The 2020 COVID pandemic thrust employers into a great experiment, with the U.S. becoming a primarily Work From Home (WFH) economy overnight. Although the number of remote workers steadily increased over the last decade – from 21% in 2011 to 24% in 2015 – nothing adequately prepared us for the sudden shift in 2020.
Early in 2021, Achurch Consulting and Association TRENDS partnered to survey over 350 association leaders about their experience with remote work. This research aimed to understand how associations are working, what resources they are providing to employees, how employees are engaging with their work, and what are the foreseeable challenges and opportunities.
These robust survey responses, supplemented with follow-up interviews with senior association leaders led to the State of Association Workplaces Post-Pandemic Survey Report – created not only to share data-driven trends but to also provide key insights on where associations are progressing.
Report findings prove that remote work is no longer on the rise – it has arrived. Remote work is the future for associations.
