Returning Employees to their Workplaces

The survey was completed by members of the Alliance of Chief Executives, most of whom are CEOs throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Arizona. CEOs in other regions can look to this data to help make their own plans.

More than 300 companies were asked to participate in this survey, and these CEOs lead companies in virtually every industry and range from early-stage growth companies to midsized companies to global public companies. However, most of the businesses surveyed are midsized companies in the $20 to $200 million dollar revenue range. The survey was conducted via Emojot, an enterprise-grade customer experience management platform.
