Americans are divided on whether to return to the office — and on the reasons for their choice. 58 percent cited Covid-19 risks while commuting or working as a reason, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Of the 48 percent who have returned to the office, 42 percent said they are more productive there, 34 percent said their employer made them feel safe and 22 percent said it made for a healthier work-life balance.
Still, other data show that not many office workers have returned to their desks. By the end of October, only a quarter of employees nationwide had returned. Key-card data show the leading return-to-work cities, such as Dallas, still have fewer than half of workers back.
The real estate industry has been pushing for employees to return. The question is will they?
