Remote work not that common in Poland - survey

Almost three in four Poles work exclusively from an office and 23% of employees are allowed to work remotely for at least one day a week, reported the Warsaw Business Journal citing a survey commissioned by Gamfi.
The percentage increases if the person is self-employed or works in services. Personnel Service experts emphasize that although the home office concerns only a section of employees, it will permanently fit into the image of the Polish labor market.
Especially that employees who can work remotely count on a statutory home office. The expectations are not high – one day of remote work a week.
"In the past year, companies had the opportunity to think about what model of work is optimal for them. It is already known that there is no one path for everyone. Some will return to their offices permanently, others will switch to remote work, especially in communication or IT, and most companies will opt for a mixed model because the home office has become so popular that it will not be a benefit, but a standard," Krzysztof Inglot, labor market expert at the Personnel Service, said.
