Working from home/return to work employee feedback survey

I hope you are all doing well. It is certainly challenging times, and it’s clear that the impacts of this pandemic range so vastly from one individual to the next, and I wanted to take the time to thank each of you for your continued dedication despite these unique challenges we all face.

I wanted to reach out directly and provide a bit of an update with respect to return to work planning, and give each of you an opportunity to provide feedback with respect to your experience working from home and your feelings around returning to the workplace.

The TTC has organized a cross-functional team to help plan for a safe and systematic return to the workplace for employees temporarily working from home. On that, rest assured working from home will continue until September at the earliest. Unfortunately, planning during the pandemic is challenging and timelines can be moving targets much like the recovery planning timelines at the federal, provincial and municipal levels. With that said, we remain committed to updating you as developments arise and we continue to prioritize your safety in our planning. We do understand there are individual and/or business requirements that may require you to enter the workplace from time to time, so please ensure you are connecting with your Manager if you have a need to be in the workplace.

In order to assist the return to work planning team, please complete a short 10-minute survey (sent via e-mail). There are two parts to the survey: the first part is to understand your thoughts about working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic and to understand additional considerations that should be reviewed; the second part is obtain feedback regarding an eventual return to the workplace.

The results of this survey will help inform strategic decision making as it pertains to working from home as well as co-ordinating a safe return to the workplace.

The deadline for completion is Wednesday July 22, 2020 by 4 p.m. Please note that this survey is anonymous. You are being asked to complete the survey based on your personal experience and opinions about working from home and returning to the workplace (e.g. Managers must complete this from their own perspective and not that of their direct reports). No personally identifiable information is being collected, or is required. It will be optional to identify your department and work location.

We appreciate you taking the time to provide your important feedback. The results will be an important component in planning the TTC’s strategy with respect to working from home and a safe return to the workplace. For any questions related to the survey, you may contact Matt Davies, matthew.davies@ttc.ca or 416-393-6809. 

Thank you.
