According to a recent survey from The Conference Board of over 1,100 US workers, 20 percent of individual contributors feel pressure to return to the workplace in order to keep their jobs. That is in stark contrast to the 4 percent of C-suite executives who feel such pressure. And while individual contributors feel the most pressure to return, they also feel the least comfortable with returning (42 percent vs. 31 percent overall). “These survey results reinforce the need for employers to hear concerns about the pressure that individual contributors and front-line managers, especially, feel to return to the workplace to keep their jobs. These cohorts are less likely to be involved with planning the return. Without a continuous dialogue, and in many cases, the lack of a detailed plan about returning to the workplace, it comes as no surprise that these workers are more apprehensive,” says Rebecca Ray, PhD, Executive Vice President of Human Capital at The Conference Board.
