How covid-19 affects the workplace
Back to Work Survey
Whether you’re just starting your re-entry plan or people are fully back in the workplace, new insights from DORIS Research can empower you to make a successful return.
Our anonymous survey included 1,138 stakeholders from 27 states across the U.S. plus 1 Canadian Province and 21 industries. No one demographic group feels fully ready to return to the workplace, and there are clear best practices for leadership to follow when creating their plan for re-entry.
Lack of childcare is one of the top limitations to returning to work.
In a response to an open-ended question, 14% of respondents listed taking care of their children as a limitation.
Etiquette around shared resources is the most important sanitation measure workplaces can implement.
Surface cleaning and physical distancing were ranked as the next two most important.
People without a dedicated workspace at home are less satisfied with their ability to collaborate.
Those working from spaces like kitchens, bedrooms, and living rooms less satisfied with their setup and collaboration.
When you go back, we’ve got your back.
I'm not sure when or who is moving back in , does this still apply?
We already know when we're moving back in, does this still apply?
How long does this last?
Because this is a monthly subscription package, the short answer is: as long as you want! However, we do recommend at least 6 months of engagement to fully cover the journey to a new norm in the age of COVID-19.
What happens when?
Throughout Revitalization, your organization will work with a dedicated Revitalization Coach. This person will be responsible for ensuring that everything included in your package happens at the right time. Because so much is changing every day, we know it’s not always practical to plan too far ahead. However, your dedicated Revitalization Coach will bring their expertise to the table and make sure the timing for your communications, workshops, events, or whatever else happens at the right time for your people.
