The UK’s vaccination programme has begun, bringing with it a chance to end social distancing measures for good. Until then, we can keep safe by wearing masks, by respecting the 2m rule, and by taking care of hand hygiene — especially when returning to work. 

COVID and the workplace

A coronavirus outbreak can bring business to a standstill. And in offices where social distancing is hard, or in jobs that require close mixing with others, the risk of transmission is higher. 


As of January 2021, a certain group of businesses can remain open and in operation: essential retail, banks and other services, TV and film sets, to name a few. But should one or more workers become ill with COVID-19, the cost to your business could be huge.


Corporate COVID testing is one way to ensure the safety of your staff — booking healthcare professionals to conduct coronavirus tests at your workplace. Corporate COVID testing avoids the spread of infection at your company; protecting the health of your employees and, therefore, the health of your business, too. 


For many organisations, ongoing corporate testing will play a business-critical role throughout 2021.

What does corporate COVID testing involve?

Corporate COVID testing involves the mass testing of team members and employees. This can happen on-site or inside your office space, as professional healthcare workers will come to you to conduct the testing. 


If you can’t spare the room, some clinics — like Corona Test Centre — will provide a mobile van outside. On-site testing makes the entire process not only more convenient, but safer for your company as well. 

A range of COVID testing for all team sizes

With Corona Test Centre, as many as 750 employees can be tested per day — the whole process is done and dusted quickly, even with the biggest of corporate teams.


Our corporate COVID testing involves virus and antibody testing, so you can find out if anyone working at your company has, or has had, COVID-19 before they enter the workplace. 

PCR and Antibody testing administered by healthcare professionals

In general, corporate COVID testing involves a PCR and/or an Antibody test. While the PCR identifies which employees currently have coronavirus, the Antibody test helps you understand whether an employee previously had the virus or not.


People who are infected should be asked to go home and self-isolate right away — reducing the risk to their co-workers. Those who have had COVID-19 in the past could have some level of immunity to the virus. Learn more about COVID antibodies and immunity, in our blog post here.


Unlike self-tests or at-home tests, corporate COVID tests are administered by trained healthcare professionals. Corona Test Centre’s corporate testing programme provides accurate and fast results (98% for IgM/IgG Antibody testing and as much as 99.9% for PCR).

No long waiting times

As the old adage says: time is money. 


Thanks to the quick results, you won’t have to wait long to identify potential COVID-19 infections within your staff members. Book corporate Antibody tests, and you’ll have the results the same day. The results of our PCR tests will be with you within 1-2 days. 


What are the benefits of corporate COVID testing?

While your employees and team members are at work, it is your legal responsibility to ensure their health and safety. Corporate COVID testing allows you to safeguard staff from COVID-19 exposure, helps protect your employees from the virus and can bring commercial benefits to your company as well. 

Ensure the health of your employees and clients

Thanks to corporate testing, you can quickly detect potential COVID-19 infections within your staff and can make accurate decisions about sick leave, self-isolation and support. 


A coronavirus outbreak in your office is bad enough, but you don’t want to pass the virus onto your clients as well. Corporate testing provides the peace of mind you need, for business as usual.

Avoid disruptions to business operations

Responsible employers know the risk of COVID-19. That’s why they turn to the experts to keep their staff and clients safe. 


When your teams are happy and healthy, you can expect fewer sick days too — leading to higher productivity and less wasted time. This allows you to avoid disruptions to your business and its overall operations.

Create a safe work environment

Company culture is essential for motivation, productivity and employee satisfaction. By booking corporate testing, you show your teams how much you care. It’s quick and easy to organise, but the message you give across is clear: we prioritise your health and want a safe work environment for you all.

What are your options for corporate COVID testing?

Several clinics offer corporate COVID testing and employers have a large variety of services and prices to choose from. Usually, professional healthcare workers will do the testing on-site and companies can choose between PCR or Antibody tests (or a combination of both). 


Depending on the type of test, results are usually available the same day or within 1-2 days. 

Citydoc

Citydoc provides three different tests as part of their corporate COVID testing programme: 


  • The COVID-19 PCR test
