Survey results from the week of April 13:

Of those who are in the purchasing role, 50% are unable to do their job from home because of manual paper processes that have to be done on-site.

Prior to COVID-19, 30% percent of Inside Salespeople never worked from home while 25% worked from home more than 90% of the time. Another 25% said that their job can’t be done from home due to taking care of customers on-site.

For Outside Salespeople, half of respondents said they worked from home prior to COVID-19 between 51% and 75% of the time.

Nearly 67% of Sales Managers worked from home between 76% and 90% of the time prior to COVID-19.

Of those working from home, nearly all agreed that they have access to the right resources to perform their job effectively..

About 9% feel there is a lack of communication when it comes to changes and how it will impact themselves and the business.
