Across the world communities are uniting and working together as we look towards COVID-19 recovery.
To protect those we love, Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia and much of the world have needed to go into a number of lockdowns while we waited for our turn to be vaccinated.
Now, getting as many people as possible vaccinated is an important step to gain more protection against the virus, and to protect the people we love.
As an education group, with over 1,000 employees and a 14,000+ learning community of domestic and international learners, UP Education would like to play its part in the collective effort of ending the pandemic by supporting as many of our people to get vaccinated.
To do this, we are excited to be launching a group-wide employee initiative: Roll up your Sleeves.
|How it works|
1. All staff within the UP Education Group who get fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before 17 December 2021 will receive a $100. This can be spent in your local community, taking your family out for dinner, or simply to treat yourself. It’s up to you.
2. Alternatively, you can choose to donate the $100. This will become a $200 charitable donation, as for every dollar donated, UP Education will match it.
3. To be eligible, please send relevant proof of your two vaccinations to the People Team – firstname.lastname@example.org*. This can include:
4. Once this is received and processed by the People Team, the $200 donation or $100 Prepaid Gift Mastercard will be processed.
