COLUMBIA, Mo., Aug. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- StorageMart, the largest family-operated self storage company in the world, is offering a $100.00 cash incentive to any U.S. employee that can provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination status.

In 2020, StorageMart temporarily raised the hourly wage of our essential staff who helped keep doors open. There was an additional global pay bonus to every employee in StorageMart.
"Stopping the virus takes everyone and the vaccine is a safe and effective tool to help us do that. The COVID-19 vaccine is now widely available, and we want to encourage everyone who can get it to do so," said Cris Burnam, CEO at StorageMart.
Burnam continued by challenging his industry peers to rise to the occasion, "Our employees carried our industry through a tough time. I challenge every self-storage operator to follow suit and incentivize their teams to become fully vaccinated against this virus."
