Avison Young introduces vaccine requirement for North American staff

Avison Young introduces vaccine requirement for North American staff September 10, 2021

At Avison Young, we have always prioritized protecting the physical and mental wellness of our teams and families. Now, 18 months into the pandemic, one of the most powerful tools we have to do that is vaccines. That is why, beginning October 31, all Avison Young North American staff in Canada and the United States are required to be fully vaccinated to work within any of our offices and client premises or present regular evidence of a negative test. We believe it is our duty to provide and maintain a workplace that is free of known hazards and we are being asked by our clients to do the same. In other areas of the world where we operate but where vaccine requirements are restricted, we continue to encourage all staff who are able to get vaccinated.

Avison Young creates real economic, social and environmental value as a global real estate advisor, powered by people. As a private company, our clients collaborate with an empowered partner who is invested in their success. Our integrated talent realizes the full potential of real estate by using global intelligence platforms that provide clients with insights and advantage. Together, we can create healthy, productive workplaces for employees, cities that are centers for prosperity for their citizens, and built spaces and places that create a net benefit to the economy, the environment and the community.
