BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

6. Majority of CFOs anticipate workplace changes: PwC

Seventy-seven percent of chief financial officers anticipated changing workplace safety measures upon returning to on-site work, according to a PricewaterhouseCoopers International Ltd. survey.

A story on the survey of 305 CFOs was the sixth most read workers compensation-related story on Business Insurance’s website in 2020.

The survey, conducted April 20-22, found that 65% of the CFOs surveyed anticipated reconfiguring work sites to promote physical distancing, 52% anticipated changing and/or alternating shifts to reduce exposure, and 50% expected a higher demand for employee protection.

As states began to lift stay-at-home orders and reopen local communities, 52% of the respondents said their businesses could return to normal in less than three months if COVID-19 were to end immediately, according to the report.

A survey of 1,000 workers, also released in April, by Arlington, Virginia-based Eagle Hill Consulting LLC found that 54% of U.S. employees were worried about exposure to COVID-19 at their job.

In July, a survey of 150 businesses by Philadelphia-based law firm Blank Rome LLP found that 70% were creating their own return-to-work strategies based on guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
