Raine & Horne chairman urges real estate industry to get vaccinated

AUGUST 10, 2021

Sydney, NSW (10 August 2021) Leading property group Raine & Horne supports the push by governments around Australia to lift vaccination rates by encouraging members of the real estate industry to get immunised. 

The Federal Government, for example, wants 70% of Australians aged over 16 vaccinated before the end of the year[i]].

Raine & Horne Executive Chairman Angus Raine said, “As an industry, we need to support the government’s messages about the need to get vaccinated.

“Yet the messages about the value of vaccination are taking time to sink in, so any incentives that may encourage real estate professionals to get vaccinated should be considered. 

“This could be something as simple as a gift voucher or a day off in lieu. 

“As a highly consumer-oriented industry, we always put our clients’ best interests first and as such real estate principals could look at ways to incentivise their teams to get immunised.”
