Pulse Survey Overview

We are all living through a period of unprecedented workforce change. How we work, where we work, and what we expect from work is shifting before our eyes. Furthermore, the pace of change is accelerating. Trends once viewed as making an impact in five years are now at our doorstep. It's time for our rewards and workforce strategies to adapt. It's time to make the agile and resilient workforce a reality.

In our next global COVID-19 pulse survey for senior HR professionals and leaders, we explore how companies are beginning to approach long-term workforce transformation while continuing to address the many near-term challenges presented by the pandemic. Covered topics include:

  • Workforce agility, including your readiness to build and support a more agile and resilient workforce;
  • Performance management, including changes to goal-setting, calibration and feedback processes;
  • Virtual working arrangements, including stipends to support employees in remote settings;
  • Rewards programs, including ongoing cost-saving measures in response to the pandemic;
  • Major workforce actions, including layoffs and furloughs over time as the pandemic progresses;
  • Time-off policies, including emergency leave practices and encouraging employees to take time away;
  • Childcare assistance, including special benefits to help employees manage school closures; and
  • Health assessments and testing, including steps to protect employees working on-site.
