recently 200 thousand employees to the largest multinational Corporation received a letter from the CEO of Google Sundar Pichai, which, according to The Wall Street Journal said: “to give employees the opportunity to plan life in advance, we are extending a voluntary work from home until June 30, 2021 – for those employees whose tasks do not require presence in the office.” Recall that in may Twitter announced that it will allow everyone to work from home forever, and Facebook – that at least half of employees will work remotely over the next five to ten years. Amazon yet stayed January 2021.

at the same time with the American giants, the German company Siemens announced that its 140 thousand employees in 43 countries will have the right to always work from home three days a week. This is a voluntary scheme and those who wish to permanently work in the office, will have the same opportunity, when the restrictions caused by the epidemic of the coronavirus, will be completely removed. According to local economic research Institute Ifo, this example is ready to follow more than half of the companies in Germany. Support them and the authorities: in April the Minister of labour and social policy Mr Hail said he will consider whether to legislatively fix the right to work from home, as, for example, in Britain.

In accordance with the employment rights Act, employees in the United Kingdom have every right to demand flexible working conditions. And one of the recent surveys, the results of which leads the European portal New Europe, showed that 65 percent of Britons work at home was more productive than in traditional offices. Besides it allows to save capacity of the office and to recruit staff from different countries, based on their professionalism and not place of residence.

However, this scheme contributes to the dispersal of employees in different countries and the weakening of the link between them, and requires a significant investment in programs that provide the safety of a virtual office.

And this was a useful experience of German software developer SAP SE. The Financial Times reports that his staff, which is about 25 thousand people worldwide, even before the pandemic coronavirus about 2.6 days a week worked at home. When you have a pandemic, the company has almost completely switched to remote work, and so well that now she shares the experience with other German firms. For example, to reduce the stress of working at home for employees created a virtual platform for Never eating Lunch Alone (Never ever have lunch alone. – Approx. ed.), and children were taken online lessons of playing the piano. At the same time, German companies are abandoning the standard scheme, in which employee pay head��sit the number of hours worked. SAP came to an agreement with the unions that reward will be linked to productivity, an hourly fee will be canceled. Siemens also plans to shift since the presence on the result. But at the same time employees have to accept the fact that their work will be closely and assess stricter. “If you want to work at home, you have to accept the fact that your salary will be more flexible. This is the reverse of the medal,” – said The Financial Times, the head of the Department of labor in the German economic Institute in Cologne Oliver Stettes.

not surprisingly, in the global ranking of countries with the most flexible policy towards working from home in the lead is Germany. A study conducted by the innovative company Instant Group, showed that in this country 80 per cent of jobs can be reallocated to remote mode.

But is successfully introduced in other countries. The pandemic radically changed the life of the Greeks, who until the coronavirus hardly worked from home. In March of this year, only 4.7 percent of people in Greece prefer a home office, but in April the rate jumped to the level of 26 percent, writes the newspaper Ekathimerini.

New reality has pushed local authorities to develop a special legal framework which would regulate relations between the employer and employee in terms of udalenkie. To build the base will be on the list of rules, which in addition to terminology and the legal status of the work of the house also contain interesting details regarding the employer responsibilities. For example, if an employee works from home using their own equipment, the company is obliged to cover all costs associated with its maintenance. In addition, the employer must determine how much the employee cost the use of his equipment during business hours.

the New rules also prohibit bosses to follow their subordinates through the webcam and prescribes to introduce a system of control with all the laws concerning personal data. A particularly difficult issue is the working hours for employees working at home. Authorities have yet to develop a convenient model to work is not interfered with personal time, and chores. The government also plans to create a special unit that would deal exclusively with monitoring remote work.

Chilean authorities have also decided to require employers to cover all costs of operation and maintenance of equipment employee on remote. In addition, the new law, inspired by the pandemic, the government of this South American country ordered that if an employee works from his home or home of a third ��Itza, his superiors are forbidden to enter there without permission. But an employee always has the right to free entrance to the building. In addition, by signing the employee agreement on the transition to the remote mode, the management company is obliged within 15 days to register the agreement with the Ministry of labour.

before the start of the pandemic in the fashion industry, some large companies began to gradually move to a regime of remote work, allowing its employees at least a few days a week to stay at home. But one us company called Automattic, gave the world famous platform initially refused the offices and today has at least some corporate buildings. Many of its employees work from home, but there are many of those who, as told by the Creator of Automattic Matt Mullenweg, are downright nomadic lifestyle, moving from place to place in their interests. Today, Automattic employs people from 77 countries and all of them say in total, 93 different languages. The authorities only one thing matters to their subordinates was good wifi and a comfortable place to work. To do this, when applying for a job new employee begins to “scholarship” on the arrangement of your workplace. To spend as he may wish – for a new Desk, chair and trash can or an entire room. The company understands that, despite all the charm of “udalenka”, she does have one significant drawback – the lack of personal contact. So, as told Mullenweg for portal, TED, at least once a year all employees gather for a week to work together in one place to support communication in the team.
