Abstract

In this paper we present how some employers and employees adapted during this unparalleled period. It encompasses the actions that were taken to keep employees safe, whether it was necessary to reduce employment and costs, make strategic changes, and whether roles and jobs had changed. With so much disruption to workforces and so many employees remote, we were also interested in understanding how companies were sustaining culture in their organizations, and overall, how individuals were feeling professionally. The results represent more than 100 interviews of professional workers across a broad range of industries, roles, and seniority. These interviews took place from November 2020 through January 2021 using a questionnaire.

Keywords: COVID-19, pandemic, companies, industries, employees, employers, remote work
