To understand how organizations are continuing to react to the pandemic and the changing business environment in the context of their workplaces and workforces, The Conference Board conducted an online survey in September 2020 with 330 human capital executives, mostly in large companies—a follow-up to our survey from April 2020. The accompanying chart book shares the survey findings about remote work and hiring, productivity and well-being, workforce cost-reduction actions, and plans for returning to the workplace.
In April 2020 during the early stages of the pandemic, The Conference Board launched its first survey tracking human capital (HC) responses to COVID-19. We published From Immediate Responses to Planning for the Reimagined Workplace: Human Capital Responses to COVID-19 in May. What most of us had hoped would be short-term responses to the pandemic have evolved to have long-term repercussions on both the workplace and the workforce.
