Kathryn Wylde, the organization’s president and chief executive officer, told Fox Business: “Despite the rollout of vaccine for COVID-19, the pandemic experience seems to have permanently changed work and commuting patterns. Employers anticipate that their office personnel will want more flexibility in their schedules, with most working remotely for part of the week.”
The survey said about 66% of companies would embrace a hybrid of remote work and office days; 9% wouldn’t require office visits, and 4% said conditions would be dependent on the job’s necessities.
