HOW ENGAGED ARE EMPLOYEES DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS?
Across Canada and the United States, many employees’ working arrangements, including how they interact with their organizations,
employers, and colleagues, have shifted rapidly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In early May 2020, Leger and the Institute for Public Relations (IPR) conducted a survey among Canadian and American employees (those who are not unemployed, furloughed, or laid off due to COVID-19) to explore:
- How various attributes (including their productivity, collaboration with coworkers, satisfaction with their company, etc.) have changed since COVID-19
- How well various company leaders and teams are communicating updates and information to them during COVID-19
- How often they are currently speaking to their direct supervisor/manager (via phone, video conference, or face-to-face) currently, compared to before COVID-19
