The U.S. regulatory approval of Pfizer Inc.’s shot last month has prompted a growing number of employers to adopt mandates as the highly contagious delta variant spreads. Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Walmart Inc., McDonald’s Corp. and Walt Disney Co. are among companies requiring at least some employees get vaccinated before going to their workplaces.
“Companies have been doing a really good job of making it easy to be vaccinated,” said Jeff Levin-Scherz, managing director of health and benefits at Willis Towers Watson. “Employers are now thinking, ‘How can we make it difficult for people not to be vaccinated?'”
