A global survey to gather data about the impact of Covid-19 on how and where people are working has been launched by the Workplace Evolutionaries (WE), a Community of Practice within the International Facility Management Association (IFMA).
“This will be the first set of insights about how the sudden move to working from home has effected global employers and employees,” says Peter Ankerstjerne, First Vice Chair of IFMA. “The data will establish a benchmark for future surveys and give organizations the information they need to both improve the work-at-home experience now and plan for the future of work when the crisis is over.”
The Global Work-from-Home Experience Survey sets out to reveal:
- What is and isn’t working for people who are working from home due to the Covid-19 crisis
- Correlations between work-at-home effectiveness and organizational, technological, and employee readiness
- Priorities for improving the work-from-home and workplace experience
- The existing and potential impact of work-from-home on employer, employee, and environmental outcomes
- Insights into the impact Covid-19 will have on the future of work
“We want to help workplace leaders not only survive this crisis, but emerge from it with new insights, intelligence, and approaches for the future,” said Kate North, Co-Founder and Global Chair of Workplace Evolutionaries. WE is making the Work-from-Home Experience Survey available to all IFMA members and to a broad range of associations and organizations in order to gain the widest possible representation of respondents across functions, industries, and geographies.
