Workplace Commons

COVID-19 Workplace Commons is a worldwide community dedicated to enabling the sharing of information on workplace practices regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

Currently, there is a lack of real-world, timely and accessible data on how employers are changing their workplaces due to COVID-19. As a result, employers, policy makers and many others are in need of strong information to make informed decisions about back-to-workplace policies, testing, practices and priorities.

Arizona State University, in collaboration with the World Economic Forum, developed a survey to collect, disseminate and enable access to anonymized data within multiple industry sectors and geographical locations. The survey collected information on who was tested, how frequently, with what test and at what cost, contact tracing, response and preparedness needs, and anticipated challenges in the short- and long-term. The Workplace Commons benchmarking survey includes responses from more than 1,000 companies worldwide.

Phase II survey results will be available at the end of April.
