FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 20, 2021 — Scottsdale, Ariz. – Sixty percent of employees are currently working remotely, and 76% indicate they would like to continue in that capacity after the pandemic. However, employers anticipate that 34% of employees will continue working remotely after the pandemic setting up possible future tension between organizations and their workforces. Also, thirty-two percent of employees state they would not return to work and look for a new job if they cannot work remotely. These findings are in the “WorldatWork COVID-19 Employer Plans and Employee Perceptions” survey, conducted in partnership with SalesGlobe. The comprehensive survey, a follow-up to April 2020’s “COVID-19 Employer Response Survey” covers vaccine policies/incentives, hazard pay, financial impact/forecasting, business travel, remote work, investment in software solutions, work-from-home expense reimbursements, worker protections, employee recruitment, PTO policies, and vacation stances, among other topics.

In addition, 1,418 full-time business professionals in the U.S. responded to employee view questions via MarketCube, an online panel, and via SalesGlobe.
