More than two-thirds (67%) of organizations plan to resume, or have already resumed, “normal” operations by end of summer. This is a key takeaway from The Back to Work Playbook survey conducted by WorldatWork and HALO Recognition.
Other key findings include:
- The primary focus for return to work planning is on practices to ensure the safety and health of employees, with nearly one third planning to implement employee reengagement initiatives.
- Nearly two-thirds (63%) of organizations will provide employees with PPE; 28% are not sure and 9% will not.
- Remote working arrangements and flexible work schedules are here to stay, particularly for employees with children: half (50%) of organizations are permanently allowing some employees to work remotely and for employees with children, 81% of organizations are allowing them to continue working remotely and 73% are offering flexible work schedules.
