Bloomberg implements US vaccine mandate by Dec. 1
Ken Cooper, global head of human resources at Bloomberg LP, sent out the following to the staff on Monday:
To the Bloomberg team in the U.S.:
Thank you for helping to keep our company strong and our workplace safe as we continue fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. Since our last update, we now have nearly 95% of our U.S. colleagues fully vaccinated, and our positive rate through on-site testing remains under 0.1%.
As the pandemic has continued to progress, what has become abundantly clear is that everyone is safer when everyone is vaccinated. With this in mind, and in light of federal requirements and the science behind them, we are implementing a vaccine requirement across our U.S. offices. This requirement will apply to all U.S.-based personnel, with the exception of those unable to get vaccinated for medical reasons, or because of religious objections.
Please ensure that you are fully vaccinated and that your full vaccination record is up-to-date in NTFY <GO> by December 1, or provide the information directly to HR. If you are seeking a medical or religious exemption, or if you have any other questions, please enter a ticket via SDSK ADD 29630 <GO>.
As a firm, we have no greater responsibility to our workforce than to ensure our safety when in our offices. Thank you for everything you are doing to help keep us safe.
