MSPs are optimistic that their working conditions will go back to normal once the pandemic is over.
A version of this article was first published September 23, 2020, by HCPro's Credentialing Resource Center, a sibling publication to HealthLeaders.
Almost 70% of MSPs said they will return to working onsite when the COVID-19 pandemic is over. This is according to the 2020 MSP Salary Survey, which is conducted annually by Credentialing Resource Center. Twenty-three percent said they will do a hybrid of working both from home and the office. The remaining 7% said they would not return to working onsite. Interestingly, many MSPs left comments in the survey that they were deemed essential employees and were not given the option to work remotely because of the pandemic.
The survey also reveals that prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, only 30% of MSPs were able to work from home (either part- or full-time). Many respondents commented that their department is not paperless, so working from home would not be feasible.
The MSP salary survey remains open for a few more weeks, and we encourage everyone to participate! The more answers we have, the more thorough a report we will be able to release to help MSPs further advance the profession. To take the survey, click here.
