Glas Poduzetnika Survey: What % of Croatian Private Sector Can Work at Home?

Total Croatia News


April 15, 2020 – More detailed information from the Glas Poduzetnika Association (Voice of Entrepreneurs) – how much of the private sector can actually work from home?

A large number of companies are currently forcibly closed, due to the fight against coronavirus. While we wait for the specific scenarios and forecasts as for how long this situation might last, we thought it would be good to have some information relevant for making decisions, also considering the economic side of the equation. Some professions and companies have made a successful transition to work from home, while some are in the process of doing so. We asked our members, “Can you work from home?” These are their answers:

Even 61% of private-sector employees do not have any possibility of working from home. Thus, they depend on the support of the state or on this situation to pass before returning to the old business models. 19% of participants accounted for the possibility of full-time work at home, and an additional 17% advised that they can partly work from home and do only some of their tasks. We should not forget that 3% of employees say that they can work from home, but that there is simply no work.


Can you work from home?

I cannot

I can

I can, but partly

I could if there would be work

In addition to the fact that more than 60% of employees do not have the opportunity to earn their salary and sustain themselves, it should be noted that some who work experience problems with charging for their work at this stage. Because of this, we believe that it is necessary to start working on measure loosening scenarios as soon as possible when the health situation allows. More importantly, it is essential to inform them transparently and promptly, so that everyone can prepare as much as possible for an uncertain period, whether it is another 3 or 12 months or more.
