Citigroup’s unvaccinated staff members in the United States have rushed to get shots — or request exemptions — just before its coronavirus vaccination requirement kicks in.
The bank reached 99 percent compliance with its mandate before a Friday deadline, Sara Wechter, the bank’s head of human resources, wrote on LinkedIn on Thursday. According to a person familiar to the policies, that was an increase from 90 percent on January 7.
These figures exclude branch workers who were given more time to comply, employees who received religious or medical accommodations, and those who live outside states that allow vaccine mandates.
“Going into the last day, we expect the number of employees who have not complied will decrease even further,” Ms. Wechter wrote.
