The team at Associated Food Stores is again navigating another winter season, which brings with it an array of health concerns ranging from the common cold to more serious issues like RSV and the ongoing challenges of COVID-19. 

In response to these health challenges, the team is not only encouraged to take proactive steps like getting vaccinated against the flu, RSV, and COVID-19 but is also reminded to be cautious and sensitive to others. Team members are urged to follow best practices such as washing hands, cleaning and disinfecting surfaces and working remotely when feeling unwell, provided their responsibilities allow for such flexibility. Team members should also utilize sick leave if they become sick. This encouragement aligns with the company’s commitment to prioritizing the health and safety of the team. 

To support and incentivize vaccination and other wellness efforts, the company continues to offer a range of benefits, including tangible rewards. Incentives not only aim to enhance individual health but also underscores the collective effort required to foster a safe and supportive workplace. More information can be found on Bridge here. 

The AFS team continues to prove its dedication and resilience. Team members are encouraged to take personal responsibility for their health and contribute to the overall well-being of the workplace. By actively engaging in health-conscious practices and considering remote work versus coming in sick, each team member plays a crucial role in creating an environment where everyone can thrive.
