Designer hotel collection Ovolo is introducing the ‘Vax Pact’ which the company says will not only make a pledge to encourage its employees to get vaccinated, it will also reward guests for ‘taking the jab’.

In Australia, Ovolo’s ‘Vax. Pact.’ initiative will pledge 100% of employees will have had their 1st vaccination by 31st October 2021 and 100% will have had 2nd vaccination by 31st December 2021.

According to Ovolo Group Founder and CEO, Girish Jhunjhnuwala, this commitment is there to ensure the safety of both our guests and employees alike, and ultimately see travel and hospitality return.

“Ovolo’s employees are its most valued assets, they are the heart and soul of delivering the unique Ovolo experience,” he said.

“The immediate future of tourism and hospitality depends on high vaccination rates, and as a business we have a responsibility to our industry to drive this – Vax. Pact. is the first step but, within our power, we will do whatever it takes!”

To further encourage the community to get vaccinated, soon to announce, Ovolo will offer incentives to those fully vaccinated guests who stay, drink and dine at any Ovolo in Australia, including dining offers, competitions and additional Ovolo Perks when they present their MyGov vaccination certificate.

In addition to this, the Ovolo OC/DC policy – Obsessive Commitment to Deep Cleaning – further protects guests and employees and was developed to bring a little F.U.N. (Fun. Unconventional. Never Boring) by incorporating musical undertones, in true Ovolo style.
