“The government data point showing 11.3% of workers teleworking from home due to the pandemic is a survey of employees across multiple industries,” Norton tells GlobeSt.com. “Approximately half of those surveyed are within industries that are less likely to support telework, such as retail, restaurant servers, and healthcare workers. Within the survey, if you drill down to industries that are office-using, and therefore have a greater ability to work remotely, the share of employees currently teleworking due to the pandemic rises to nearly 30%, which is in line with the data from Kastle Systems, showing 32.5% occupancy in the office buildings they track across 10 US metros."5 April 2022
