More employees are going into offices in Manhattan but very few are there the whole work week.

A Partnership for New York City survey finds 49 percent of Manhattan employees are back at the workplace on an average weekday…up from 38 percent in April. However, President of the Partnership Kathryn Wylde says only 9 percent are in the office five days a week.

“Employers are saying, there should be a reason to come to the office. If you are just going to be on zoom calls all day, you could be anywhere.”

The survey shows the main reasons employees are negative about office returns is they are better productive from home followed by public transit is not safe or reliable.
