How SAP SuccessFactors Visa and Permits Management can help the healthcare industry manage employee vaccinations
Flu season is here during a volatile year for healthcare. To keep employees and their loved ones safe, employers are encouraging employees to get the influenza vaccine. For front-line healthcare workers, however, getting the influenza vaccine is not only encouraged, but required for employment. To help prevent a collision between the flu and COVID-19 in the workplace, employers will need to know how to manage the process of ensuring that their employees have the proper health clearances – whether it be vaccinations, immunizations, or health certificates.
How does SAP SuccessFactors Visa and Permits Management work?
SAP SuccessFactors Visa and Permits Management’s flexible global framework for managing workforce credentials can help you design auditable business processes for employee influenza vaccinations that can be adapted to world health and local disease control guidelines to reduce risk and exposure in the workplace.
For example, employees can submit proof as well as the costs incurred for the vaccination to their employer. An employee can also have the option to submit an exemption. In addition, automated notifications can be sent to employees to ensure that the influenza vaccinations are completed and renewed on time. The HR administrator (or the person you designate as the team leader or facility vaccination coordinator responsible for each group of employees) can also submit the information on behalf of the employee.
Upon receiving the completed vaccination form from an employee, the HR administrator can determine whether any paid-time off needs to be processed in the HR system as in some cases for hourly employees. Once the HR administrator has verified the proof of vaccination and approved the cost for payroll reimbursement, the security team can activate the employee’s security badge for access to the company’s facilities. Then the HR administrator can finalize the vaccination certificate to ensure compliance with industry and company guidelines.
Furthermore, the solution’s real-time reporting tools and dashboard enable executives to monitor the end-to-end process, track costs, identify areas of risk, and make data-driven decisions to keep employees safe.
With SAP SuccessFactors Visa and Permits Management, employers can ensure that employee health information is stored securely and separately from the employee’s personnel files to comply with data privacy and anti-discrimination laws, such as HIPAA and ADA.
