Our Free COVID-19 Return-to-Work Employee Sentiment Survey

Free survey to gauge your employees’ readiness to return to work in light of COVID-19

Survey your employees for free about returning to the workplace

COVID-19 has significantly changed how businesses operate and since it’s not simply business as usual when employees return to the workplace, it’s a good idea for employers to survey employees when planning back-to-work efforts.

Employees returning to the physical workplace after spending extensive time working from home or furloughed are sure to have a wide range of emotions surrounding their return. This is true regardless of whether they work in an office setting, an industrial location, or retail/public-facing spaces. Some employees will have cabin fever and be excited to get back to work. Others, especially older workers or those with existing health issues, will be nervous about an increased risk of infection. Others still may simply be unable to return when you’d like them to due to a lack of childcare or other limitations that would preclude them leaving home.

Beyond creating a Coronavirus Workplace Re-entry Strategy and communicating it to your employees, conducting a workforce survey is arguably the most important task a company can do as you prepare for employees to come back to work. These insights can then help guide you in developing or refining your return-to-work strategy.

As data collection specialists focused on people and place, Stegmeier Consulting Group is engaged by all types of clients to conduct surveys and focus groups for their employees and customers. Our new 10 question COVID-19 Return-to-Work Readiness Survey is an easy to complete questionnaire that captures employees’ sentiments on coming back to work, which can help you proactively address workforce concerns.
