from ECO Office

Two weeks ago we sent out an inquiry to see if you’d like to participate in a basic survey of our local economy and how businesses are approaching a return to the office. Though you didn’t participate directly, we thought you might like to see an overview of the results.

  • A large majority of respondents said their sales & revenue had recovered to at least pre-pandemic levels.
  • Most businesses were optimistic about the next 6 months and expected a slight increase in revenue. 
  • Most said they were currently using a “hybrid model” for employees back in the office (ie, part-time work/part-time home).
  • About half said they plan to eventually move back to the office 100%. Interestingly that means about half are staying with some version of the part-time work/part-time home.
  • Half were putting up barriers or walls for safety and/or reducing the number of people in the office. Most were moving desks and stations farther apart. A small number were keeping their office layouts the same.

Thankfully no respondents said they expected to be closing down their businesses in the next 6 months!
