Us fund giant Vanguard Group has promised to reward each employee $1000 if they are vaccinated against novel coronavirus by October, according to people familiar with the matter.
The company will provide subsidies to all employees who can prove that they have been vaccinated, even if they have been vaccinated before the subsidy is proposed. A spokesman for Pioneer confirmed that the company was providing incentives, but did not disclose the amount.
"We will provide vaccine rewards to employees who provide novel coronavirus vaccination certificates," she said, adding that the company rewarded employees who "took the time to protect themselves, each other and our community by vaccination."
Earlier this year, Pioneer decided to use a hybrid approach, allowing most employees to work remotely on Mondays and Fridays. As employers across the country plan to return to their offices, they face the question of whether they need to be vaccinated, especially as Delta spreads in unvaccinated areas of the United States.
Pioneer's competitor BlackRock(BlackRock) recently adjusted its plan to ban unvaccinated employees from entering U. S. offices from July. The New York-based company requires employees to report their vaccinations by the end of June.
