A recent survey of human resources executives, conducted by global outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas, finds that companies are developing, implementing, and clarifying plans to bring employees back in-person.
But those plans are anything but uniform.
This chart, which lists various safety precautions, provides insight into steps companies are taking.
Findings are based on a survey of 201 human resources executives at companies of various sizes and industries nationwide.
Although the survey focuses on bringing employees back, findings have implications for recruiting and hiring. Many of these safety precautions are of interest to candidates as well.
Earlier in the pandemic, Appcast Research found that employers – particularly employers in certain industries – often included safety protocol information in job ads.
Going forward, especially for the near-term, this information will continue to resonate with job seekers.
Needless to say, remote work also became more common this past year.
Going forward, employers may find that roles with in-person requirements are harder to fill, particularly in those industries/functions where remote has become the norm.
Nevertheless, many companies are pressing onward with the great return as their goal.
These charts provide insight into company plans.
