The State of Consumer Spending: Inflation's Impact on The Workforce

As employers grapple with whether to recall their teams to in-office work or to offer more flexibility with a remote or hybrid workforce, new data revealed by First Insight indicates that remote/hybrid workers are more negatively impacted by the effects of inflation than full-time in-office workers.

In this report, you'll hear from both remote/hybrid and full-time employees:

  • How price increases are impacting their daily lives
  • Changing shopping behavior with rising inflation
  • Where they're noticing price increases
  • Where they're cutting back overall and specifically within entertainment, groceries, and apparel/footwear/accessories.
  • How inflation is impacting workers' travel
  • How workers are allocating their discretionary spending
