Most Russian companies are going to leave the udalenka for some employees even after a pandemic, a poll from the Bitrix24 analytical center showed the results.

Partly 59% of organizations are going to leave him, completely – 15%. 625 companies took part in the Bitrix24 survey. Among the decisive advantages of the udalenka, they called the saving of time for employees on the road, and not at all a decrease in rental for offices, as might be expected.

Many large companies have not lined up the logical chain of "lifting restrictions – returning to offices." Trends here are dictated by foreign IT giants: Facebook, Google and Twitter, who decided to leave employees at home until the end of the year. A partial return to employees at Apple's offices began.
The largest corporations in the world behind the scenes show everyone else, "as it should." And when the business was allowed to return to the offices, it turned out that he didn’t really need it, says Sergey Ryzhikov, co-founder of Bitrix24.
Sergey Ryzhikov CEO of Bitrix 24, “At the beginning of this story, we transferred 400 people to remote work, and at the beginning of this month we decided whether we would return them or not. At the moment, we decided to leave people to work in a remote format for now, but we offered those who have difficult home conditions or not have the opportunity to work normally comfortably, to return. We also conducted a survey among our employees: how would they like in the future? There are a number of positive stories related to udalenka and many employees would like to come to the office for one or two days in order to maintain joint communication, communication, but at the same time get a few days when they can not go anywhere and work remotely format. They note that there is an increase in productivity. ”
About the increase in productivity on a remote site and US personnel say the result of mass polls. They are confident that more and more employees will work from home three or more days a week. First of all, these are IT-specialists, call centers, financial services. Millions of Americans working from home will change their infrastructure: at least there will be less transport on the streets, and as a maximum, part of the service business will become unclaimed.

Business FM columnist Semyon Novoprudsky believes that a pandemic will have no less impact on lifestyles than the great industrial revolution in its time. Top managers will remain in the offices, who will coordinate the work of personnel in different parts of the world. I recall a line from the song of Sergei Shnurov: "You are lucky, you are not like everyone else – you work in the office." And this is a dangerous trend, says Semyon Novoprudsky.
Semyon Novoprudsky independent expert, columnist Business FM “For example, there will never be completely remote medicine, there will never be remote food production, we will not be able to get food from the computer, that is, people who are involved in real business in offices, in the fields, in hospitals – These are people who are engaged in a critical business. It is very important that there is no discrimination of people who will somehow work in the real sector and without any remoteness, that is, this new line of discrimination, which is beginning to be outlined quietly, including in assessments of different work, is very dangerous. But in any case, it is obvious that one way or another we are waiting for the next change in lifestyle. ”
However, some experts believe that after worldwide testing the remote countries will come to a hybrid format. Russia is no exception here. Next week, the State Duma will consider a project on remote work. Key change: the introduction of the concepts of remote work, as well as its temporary and combined modes. The lion's share of the Russian labor market will definitely need these positions, assured headhunter and HR consultant Alena Vladimirskaya.
Alyona Vladimirskaya headhunter and HR consultant, founder of Alyona Vladimirskaya’s Career Laboratory “Who will be left in the distance?” First of all, these are the areas of IT and digital, that is, what is quietly digitized and transferred to remote work – accountants, lawyer, HR specialists. That is, those who do not care so much where you have a job. Partially sales managers. Then everything is very optional. The important thing is that there is a continuous cycle, there is production, etc., where it is impossible to work remotely. The privilege will be not work in the office and not work remotely, but just a hybrid character. That is, when a person can work in the office a certain number of days a week, and a certain amount – remotely. "
