More SMEs switch to remote working in Poland
An increasing number of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in Poland are switching to remote working amid the coronavirus epidemic, a study has found.
Some 77% of small and medium firms have now adopted such a form of working to a greater or lesser extent, up around 42% two months ago, public broadcaster Polish Radio's IAR news agency reported. The most popular model is one in which three-quarters of a company's staff work at the office and a quarter remotely, the agency added, citing a study by the National Debt Register (KRD) company, a business data provider.
Initially, the aim of remote working was mainly to ensure the safety of employees. One in five entrepreneurs plans to spend money saved on renting office space or business trips on new technology and better IT systems, according to the report.
