The difficulties that every third employer (33.3%) faces are: the regulation of the requirements and rules for teleworking in the additional agreements with the employees and and provision of the workplaces at home with the necessary equipment. Half of the employers intend to keep the remote forms of employment after the end of the emergency epidemic situation.

72% of the employers contend that reducing overhead costs is the biggest plus of teleworking. According to 67% of the respondents, creating flexible forms of employment is the biggest advantage of teleworking.
