One year after the COVID-19 pandemic forced businesses to close their doors, even temporarily, many hiring decision-makers say their companies have made changes to keep employees safe in physical workplaces.

This is according to a new survey from The Harris Poll commissioned by Express Employment Professionals.

Hiring decision-makers reported safety changes made in the last several months include:

  • Adding sanitation stations around the workplace: 46%
  • Providing personal protective equipment (PPE): 46%
  • Reorganizing physical workspaces to meet social distancing guidelines: 46%
  • Reducing the number of employees in physical workspaces at any given time: 41%

Nearly 4 in 5 (79%) also believe their company offers employees adequate PPE.

To this point, around 7 in 10 (71%) say they feel completely safe going to work in a physical workplace (e.g., an office) right now or feel safer physically going into work now than they did when the COVID-19 pandemic first began (69%).

Express experts around the country say their clients have taken the above measures in workplaces to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

A very large percentage of companies have taken an extraordinary number of steps to ensure workplace safety, It impacts their bottom line, public image and ability to recruit talent to meet their business needs.

Some companies have never been cleaner and are very focused on COVID-19 safety, but we know out in the community there are many companies still not following the recommended safety guidelines.
