As the business landscape resumes, older professionals appear keen on stepping out into the post-Covid-19 world while younger professionals are not rushing to embrace it, revealed the sixth edition of the LinkedIn Workforce Confidence Index.


Based on survey responses of 1,351 professionals across India, findings from the fortnight of June 1-14 reveal how workforce feels about returning to work, and how professionals from different generations exhibit varied confidence levels towards returning to the physical workplace.


As per the study, 38% of Gen X and 29% of Baby Boomers said they will willingly return to the workplace as soon as they are allowed, whereas 1 in 3 Gen Z (29%) and Millennials (32%) stated they will continue working remotely until they feel safer about being around others.


India's workforce is also beginning to feel more confident about their personal finances as 1 in 4 professionals expect their earned incomes (25%) and personal spending (26%) to increase in the next 6 months. In fact, about 1 in 3 professionals also expect their personal savings (31%) and personal recurring debt payments (29%) to increase in the next 6 months.


Findings claimed more than half (55%) of Indian professionals think being exposed to people neglecting safety precautions is a key concern. 58% of Millennials and 56% of Gen X professionals are shown being concerned about the same problem.


The study further highlight that 42% Millennials are concerned about commuting to work while nearly half (46%) are worried about eating and sharing resting/collaborative spaces. The report also shows that inadequate space between workstations is cited as another primary concern with returning to work, as it could make it tough for professionals to practice healthy measures of social distancing.
