In early January, the Center City District (CCD) distributed a survey to Center City and University City employers to gauge their current stance on in-office and remote work, their plans for the first quarter of 2022, and factors they were weighing in making workplace decisions. The survey was distributed electronically between January 4 and January 21 to members of Central Philadelphia Development Corporation, CCD board member firms and was forwarded by the Building Owners and Managers Association to other downtown office tenants. A total of 250 companies and organizations received the five-minute survey and 114 (45.6%) responded. The respondents represent a broad cross-section of industries and workforce size in Philadelphia; collectively they employ approximately 24,700 workers. Center City and University City companies are continuing to adapt and remain flexible, while strongly valuing the importance of in-office work and a downtown presence.
