A leading study has found that 30 percent of employees in Hungary have flexible working hours.
According to data published by Randstad, the number is healthy but below the international level of 40 percent.
The study also found that globally 68 percent of employees work in traditional settings, but 44 percent said that flexible work conditions are on the rise.
In Hungary, 74 percent still work in traditional settings while 30 percent have experienced a shift towards flexible work.
According to MTI, less than half of Hungarian employees said that their companies provided the means necessary for working at home.
The data shows that India and China are world leaders in introducing flexible working hours and remote work. In central Europe, Austria leads with 50 percent of respondents working remotely or in flexible hours.
Randstad states that flexible hours and remote work are seen as factors reducing fluctuations in manpower and raising efficiency, creativity and employee satisfaction.
In Hungary, the opinions of over 400 employees aged between 18 and 65 were sought for the study.
