If you simply want to join the insurance groups Zurich and Swiss Re, you have to be vaccinated. If an employee cannot show a certificate, the personal access badge will be turned off.
At both companies, entry to the workplace is regulated by an electronic ID card. If you cannot prove that you have been vaccinated or recovered, the badge will be limited. “The duration of the activation is linked to the expiry date of the Covid certificate,” explains Swiss Re spokesman Chris Onuoha to the “Tages-Anzeiger”.

Home office or activation for days
The vaccination and recovery give you access to the workplace for several months. But anyone who shows a Covid certificate that proves a test is only allowed to go to the office for the period of validity of the test. Untested you stand in front of a locked door – and have to work from home.
If that is impossible, Swiss Re offers on-site testing, the spokesman said.
Zurich also relies on the storage of employee badges. This is especially true for the headquarters on Mythenquai. “The duration of the valid certificate can be voluntarily deposited on the access badge of the employees at the group headquarters”, Zurich spokesman Thomas Baer told the newspaper.
And further: “Employees who do not want to save the duration of the certificate on their badge will be activated for one day after they have checked the certificate when they enter the building.” (euc)
