Canadian companies surveyed more people across Canada in early August to find out what return-to-work strategy employers envisioned.
Among the employees surveyed, nearly 60% indicated that their employer had prepared a strategy for returning to work.
Of those, just over half (53%) have already returned to the office, and 29% plan to return by the end of 2021.
For others, a return will be in January 2022, or it is still considered uncertain.
“While telecommuting was originally a necessity driven by the reality of a global pandemic, many Canadian employers now realize that employees can continue to work remotely without negatively impacting business operations.”
For a third of survey respondents, it was planned to return to the office part-time, two to three days a week. Whereas for one in five workers, the schedule will be completely flexible and they will not be charged a fixed number of days to work in the office.
In contrast, 40% of respondents have to return to the office five days a week.
Buckingham, who believes that workplace resilience helps improve employee engagement and retention, added, “Where there has been initial resistance and discomfort, the data suggests that employers have changed their minds when it comes to structuring the workplace.”
