Tampa Bay businesses plan on more work-from-home opportunities post-pandemic, study finds

TAMPA, Fla. — Many Tampa Bay area employers plan to allow at least some work-from-home opportunities post-pandemic, a new regional survey from the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transit Authority found.

The Tampa Bay Area Regional Transit Authority (TBARTA) works to advance regional transportation needs in Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco and Pinellas counties. The organization’s purpose is to plan, develop, fund, implement, and operate a regional transit system in this area.

The Envision 2030 Transit & Telework Survey, created and administered by TBARTA, was open from January 11, 2021, through March 31, 2021. It received 549 responses with sampling across five counties.

Strategic Plan For A Sustainable Business School

Future uncertainties are becoming everybody’s business. I believe it’s our role as a business school to address this challenge, which is the thrust of our new 20-25 Strategic Plan, ‘Impact Future Generations.’ It’s our roadmap as EDHEC embarks on a project of deep transformation, backed by an ambitious investment plan of nearly €230m.

  • Verizon announced Tuesday it’s launching a new business plan called Citizen Verizon, which includes a number of socially responsible goals, like becoming carbon neutral by 2035. 

  • Diego Scotti, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon, said that the company including socially responsible goals in its business strategy is an important distinction. It means the company is encompassing stakeholder capitalism in its business model. 

  • Scotti agreed that more brands are moving toward stakeholder capitalism, the belief that companies should be accountable to not only their shareholders, but to their workers and communities in which they do business.

  • Other companies like Microsoft, Amazon, and Unilever have recently shared pledges to become carbon neutral (or carbon negative) in the coming years.
