  • 4 min to read

Parking lots are expected to fill up this summer, as thousands of Southwest Michigan employees return to the workplace following a 15-month hiatus.

Since June 1, workers who have been working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic were able to return to in-person work after 55 percent of the state’s adult population received at least one dose of the vaccine.


Many employees at Whirlpool Corp.’s Global Headquarters are still working from home due to the pandemic.


Wightman is using a hybrid model with employees working both from home and at the company’s Benton Harbor office.
