Polish companies do not intend to continue remote work model - study
A report by ManpowerGroup shows that Polish companies do not intend to continue the remote working model, news agency PAP reports.
They declare that 88% of employees will return to stationary work, and only 9% of them will be offered a job in a hybrid model. Companies explain this with concerns about the well-being of employees and the quality of cooperation with them, reported the Polish Press Agency. According to the 'Talent Shortage' report, almost every fourth employer in Poland is afraid that performing tasks outside the office adversely affects the well-being of employees.
Companies' concerns are mainly related to the drop in productivity (18%) and the quality of cooperation in remote teams (20%). Concerns related to working outside the company's premises are not reported by 22% of entrepreneurs. According to the study, employers predict that 88% of their employees will return to work permanently at the company's premises within the next 6-12 months.
Only 9% of empl oyees are expected to be offered to work in a hybrid model. Entrepreneurs point out that due to the nature of the tasks performed, many functions in their companies cannot be performed outside the workplace. Almost 8 out of 10 employers in Poland say that most positions in their organizations require a daily presence in the company.
In order to make the positions that require daily attendance to the workplace more flexible, 39% of employers intend to introduce flexible working hours and 33% of companies declare to combine remote work with performing tasks at the company's premises.
