COVID-19’s Impact on Envoy Global Customers and Their Mobility Programs

Last Updated on March 2, 2023

Envoy surveyed its customers from March 25 to April 9 to better understand the impact COVID-19 is having on their immigration and mobility programs 

Employers are feeling a notable impact to business operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Travel restrictions and changes to immigration policies have halted global mobility and employment-based immigration, and many organizations are adjusting to a full-time remote work situation until conditions are deemed safe enough to return to offices. 

Envoy Global surveyed over 100 of our customers to better understand how HR teams and mobility leaders are responding to these challenges and adjusting processes to maintain a positive employee experience.

Four key takeaways from Envoy’s COVID-19 customer survey 

Nearly all customers have implemented a work-from-home situation, and the overwhelming majority found the transition to be smooth 

Companies in the U.S. and abroad have adopted blanket work-from-home policies to help slow the spread of the virus and keep their employees healthy and safe. Our survey reflects this trend as nearly all (97.01%) respondents indicated they are currently working remotely. Only 2.99% are still reporting to some sort of physical office.  

Depending on the industry and line of work, the transition from working in an office to a remote setting can vary in terms of feasibility. Thirty-nine percent of our customers said the adjustment has been “very easy,” followed closely by 32.84% who said it has been “somewhat easy”. Fifteen percent felt neutral about the transition, and 8.21% indicated that it has been “somewhat difficult”.
