In April and May, numerous leaders declared that we must “get people back to work.” But the reality is that people have been working quite successfully, from home. How can organisations build on their success so far? This research explores how employees have fared since they began working virtually.
Approximately half of our respondents are women, and half are men; they hail from 43 states; nearly half are married; and more than a third have children. About 40% hold management positions. We have been asking them about their job satisfaction, work engagement, perceptions of their own performance, conflicts with colleagues, stress, negative emotions, and current living situation, among other questions.
