It doesn't really seem to make a lot of sense. But then, there are a lot of things in the world which don't.
1) Vaccination seems to still (with Delta and all) significantly reduce the chances of serious symptoms and/or hospitalization. Hospitalization is not
good for the company because it means the employee is missing a lot of work. Depending on the circumstances, this could mean sick pay. It could also
mean increased medical insurance premiums. It certainly means staffing problems. Testing has no effect on this.
2) Testing can also reduce the chances of infection spreading through the company because presumably a positive test would result in isolation. So the
same principle applies.
On the other hand, it is known that vaccination is no guarantee that one will not transmit the virus to others.
On the other hand, go back to 1). If someone is infected and they are vaccinated, chances are greater that the infection won't be as severe.
I suppose that testing for everyone would be best and arouse less cause for dissent.
