The State of Hybrid Work: How America Is Returning To Work

The Rosslyn BID conducted a national survey to uncover the different ways in which Americans are choosing to work and collaborate as hybrid work remains the new norm out of the pandemic. We will use these findings to help inform and implement innovative solutions as the future of work continues to evolve.
