Unilever Selects Cority to Bring Greater Visibility and Efficiency to COVID-19 Response and Recovery
Fast-moving consumer goods leader deploys Cority’s purpose-built Occupational Health and COVID-19 SaaS solutions to aid its pandemic response and streamline employee health management
Toronto, ON -- Cority, the most trusted provider of environmental, health, safety, and quality (EHSQ) management software today announced that Unilever, one of the world’s leading consumer goods companies, has chosen Cority to help support employee health management, control risk of an outbreak, streamline return to work, and ensure business continuity through the COVID-19 pandemic in the US and Canada.
To aid the organization’s pandemic response and simplify health status reporting, Unilever deployed Cority’s Occupational Health and COVID-19 Workplace Health and Continuity SaaS solutions. Leveraging Cority, Unilever’s occupational health team is able to conduct rapid employee health assessments, manage cases, and automate daily health status reports both to corporate headquarters as well as operations site and line managers for greater visibility and efficiency.
“The wellbeing of our workforce is our top priority,” said Dr. Tonya Walker, US Chief Medical Officer, Unilever. “Unilever has been diligent in ensuring the health and safety of our employees during COVID-19 – especially those on the frontline of our operations. Now we are taking further proactive measures by partnering with Cority to help us continue to respond, ensuring we have the most accurate real-time data and reporting and enable our clinicians to focus on employee health programs and effectively manage risk rather than managing spreadsheets.”
Designed by Cority’s certified occupational health and safety experts, the purpose-built COVID-19 Workplace Health and Continuity solution provides a centralized view of all health data related to COVID-19 exposures in a single location, enabling enterprises to ensure an efficient return to work and business resumption process while ensuring employee health and safety are protected. Occupational health and safety practitioners can quickly conduct employee health screenings, manage exposure cases, easily track who’s off, schedule follow-up testing, and build return to work plans to support a safe and healthy recovery. Cority’s integrated workflows, enhanced analytics, and automated reports streamline communication across the enterprise, ensuring front-line workers are updated, engaged, and confident with the steps being taken to control COVID-19 and keep them safe at work.
“We are proud to partner with an organization like Unilever that puts the health and wellbeing of its employees first,” said Mark Wallace, CEO, Cority. “Unilever will now have a single source for employee health data, ensuring the company can make the most informed health and safety decisions possible for its workforce so employees can continue to safely manufacture essential items needed during the pandemic like food, soap, and cleaning and sanitization products.”
