Kiko’s CEO: “No to free tampons, those who decide not to get vaccinated must pay”
“Those who choose not to get vaccinated must pay the costs of this decision, so we will not finance the tampons to our employees”: said Cristina Scocchia, CEO of the cosmetics company Kiko during the television broadcast Half past eight, broadcast on La7 on the evening of Tuesday 13 October.
Guest of the program led by Lilli Gruber, which spoke of the compulsory Green Pass for all public and private workers in force starting from Friday 15 October, the entrepreneur said: “We are for a serious and rigorous application of the Green Pass in the workplace “.
“As an employer, I have a duty to ensure the health and safety of all my employees, vaccinated and unvaccinated, and today the best way to ensure the safety of my employees is to apply the Green Pass rules without hesitation, without delays and without discounts “.
“So – added the managing director of the cosmetics company which has 15% of unvaccinated workers – from Friday all my 2500 employees will have to present the Green Pass. We will not carry out random checks, but punctual checks. Those who do not have the Green Pass will have to go home and will be suspended “.
“It is obvious that there will be difficulties especially in the first few days, but the decree came into force on 21 September, so we were given 3 weeks to organize ourselves”.
“The Green Pass and its correct application are essential to get out of this pandemic. So we will continue along this path despite the difficulties ”.
Cristina Scocchia, then, explains why she is not in favor of funding tampons for those employees who have not vaccinated themselves: “We are not making it an economic issue, but a matter of principle. We are in favor of the Green Pass because we are in favor of vaccination ”.
“It is obvious that in our country, since there is no vaccination obligation, everyone must be free not to get vaccinated if they don’t want to get vaccinated. But then we believe it is right that those who decide not to get vaccinated should pay the costs of this decision. And neither the company nor the community should bear this cost ”.
