Forty-four large employer members of Business Group on Health responded to this survey, conducted between May 7 and May 14, 2020. The purpose of this survey was to determine how large employers are supporting their employees as countries and worksites begin to reopen and welcome employees back to work.
- Large employers are facing many challenges as they begin to reopen additional worksites: 68% reported employee anxiety about returning to work as one of the top challenges.
- 61% of large employers have implemented daily temperature checks for employees entering the worksite, conducted largely by internal staff, third-party vendors or occupational health clinic staff.
- Many large employers are offering childcare to employees returning to the workplace, with nearly a third offering backup childcare.
