We expect that COVID-19 will have many lasting impacts on the world of work and human capital processes, and we wanted to capture what human capital professionals are thinking today as they look to the future. To gauge how organizations are reacting to the changing business environment in the context of their workforces, we conducted an online survey in April 2020 with more than 150 human capital executives, mostly in large companies. Our accompanying chartbook shares the survey findings about remote work and the cost-reduction actions that have already been taken, as well as HR priorities for the recovery phase.

Many organizations immediately required their knowledge workers to work remotely and laid off or furloughed some workers. Many others have had to close their businesses at least temporarily.
