(Webster, NY) (September 9, 2021) – MSM, a leading brand experiential agency specializing in face-to-face tradeshows and events, announced today that after asking all employees to be fully vaccinated, they were able to become 100% VAX’d in no time! “Our core values make us a family that cares about one another. To this end we do whatever is necessary to ensure the health of our team members, their families, our clients and all of those we come in contact with,” says MSM’s Founder/CEO Donna Shultz.
Given the nature of our industry and the impact of the Delta variant, we are taking additional steps to continue to prioritize the health and safety of our employees. We have always followed recommendations provided by the New York State Health Commissioner and other state and federal health experts. We need to do more. We must now act again to stop the spread.
With NYS strongly urging private businesses to implement vaccinated-only policies, MSM initially started by incenting all employees who were vaccinated with a gift card. After a few months and being so close to that 100% participation, the Leadership team made the decision to require all employees to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated by October 1st (unless they have an approved exemption). Since our core values talk about our family and the industry, it was an easy discussion. This new mandate includes all new hires and vendors that are entering the building.
“Our industry is shutting down again due to the Delta Variant and we need to do everything we can to encourage others to get the vaccine – as it is in the best interest of all of us” adds Laurie Kamal, President/CFO.
We encourage others in our industry to follow our lead, and maybe together we can all move the needle.
