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.
Who’s on CPG’s front line? There are 1.2 million working in manufacturing, 360,000 in trucking and transportation and 142,000 in facility maintenance.
It has met that demand with a dedicated workforce, made up of 1.7 million essential employees who have taken on extra hours and shifts to ensure consumers have what they need.
Consumer Brands is committed to keeping the industry informed on the latest guidance, engagement opportunities and thought leadership as the vaccine rollout continues.
Here’s what CPG leaders can do help protect their workforce, better coordinate with state and local partners and promote wide adoption of the vaccine.
