The survey revealed that even before the COVID-19 contagion, between 26% and 30% of respondents, living in large cities, have worked from home at least one day a week.
In smaller cities, 12.1% of respondents were already working from home before the pandemic all five days of the week, with this number increasing sevenfold during the pandemic.
More than half replied that they had received the support and motivation necessary for working from home and 64.1% also received all the required equipment.
The survey participants find remote working valuable mainly because they save time getting to and from work and have flexibility.
The biggest problems associated with working from home are loneliness and not having fixed working hours.
The impression is that the amount of work that must be done from home has not changed much compared to office work. In fact, 82.3% of the survey participants think they work in a similar or the same way as before the pandemic.
53% of the respondents were men and 64% live and work in Belgrade.
Most of the respondents, 70%, were between the ages of 25 and 40, while 30% work in IT companies.
