I won't make my company enforce vaccine mandates. CEOs should trust their employees.

My company won’t institute or enforce a vaccine mandate, no matter what form it takes.

Maybe cities will demand that businesses require the jab, like New York City did on Monday. Maybe the Biden administration will somehow rescue its own nationwide mandate, which a federal court has blocked. Maybe other businesses will pressure their peers to join them in forcing vaccines on workers. Regardless, I can’t justify such a big intrusion into my team’s private lives. And I’m convinced that respecting the rights of my 300-plus employees is best for everyone involved.

Am I taking sides in a “war on science?” Hardly.
