Less than third of Poles can work remotely

Twenty-seven percent of working Poles are able to carry out their responsibilities remotely, compared to the OECD average of 40 percent, the Polish News Agency PAP has reported.

According to data provided by the country's Central Statistical Office GUS, only 25 percent of Poles have been doing their job from home since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, for most of them, telecommuting has been adopted only over certain periods of time.

By the end of June, only 10.2 percent of Polish workers declared they were working remotely on a regular basis, GUS said.

According to the Polish Economic Institute think-tank, the discrepancy between Poland and other OECD countries in terms of remote work capacity is a result of the country’s economic structure.

Poland’s economy is largely based on its industrial sector that provides employment to some 40 percent of the workforce and offers jobs which cannot be done remotely.

In addition, some 2,5 million Poles are employed in the retail sector, which translates to the fact that most jobs have to be done on-site.

The new coronavirus pandemic, which hit Poland in early March, has pushed a number of businesses to adopt remote working and switch to virtual interactions.
