The real growth of smart working in the Kovid year

The social remote measures introduced in response to the AGI-Kovid-19 pandemic have prompted many people to work from home. By 2020, 12.3% of people in the European Union between the ages of 15 and 64 will be working from home, This share has remained at about 5% for the last ten years. This is what comes out of the published Eurostat data.

In 2020, the Italian percentage was 12.2%. In previous years, the share of self-employed people who regularly worked from home was more than regular employees. However, when the share of employees in smart working increased from 3.2 percent in 2019 to 10.8 percent, the gap narrowed in 2020, while the share of the self-employed increased somewhat: from 19.4 percent in 2019 to 22 percent in 2020.

There are different trends depending on the age and gender of the workers. In 2020, it was reported that a large proportion (13.2%) of women (11.5%) regularly work from home. Compared to other age groups, by 2020 young people are less likely to work from home: only 6.3% of 15-24 year olds, 13% of 25-49 year olds and 12.4% of 50- to 64-year-olds.

Among countries, Finland, with 25.1 percent, tops the list of EU member states for domestic work. It is followed by Luxembourg (23.1%) and Ireland (21.5%). In contrast, Bulgaria (1.2%), Romania (2.5%), Croatia (3.1%) and Hungary (3.6%) have the lowest percentage of reported domestic workers.
