WASHINGTON, D.C., September 9, 2020 — Stay-at-home mandates closed offices and stopped commutes for many, but new data from Clutch, the leading B2B ratings and reviews firm, reveals that 55% of employees would feel safe returning to their office.
In contrast, only 32% of workers would feel unsafe going back to work.
While this data suggests that employees are ready to return to business as usual, they are still split on their preferred timeline for returning to the office.
The pandemic highlighted benefits of remote work that aren’t accessible in traditional office roles, pushing some to prefer working from home.
For example, Patrick Garde, technical director at SEO firm ExaWeb Corporation, said, “I’m starting a family and working remotely will make sure I’m able to be a hands-on father to my daughter.”
