For IPA’s latest Pulse Survey, we reached out to firm leaders in early August to find out how their return to the office was coming along – and whether vaccine mandates would be among those plans.
Thank you to the more than 230 leaders who weighed in with their thoughts and comments. Just over 12% of respondents represented firms over $100 million in net revenue; 11% represented firms from $50 million to $100 million; 27% represented firms in the $20- to $50-million range; and nearly 50% represented firms under $20 million.
