Organizations are working to ensure a smooth transition back to the workplace.
What are key considerations in deciding when to bring employees back to the workplace?
Fealy First, employers should consider workforce segmentation to determine which positions can effectively work remotely versus those that require a return to the office or work site. Second, employers should perform workforce sentiment analysis to gain insight into their employees’ comfort levels with a physical return. For instance, our research shows that employees do want to return to the office in some capacity for social connection and collaboration with colleagues. These insights can then help organizations determine if they should offer an option to opt out from returning, and remain working from home.
