Empty Offices, Full Offices? What is better?


“Over a third of desks may remain empty this year, according to a recent Gallup survey.”

LinkedIn’s January News story featured a December ’21 article from Jim Clifton, CEO at Gallup, and Ben Wigert, Ph.D, MBA, Director of Research and Strategy, Workplace Management at Gallup.

Also from that article:

“Here are some key facts I learned from them. There are 125 million full-time jobs in America.

Of those, right at 50% — or about 60 million — report that their current job can be done remotely working from home.

We interviewed a representative sample of them.”
