SKODA AUTO goes far beyond mandatory government measures in the fight against COVID-19 – tests and vaccination preparations underway
“We are ready: The vaccination centres at our Czech sites are ready to vaccinate the ŠKODA workforce against COVID-19. As soon as the vaccine becomes available, we will get started – quickly, flexibly and free of charge for all employees. I would like to thank Jaroslav Povšík for the constructive and close cooperation. Thanks to our comprehensive protective measures, only one in ten COVID-19 infections among our employees have been traced back to the work environment. This shows that it is currently safer at ŠKODA AUTO than in the surrounding area,” explains Thomas Schäfer, CEO of ŠKODA AUTO.
“The cooperation between the company and the union has been very close all year. Each day, we jointly address the comments we receive from the entire workforce and actively involve our staff in dealing with the pandemic. One reason we have been so successful is that we genuinely look into all the comments we receive, both negative and positive, and we are getting more and more positive feedback. We are confident that our employees will adopt this way of tackling the pandemic – based on the experience they have gained at ŠKODA AUTO as well as the habits they have acquired here – in their private and public lives. By doing so, they are doing their part to alleviate this very difficult situation in the Czech Republic,” adds Jaroslav Povšík, Chairman of the Works Council of the KOVO trade union.
