Businesses throughout the United States are beginning to slowly reopen after the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) shut down most of the country in March of this year. What reopening looks like, however, varies substantially by state and local regulations, as well as by industry. 

This second edition of the Alera Group COVID-19 Employer Pulse Survey explores the continuing impact of the pandemic and offers insights into how employers throughout the country and in various industries are navigating employee health, benefits and human resources issues. As stay-at-home orders are lifted, the survey also explores how and when employers plan to bring employees back into the workplace. 

If you have any questions about creating a return-to-work strategy, please reach out to your local Alera Group advisor or email us at to be connected with a local firm.
