Remote work will remain a fact of life for American business, according to a Survey by OperationsInc, a human resource consulting firm. Sixty percent of respondents with no remote program in place before the COVID-19 are rethinking their practices.

Only 18 percent, said they will scrap such programs once the crisis ends. The survey of 12 questions, collected from August 11 through August 18, had 300 participants representing a variety of organizations across the country. The survey found 43 percent of those survey had nt remote work program in place before the pandemic and only 7 percent offered the arrangements for their entire workforce. School scheduling has been a major factor in remote work plans. Sixty-five person of employers surveyed said they will offer flexibility for employees with school scheduling challenges while 18 percent were unsure of how they will manage the issues. Thirteen percent will work with employees on a case-by-cases basis and encourage them to do whatever possible to report back to the office with only 4 percent saying they will require employees to manage childcare issues and report back to the office as usual. OperationsInc found 19 percent of businesses have complaints about employee or visitor behavior that an employer has deemed risky or outside of compliance standards set by the employer. The sponsor said this represents a high percentage since few of those surveyed have a full team in their offices. Sixty-percent of employers have guidelines for employees returning from a COVID-19 “hotspot”.
