As Central Texas commuters continued an unprecedented shift in commute patterns this spring, Movability and Texas State University partnered on a regional telework survey, the first of its kind in the region. The results show that many employees felt just as or more productive in a remote work setting, and those who had previously had long commutes reported better physical and mental health while teleworking.

Movability also surveyed our members about their plans for returning to shared workspaces. Our results show that:
- 98% of members who responded have a majority of their employees working remotely due to COVID-19.
- 22% of Movability members have definite plans to bring employees back to a shared workspace and 73% said they have tentative return plans or are developing return-to-work plans.
- Nearly two-thirds of respondents said they plan to bring employees back into the office starting in June, 2020.
Movability is also very excited to announce that Best Workplaces for Commuters, with which we partner, is offering a new Telework Certificate Program. This program is designed to help managers and teleworkers stand out in a crowded digital workplace. If your workplace is a 2020 BWC recipient, you are eligible to receive one free registration and a discounted rate for additional participants.
