What’s Keeping Adults Up at Night?

What’s Keeping Adults Up at Night? 1ASA Workforce Monitor, August 27, 2020

Three in four U.S. adults are worried about the rising price of groceries (75%) and the increasing cost of living (74%), which they see continuing over the next year as the nation navigates the pandemic’s impact on the economy and daily life, according to the latest ASA Workforce Monitor® online survey conducted by The Harris Poll.

Nearly two-thirds are also concerned about stock market ups and downs (65%), their retirement funds losing money (65%), or reinstatement of stay-at-home orders in the event of a Covid-19 resurgence (63%) in the next year

“During this time of great economic uncertainty, people across the U.S. are feeling the rising financial heat as the nation continues to battle Covid-19,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “Staffing agencies are continuing to hire across the U.S. and offer work opportunities for people whose jobs were displaced due to the pandemic or who want an additional source of income to help alleviate some of the financial worries keeping them up at night.”

Political Expression in the Workplace

Political Expression in the Workplace 2Lexology (08/11/20) Burnett, Caroline; Grines, Lara; Sturgeon, Jeffrey

Some 47% of employees say the debate surrounding the 2020 elections is affecting their ability to get work done, according to a survey by Gartner. Moreover, 36% of respondents said they avoid talking to or working with a co-worker because of their political views.

Employers should take steps to prevent political polarization from affecting their workplace, such as establishing office policies and holding training sessions on showing respect to co-workers; and implementing dress code policies that prohibit employees from displaying political buttons, logos, and other political speech in a uniform and nondiscriminatory manner. They also should adopt and enforce nondiscriminatory rules prohibiting non-work-related political activities in the workplace while being mindful of political activities that may be protected by the National Labor Relations Act or applicable state laws. Among other things, employers should reiterate the company’s zero tolerance policy for discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in the workplace.
