The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission is conducting a public survey to understand the impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on employee commuting and remote work trends in Southeastern Wisconsin. All working-age residents (approximately 18-65 years old) in the seven-county Southeastern Wisconsin Region are invited to provide responses at www.sewrpc.org/C19Survey. The survey will be open for responses through Friday, April 23. All responses are completely confidential.
About the Survey
The COVID-19 pandemic that started in 2020 rapidly changed the way employees work, with many having to quickly shift to working from home and/or adapting to stricter workplace safety guidelines. Survey responses will help SEWRPC understand remote work adoption rates and help guide strategies for regional alternative transportation programs in a post-pandemic future. The survey applies to all working-age residents (approximately 18-65 years old) in the seven-county Southeastern Wisconsin Region, regardless of their level of experience with remote work. The survey consists of 12 questions and will take about 5-10 minutes to complete. An analysis of the survey results will be posted to SEWRPC’s website later this spring or summer.
