For the last 18 months, many workers—particularly, office-based workers—have been working from home if their jobs allow it. According to a recent poll from the Bay Area Council, over 30% of employers surveyed still have a fully remote workforce, but three-quarters anticipate workers returning to the workplace, with 60% planning for flexible/variable work arrangements. As more people return to work in 2022, what measures are in place to ensure a safer workplace? How are transit officials helping employees return to their commutes safely? What steps can workers take to keep themselves safe? Join us for an insightful panel discussion on strategies for a safe return to work.
