On June 1st, WorkSmart polled the leaders of their small business clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region to get their insights on the effects of COVID-19 on their business.
This poll will be continued twice per month through August with results released shortly after the survey is closed.
Of the respondents:
- nearly two-thirds indicated the majority of their team members continue working from home.
- 60% indicated neutral or positive effects on their business; however, greater than 40% indicated their organization is still hiring, which is increased from 36% in our previous poll. A positive sign!
- More than 50% expect remote work to become more prevalent in their workplace going forward (another increase from our previous poll), and the vast majority had a smooth experience transitioning to remote work
