Agreement On Telework

For example, based on employee surveys, statistics Netherlands (CBS) showed that teleworkers were generally well-trained, were relatively often in surveillance positions and worked long weeks, more than 40 hours [11]. In a large Dutch study [12], based on four editions of the Large-scale National Working Conditions Survey (NWCS), with a representative response of more than 22,000 workers per year [13], teleworkers were relatively often well trained, men, married or cohabiting with children, and lived relatively far from their work compared to non-teleworkers. Teleworkers have also been relatively frequently in surveillance positions. It is often thought that workers who have the opportunity to work remotely have greater flexibility in the way they work with their colleagues, to be more balanced in their personal work situation and to have greater flexibility in working time [14]. However, the work ac afrom from the office ca more detailed data on the prevalence of telework can be deduced from the European Survey on Working Conditions (EWCS) conducted every five years by Eurofound. The 2017 and 2020 reports will present data on telework and mobile work on an icT basis based on EWCS 2015 [2][3]. Around 19% of EU workers have telework and mobile ICT-based agreements in the workplace. Nearly half of them are employees who are sometimes mobile, while a quarter are highly mobile employees. In the EU, work is most prevalent in Scandinavian countries in the ICT-based telework/mobile work sector, and to a lesser extent in Southern and Eastern Europe (Chart 2). Differences between countries can be explained by various factors such as ICT diffusion, geography and work culture, including business models. All decentralized work regimes have in common the need to provide workers with more flexibility and control over where they would perform a task. During the Industrial Revolution, employees were attached to their workstations in order to perform a particular task. In recent decades, European countries and Western society in general have moved from industrial to more information-based work (particularly in the service sector).

This has allowed companies, combined with new technological opportunities, to provide time and tasks for the sites. Those who accept or introduce telework often have high expectations. On the one hand, they aim to increase the flexibility and control possibilities of workers with regard to working time and the workplace, in order to create more productive workers with better job satisfaction.
