In an effort to assist businesses with safely returning employees to the workplace, Burlington-based LabCorp (NYSE: LH) has embarked on a partnership with a Chicago-based commercial real estate services firm JLL.
Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. (JLL) clients will now have access to a full suite of employee wellness options including temperature and symptom screening, polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR) testing for those exhibiting symptoms and serology testing to identify antibodies in persons previously infected with the virus.
Flu vaccines and biometric screenings will also be offered as part of the partnership.
“More than ever, employees and companies are focused on health and safety in the work environment,” said Cynthia Kantor, JLL chief product officer.
“We’re proud to utilize LabCorp Employer Services to help occupiers in the U.S. re-open their spaces, enhance the confidence of their employees, and foster an enduring culture of health and well-being.”
JLL is a Fortune 500 company with annual revenue of $18.0 billion. The firm operates in more than 80 countries and, as of March 31, employs a global workforce of more than 94,000.
LabCorp is among the Triad’s largest employers.
The company has been at the forefront of the pandemic response on a local, national and global scale innovating testing procedures and analyzing hundreds of thousands of tests per day since Covid-19 reached the U.S. in March.
As those efforts continue, LabCorp has also placed an emphasis on its Employer Services operations to assist businesses with reopening safely and smartly.
“Getting people back to work safely and effectively requires a comprehensive suite of health and testing services that are customized to fit the specific needs of each company,” said Brian Caveney, chief medical officer and president of LabCorp Diagnostics.
“We look forward to working with JLL, a leading professional services firm that specializes in real estate and investment management, and helping their clients develop and execute their workplace re-entry strategies.”
