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.
