Workers Outline Their Concerns As They Return To Offices

Share post:

A recent survey by Envoy outlined some concerns workers have when they return to the office.

In the study of 1,000 full-time employees in the U.S. who work at least one day a week from the office, 43% of respondents expressed concerns about the exposure to COVID-19 and its variants, while 30% expressed concerns about dealing with non-vaccinated employees. 30% of respondents also expressed concerns about travel time and costs, and 29% expressed concerns about limited flexibility for personal activities.

The report also shows that while 45% of respondents had no choice about returning to the office, 70% preferred a hybrid work option and only 12% preferred to work remotely.

Larry Gadea, CEO and founder of Envoy noted that companies planning a return to “business as usual” will fail, and if companies want employees back in the office, they have to earn it.

“COVID isn’t going anywhere — people need to know that their health is the top priority,” he said. “Leaders need to ask the hard questions about what’s working and what’s not, and then begin experimenting with technology solutions that make the work experience better.”

Envoy specializes in developing office management software for checking in visitors and reserving workspaces
