 Even after the pandemic ends, remote work will be far more common than in the past. A survey by OperationsInc, a human resource consulting firm, found that only 18 percent of respondents plan on ending their programs after the crisis fades.

But 60 percent of businesses that had no remote program in place before the COVID-19 will look at their practices. The survey of 12 questions, collected from August 11 through August 18, had 300 participants representing a variety of organizations across the country. 

Forty-three percent had no remote work programs in place before the pandemic and only 7 percent offered them to their entire workforce.

School scheduling will continue to be a major consideration in work scheduling, with sixty-five person of respondents planning to offer flexibility for employees with school scheduling issues while 18 percent were unsure of how they will manage these. 

Thirteen percent will work with employees on a case-by-cases basis and encourage them to do whatever possible to report back to the office with only 4 percent saying they will require employees to manage childcare issues and report back to the office as usual.
