As the nation stumbles awkwardly into reopening the nation’s employees are returning to offices. Some are going in groups. Others are returning in much smaller numbers. Many continue to work from home.
What many employers aren’t asking is how do their employees feel about returning and what do they want when they return.
A survey done by JDP asks those questions. JDP is a company that firms will hire to screen potential employees. A huge number of the 2,038 people JDP talked to want a four-day work week that is staggered.
