Bringing employees back into the office following the lockdowns has proven to be an intimidating task for executives. Every employee has different levels of comfort regarding being around others during the ongoing pandemic, and individual circumstances can put some employees at higher risk than others. As cities, universities, and sporting events loosen restrictions on capacities and masking requirements; companies are faced with a tough challenge -- how do we bring back our employees, especially those who still have lingering worry about the pandemic?
Most companies have shown a desire to get back to work in person again. For instance, a recent survey done by Deloitte found that at least 89% of organizations plan to return to the workplace sometime in 2021. However, in another study done by Envoy of 1,000 workers in the U.S., 66% of respondents had concerns about going back. This shows an evident disconnect between the average employee and the decision-making executives regarding the future. Executives need their employees to feel as comfortable returning to work as they feel themselves, and technology can be of great help in closing this gap.
