What does the future of work look like for your business?

COVID-19 has changed how we think about the physical workplace. In an effort to understand more about the specific workplace scenarios for businesses across upstate New York, our resilient design team asked business decision makers across New York State to participate in a short, anonymous survey.

Responses came in from a range of geographic regions, industries and company sizes. The survey tells us that:

  • A majority of respondents came from companies that had a primarily office-based work style. As a result of COVID-19, almost 2/3 of those shifted to remote work.
  • Over half of respondents shared that their companies are considering a flexible work arrangement for employees moving forward.
  • Respondents are mixed on the impact of remote work on productivity. While half of those shifting to remote work claim productivity stayed the same, the remainder are split evenly on productivity being impacted positively and negatively.
  • Physical office space is still viewed as important by the vast majority of respondents.
