Vyopta, a leading provider of Collaboration Intelligence, today released additional results of a recent survey focused on how companies plan to support in-person work during and after the Covid-19 pandemic. IT and Workplace teams are now tasked with helping teams stay productive while ensuring social distancing guidelines are being followed by those coming back to the office.
HR Technology News: TecHRseries Interview with Daniel Oppong, Founder at OhanaHealth
As of mid-October, less than 15 percent of office workers have returned to their offices in New York City, the largest office market in the United States, according to Partnership for New York City. According to a study by Wakefield Research commissioned by Envoy, 73 percent of U.S. employees fear that being in their workplace could pose a risk to their personal health and safety. It’s not clear when, if ever, offices will return to their previous level of activity.
“Companies are making progress in determining how and when to bring their workers back into the office, with gradual and part-time returns becoming normal in offices that are now socially distanced,” said Nick Wiik, Senior Product Manager of Workspace Insights at Vyopta.” And a number of them, like those in the pharmaceutical, hospital, and supply chain verticals have never left. They need a way to ensure safety protocols such as social distancing are being followed as well as implement contact tracing should an outbreak occur.”
