As the coronavirus pandemic continues to upend traditional work patterns a full two years after it began, and the Great Resignation recasts the ranks for employees across media, marketing and advertising technology sectors, agencies, for one, are settling into to a hybrid future.

A Digiday+ Research survey in February of agency and publishing execs found that 40% of the 95 agency professional respondents said their employers will never return to full-time, in-person work schedules. Less than one in 10 have physically returned to work full time.

And on the publisher side, 30% of 127 publishing professional respondents said their employers will never return to full-time, in-person work schedules. As with agencies, less than one in 10 have returned to fill-time, in-person work.
