What’s Next for Employers: Blank Rome’s Workplace Survey Results & Playbook

COVID-19 Employer Workplace Survey & Playbook

The 2020s have already brought a lifetime of workplace challenges and changes, along with a host of opportunities; from a novel coronavirus outbreak and sudden shifts in work models to a recovery marked by an intense labor market coined as “The Great Resignation” coupled with stretched supply chains and rising inflation.

In this rapidly changing business environment, Blank Rome conducted its sixth employer survey from March 3 to March 18, 2022, asking clients about key workplace topics. We received responses from 152 C-Suite executives, in-house attorneys, and human resources professionals from a diverse array of businesses across various industries and geographies. The respondents shared their collective knowledge and experience on steps taken to address myriad workplace challenges, including:

  • Business environment
  • Worker safety protocols
  • COVID-19 vaccinations
  • Changing work models
  • Talent competition & protection
  • Increased use of technology
  • Cybersecurity concerns
  • Diversity, equity & inclusion

Guided by the current survey data and analyzed through comparison to similar questions from our 2020 and 2021 surveys, our Labor & Employment attorneys have also taken an opportunity to formulate a playbook for addressing these complex obstacles that will play a pivotal role as businesses make high-stakes workplace decisions and position themselves for “What’s Next.”
