Alight recently conducted a brief survey to get a pulse on how employers across the U.S. are responding to COVID-19. We’ll continue to share our findings here, so check back regularly for the latest insights.
Today, we’re sharing some early prevalence on mandatory work-from-home policies.
23% of employers have already mandated a work-from-home policy, while 77% of organizations have not. Among those organizations that currently do not have a mandatory work-from-home policy, 73% are considering implementing one.
Among those that have already implemented a work-from-home policy, nearly half of organizations (46%) say it includes employees that already have the ability to work-from-home. One-third of organizations with a mandatory policy say it applies to all employees.
Many employers also reported having workers in roles that cannot be performed from home – health care workers, manufacturing, etc.
