According the ING Financial Barometer almost 8 million Poles worked remotely during the pandemic, ING Bank Slaski said on Wednesday, reported the PAP news agency.

The survey shows that in Poland as many as 55% of employees declared that they have a job which, if necessary, enables remote work.

However, only 22%, or around 2 million, say they work remotely full-time. Most employees perform their work tasks in the so-called hybrid form. Of those who can perform their professional duties remotely, 28% believe that after the pandemic they will not work in this way at all. A further 24% think they will work from home less than one day a week.

Only 19% expect remote work to dominate, occupying over 60% of their time. The authors of the study emphasize that prior to the pandemic this figure accounted for 12% of employees.

The study also shows that remote work allows achieving a work-life balance, according to 56% of respondents. In turn, 54% declared that they work more effectively from home, while 46% hold the opposite opinion. The ING Financial Barometer is a cyclical survey of the ING Group.
