CPG and the COVID-19 Vaccine
Protecting the Workforce
As manufacturers of products critical to Americans’ ability to stay home, the CPG industry has contended with incredible demand for more than 18 months.
It has met that demand with a dedicated workforce, made up of millions of employees who have taken on extra hours and shifts to ensure consumers have what they need.
CPG companies have invested heavily in measures to ensure the safety of its employees, from installing new air filtration and physical barriers to reconfiguring facilities to allow for social distancing. They’ve also heavily promoted vaccine access for their workforce and are partnering with the federal government to comply with the vaccine mandate.
Consumer Brands is committed to keeping the industry informed on the latest guidance, engagement opportunities and thought leadership as the vaccine rollout continues.
Vaccine Mandate Clarity
Consumer Brands has urged the Biden administration to accelerate federal guidelines and clarify how businesses are expected to implement the COVID-19 Action Plan. In a letter to the White House Consumer Brands outlined some of the most critical questions that need answers immediately — not in the weeks federal agencies have signaled it may take or in the months industry has experienced throughout the pandemic.
The flood of feedback received from CPG companies — including over 50 unique questions needing clarification — confirms the pressing need for guidance from federal agencies on how the mandate will affect business operations and employees.
Here’s what CPG leaders can do help protect their workforce, better coordinate with state and local partners and promote access to the vaccine.
