Only 33% of companies are taking vaccination as one of the requisites for resuming offices, according to the survey by professional services firm Aon shared exclusively with ET. In comparison, 60% of respondents said they will look at what their employees want before making a decision, and 74% said they will consider government statistics on Covid-19 cases.
“It is interesting to note that a large number of companies will understand and gauge employee preference before charting out a safe plan to return workers onsite,” said Roopank Chaudhary, partner and chief commercial officer at Aon India.
“This is in line with a large number of companies adopting flexible workplace models even post-pandemic.”
The survey covered 217 companies that have a large part of their workforce in India, including 158 firms with global revenue of at least $500 million and up to $20 billion.
, , Deloitte, Publicis Sapient, and Titan Industries among others said getting employees vaccinated is a priority but not a prerequisite.
