Tyson joins growing list of companies hiring chief medical officers amid pandemic

Peter Cappelli of the Wharton School commented on the hiring of in-house medical professionals by companies. “I think it’s smart. Companies are thinking about bringing more employees back to work. They are concerned about getting sued by employees, so they need credible advice,” he said. “They also want to assure employees—maybe customers in some cases as well—that what they are doing is safe. A chief medical officer looks credible, more so than getting advice from outside consultants.”
