Transguard Group Vaccinates 16,000 Employees

Greg Ward, Managing Director, Transguard Group

Citing a massive, company-wide effort, Transguard Group today announced that 16,000 of its employees across every division of the company have already received the first dose of the vaccine, including Cash Services, Security, Facilities Management, Manpower, Logistics, Aviation, Hospitality, its catering company, Taste of Home, and its consumer division, Transguard Living. The business solutions provider began its vaccination programme at the beginning of January.

“The safety of our employees and customers is our top priority, which is why our COVID vaccination drive is crucial,” explains Greg Ward, Managing Director, Transguard Group. “We have spared no time or resources in supporting the UAE’s vaccination efforts and we are pleased with the results of these first few weeks of 2021.”

Many employees took the vaccine of their own initiative, including members of Transguard’s senior leadership team. In addition, an internal team is dedicated to scheduling appointments for any employee who wants to be vaccinated, with Transguard’s Transportation division arranging free transport for site-based staff to and from medical facilities. Meanwhile, employees in headquarters are given time off for vaccination appointments.

“A year ago we redoubled our efforts to support the UAE through the first ravages of the global pandemic. Transguard’s vaccination drive is key to our on-going support for the nation and we are proud of what we’ve accomplished so far,” Ward concluded.

Transguard anticipates that at least 95% of its employees will be fully vaccinated by the end of March 2021.
