Work from home and the reduced need for employees in New York’s financial and professional-services industries have prompted some companies to consider paring their presence in the city by at least 20%, according to a new study.
About 25% office employers intend to reduce their footprint by at least a 20%, and about 16% expect to move jobs out of NYC, according to the Partnership for New York City, an influential group composed of corporate chief executives, which hired several consulting firms to conduct the study.
Companies also expect only 10% of their employees to return to the office this Summer and just 40% by year-end, according to the survey, which was conducted in May and released Monday.
The study estimated that city and state tax revenue losses may exceed $37-B during the next 2 yrs, as the state’s economic output drops 7%. The city’s economy will shrink as much as 13% on the year.
Mayor De Blasio’s office refused to comment.
