the Format of remote work has become so common over the last six months that most companies are not eager to return employees to the offices. Many extend udalenku monthly, and some immediately announced their readiness to refrain from office. If in April, when there was an emergency transition to work from home half of the companies were sure that won’t last in this mode and month, and steadily to work from home was ready only in five organizations, now the situation has changed, say in the recruiting service HeadHunter. Half of employers are willing to extend udalenku for a year or two or make it permanent. And only 15% reported that they need the most in a month to get back to the offices.
According to Safonov, it is too early to speak about return of the regime of working time to the usual forms: “There are fears of a second wave of the pandemic in the fall, and that means some employers will prefer not to risk it. And, where possible, there will still be remote forms of work organization” – he said.
the Head of service of the SuperJob Alexei Zakharov predicts that a third of office employees who visited the offices to the pandemic, the more there will never come back. According to him, all communications have already been established, and it infrastructure safely allows you to do this.
According to the Ministry of labor, now in remote mode employs 9% of employees of organizations, the maximum peak of the pandemic was 11%. Experts propose to treat these figures with caution. According to Zakharov, even before all related COVID-19 stories, about one-third of employees actually were on remote, appearing in the offices once or twice a week. Approximately the same number of people who can work in the office and at home. For them there is no much difference there, so they willingly accept any decision of the management. And there’s about 15% of workers who wanted to return from udalenka simply because they are uncomfortable to work at home – no space, no conditions. As a result, believes Zakharov, in most cases, those who want to go to work, to do it will allow. And for others, will establish one or two public days in the week, the rest of the time they will work from wherever they want.
“of Course, that was in March – may, we are unlikely to see. And health care is able to respond more quickly to the virus, and the economy cannot afford such limitations: the risk to slip into severe crisis, not overcome the previous problems, is very high. Therefore, the most likely scenario of labor organization is a combination of different forms: full, partial presence in the office at the work place) and remote-format”, – told “RG” Safonov. And some types of work functions, as evidenced by surveys of employers, even going into permanent dis��antinny format. It accounting, analyst, part consulting, call centers, small companies, etc. “will be Less face-to-face meetings that many workers will be glad to hear the time saving is obvious, and this format does not allow water in the mortar to pound. So gradually everything that does not require direct contact to remain on remote,” adds Safonov.
a Lot of chances media. “The editorial staff have always worked in mixed mode, with the exception of members of the editorial Board, – explained the chief editor of “Expert” Tatiana Gurova. We did not change anything neither in the spring and are not going to change in the fall. Fully remote mode prevents creative activity of the newspaper”.
Many are going to decide to return to the offices in the fall – fear a new wave of coronavirus. “Until September we are working remotely,” – said the head of the press service of “Yandex” Ilya Grabowski. To the question, do you plan to leave employees on remote in autumn, a company spokesman said that “while various options are being discussed”. Staff Mail.ru Group, Lamoda and “Kaspersky Lab” will also be back in the office until 1 September. “We made the decision from 15 July to open an office in Moscow for those colleagues who for whatever reason cannot or do not want to work remotely, – the Director for work with personnel “Kaspersky Lab” Marina Alekseeva. – But it is not more than 10% of all employees.” Rambler employees go to the office two or three times a week with the observance of a number of precautions. The decision about how work is organized in the autumn, there will be later on the basis of epidemiological situation.
Foreign companies, unlike ours, of its commitment to the remote secret is not doing. Apple urged people in USA don’t wait for a full return to the offices until the end of the year, Microsoft hopes to return to the offices in January 2021 as Amazon. Employees of Twitter and after the end of the pandemic will continue to work from home, Facebook allowed employees to stay home until June 2021, and Google – to July 2021.
Not only is it willing and able to work remotely. Banks in ordinary life incredibly slow and conservative organizations recognized the expertise of remote operation in a pandemic successful and made the decision on the part of staff to transfer to udalenku indefinitely. They will continue to work from home or will come to the offices every day even after the threat of the virus will disappear. Some of the rooms in offices will go under reduction. Sberbank (276,6 thousand employees by the beginning of July) from 1 September, is planning to introduce a new format of work, which involves finding the remote up to 30% of the employees regardless of the epidemiological situation. Alfa-Bank and no plans to return to the old format, when 100% of employees worked in the office. Since March, the Bank PEroared on udalenku more than 9 thousand people – 80% of staff excluding the branch network. “The new format has shown the first results: the rate of work on the projects remained at the same level”, – said the representative of the Bank.
“picture of the world changes depending on the dynamics behavior of the virus. Now the governments of most countries continue to take operational measures to protect its population. And remote work is one way to save the people”, – adds the head of the Federation Council Committee on social policy Inna Svyatenko. In the autumn, when added seasonal diseases, it is especially important to stay healthy.
Rospotrebnadzor until no plans to revise guidance to employers in the workplace. It remains important to maintain social distancing in office and heightened sanitation. “The situation is under control, depending on the development of the epidemiological situation in the autumn-winter period can be made additional recommendations,” – said the Agency.
