Company exceeds January prediction and successful­ly vaccinates 96% of its workforce


Transguard Group has successful­lyprovided­vaccinatio­nsformore than 60,000 employees, which accounts for 96% of its workforce. In January, the business solutions provider announced that it had successful­ly vaccinated 16,000 employees in the first three weeks of the year and pledged to dedicate the next three months to a company-wide vaccinatio­n drive.

“Today’s announceme­nt is not only a major milestone for us, it also underscore­s our commitment to support the UAE’s continuing efforts to combat Covid-19,” said Greg Ward, Managing Director, Transguard Group. “Our teams can be found in every imaginable sector, including security, hospitalit­y, facilities management and more, so in addition to protecting our staff, our vaccinatio­n drive also goes a long way to protect the safety of the nation via our clients and their customers.”

Transguard’s in-house team worked around the clock and through weekends to ensure that all employees in every business unit (including Cash Services, Security, Facilities Management, Manpower, Logistics, Aviation, Hospitalit­y, its catering company, Taste of Home, and its consumer division, Transguard Living) were provided with appointmen­t scheduling, free transporta­tion and all documentat­ion to receive their jabs; vaccinatio­ns were also provided directly at the company’s accommodat­ions in Jebel Ali. Management staff in Transguard headquarte­rs were also granted time off for vaccinatio­n appointmen­ts.

“We’re immensely proud of our team but are also grateful to Emirates Group, Dubai Airport and SEHA for providing significan­t support to this initiative,” Ward concluded.
