere to rehaul the way they handle employee relations and labor issues at work or from home.
Keeping a Pulse on Your Employees with an All-in-One Solution
What we can all agree on is how much has changed since March 2020, from working using a remote or hybrid model to ultimately trying to keep loved ones and ourselves clear and safe from COVID. However, what is still getting worked out in the aftermath of 2020 is how employers keep track of vaccines and learn to navigate how to enforce it in the workplace with the constant changing directives from the CDC and new compliance obligations for tracking COVID-specific or health-related information.
While many organizations created short-term workarounds to address the new laws and recommendations, LaborSoft’s all-in-one employee case management software was always there. Our clients can adapt the system to take on another function — namely, simplifying the vaccine tracking process. Utilizing a centralized interface, companies can configure and automate processes that are already set up within LaborSoft’s solution. Since LaborSoft’s tools are designed to meet a client’s unique requirements, they can be configured in a way that makes the most sense for YOUR company. It can also be enabled to generate reports that are insightful and can be at HR’s fingertips at the ready. This solution streamlines submitting vaccine information and provides HR with the analytics and business insights it needs to make informed decisions.
LaborSoft’s Employee Incident Tracker can record, track, and report on any employee incidents that impact your organization. This component can be utilized for vaccine tracking, as well as accommodation requests and exception tracking. It allows HR to access, view, and update specific case or personnel records. This makes inputting vaccine administration dates, the type of vaccine received, or even uploads of the employee’s COVID vaccination record simple. Then action items or notifications can be set, such as reminders for the employee and/or HR managers about upcoming vaccine appointments, PTO requests in relation to COVID-19, or accommodations that may be needed to put into place.
Maintaining Your Employees’ Health & Codifying Your Company’s Compliance
While employees may have different perspective on vaccines, the onus for tracking them is on the employer. With the new FMLA & FFCRA regulations, it behooves HR to take a closer look at compliance as it relates to vaccine tracking. The last thing you need when returning to work are operational bottlenecks and possible lawsuits, simply because your company lacked the flexibility to keep up with the times or violated compliance mandates.
Since the pandemic began, LaborSoft has continued to evolve to support new work conditions, including capturing employee health and wellness tracking. Embedded within a centralized repository, these powerful tools (and more) allow HR administrators to adapt to new trends and compliance requirements quickly and with confidence.
