In May 2021, we published the first installment of our Office Re-Entry Index, where we surveyed 350 Chief Executive Officers, Chief Operating Officers, and Human Resources and Finance leaders on sentiments and plans for returning to the office. Since, we’ve seen COVID-19 infection rates plummet with 65% of Americans having been vaccinated, and the CDC removing several key precautions, such as restricted capacities and mask mandates for those who are vaccinated. With that, we re-surveyed more than 350 company leaders in June 2021 to understand where their re-entry plans stood, and what has shifted.
One trend we found was office re-entry dates for many businesses have moved up or become solidified for the first time since our last survey, as 74% of businesses now report they will be back in the office by fall 2021, compared to 49% reporting that timeline back in May.
Many businesses will soon be putting their office re-entry planning into practice, deciding who to bring back to the office when, and implementing strategies to keep employees safe, engaged and productive.
Download our Office Re-Entry Index: Volume II, which includes comparison data between the two surveys, with resources and suggestions for communicating with staff, legal considerations for mask and vaccination policies, information on timelines and strategies for office re-entry, considerations for a hybrid workforce, and more.
