Do you know if or when you’ll be going back to the office? According to the Workforce Confidence Index released by LinkedIn, nearly 1/3 of employees have no idea about their company’s plans for office return. Only 10% of workers have been told that they won’t be returning to the physical workplace within the next quarter. 66% of workers surveyed said the attractions of the physical workplace were opportunities to collaborate and 65% named the chance to socialize with others in person. Finance workers were the most optimistic about the future for their employers while education, health care and public administration workers were the least confident that the situation for their employers would improve.
