New Study Shows 2 Out Of 3 Americans Feel Uncomfortable Returning To Work Right Now
As many businesses begin to reopen, Utah-based Qualtrics has released a new, in-depth study on how Americans feel about returning to work.
The study found that overall, two out of every three Americans said they would feel uncomfortable returning to the workplace right now. That number was true for all ages, from Boomers to Gen Z.
The biggest thing workers said they want to see before returning to work is that their work facilities are cleaned and disinfected regularly – and that cleaning supplies as well as hand sanitizer are available at all times throughout the offices.
More than half of those polled said they’d like their work to require all employees to wear a mask at all times.
As for when workers thought they’d be returning to the office, 28% said they didn’t expect to return to work on a daily basis until June. Forty-one percent thought it would be July or later, and 6 percent didn’t think it would happen until 2021.
Outside of work, Americans are hesitant to attend large gatherings.
Forty-eight percent of people think we will never get back to what normal was because of the pandemic, with people citing sporting events and concerts as the things that will now make them most uncomfortable. Other big worries for people are flying and taking public transportation, with more than seven in 10 people saying they’d feel uncomfortable using them.
