WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES — A recent survey by ResumeBuilder.com found that 80% of companies plan to track employee office attendance in 2024, up from 79% currently. 

The survey polled 800 business leaders at organizations and found that 91% of companies will require employees to go into the office at least monthly next year, while 75% will mandate at least weekly office work. 

Badge swipes are the most common tracking method, used by 62% of organizations surveyed. Additional popular tracking methods include manual checks (50%), Wi-Fi network monitoring (50%), occupancy sensors (43%), and under desk sensors (38%).

Moreover, one in three companies will terminate non-compliant employees. Additional potential consequences include reductions in bonuses (57% of companies), benefits (54%), and salaries (53%).

The survey found that providing incentives is almost universal, with 91% of companies offering perks like happy hours (52%), catered meals (46%), and upgraded spaces (41%) to encourage office work. 

Despite these efforts, ResumeBuilder.com advises flexibility to “bridge the gap”.

“When you force people back into the office, you will likely lose amazing employees who had been thriving in their home environment,” warns Resume Builder’s Resume and Career Strategist Julia Toothacre.

Software company Scoop Technologies forecasted in its 2024 Flex Report that executives will admit return-to-office (RTO) mandates have failed to improve productivity. A Flexjobs survey also found that the majority are willing to trade pay for remote work as RTO affects their mental health and is more costly.
