The editor of eCCO Magazine would like to draw readers’ attention to the study, published by the Harris Poll and the Institute for Public Relations. STUDY: EMPLOYEE EXPECTATIONS ARE CHANGING DUE TO COVID-19
The Harris Poll and the Institute for Public Relations surveyed 831 U.S. adults employed full time, from May 15 to May 17, to find out how they feel about returning to work and what safeguards they would like employers to put into place.
Non-essential employees want to return to the office only when they feel comfortable doing so and most of them want staggered returns. As more companies are planning for the return to work, employees say their safety should be top-of-mind for their employers. Communicating effectively, outlining safety precautions, and ensuring enforcement of guidelines will be critical as will be making sure employees have access to protections, such as sanitizers, PPEs, and physical barriers.
The COVID-19 pandemic may also have implications for the future of the open office concept. Safety also significantly influenced the likelihood employees would support legislative legal protections for companies. Companies who demonstrate accountability for employees were more likely to find support for legal protections as were companies who are honest and open about their shortcomings.
