As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt the daily lives of workers around the globe, many are starting to envision their post-pandemic future — and the workplace still plays a central role.
On Wednesday, November 11, a panel of Gensler's Global Workplace Research Leaders, designers, and workplace strategists including Janet Pogue McLaurin, Tim Pittman, Elizabeth Brink, Randy Howder, Jean Anderson, and Todd Heiser, hosted a webinar focused on the hybrid future of work. Experts shared insights based on data from Gensler's latest U.S. Workplace surveys, conducted among 2,300+ U.S. workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. These findings reflect where and how workers will want to work in the future. The conversation also highlighted the continuing role of the physical workplace in a post-pandemic future — and how the office will evolve to meet new expectations, behaviors, and needs.

Survey Methodology: This survey of 2,300+ U.S. workers was conducted online via an anonymous, panel-based survey from July 22 to August 24, 2020. Respondents were required to be working full-time for a company, organization, or firm of 100 or more people, and to have worked in an office environment prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time of data collection, respondents worked in a variety of scenarios: full time from home, part-time in the office (hybrid work model), and full time in the office. Respondents were evenly distributed across 10 industries and represent a wide range of seniority levels, roles, ages, and geographies across the U.S. For reference, respondents were categorized into the following generational cohorts: Generations Z and millennials (18–39 years old), Generation X (40–54), Baby Boomers (55 and older).
