Ireland Has The Top Shift To Remote Work In The EU

Ireland has come out top in the EU regarding moving to remote work., according to a survey by BNP Paribas Real Estate Ireland (BNPPRE).

More than three times as many people work from home in Ireland than they did in 2019. 27.9% of Irish workers operate in desk-based sectors compared with the EU average of 24.6%. 

The Netherlands has the highest percentage of people involved in working remotely at over 50%. Still, Ireland is the leading EU country in the acceleration of moving from office-based work since the pandemic.

The number of desk-based jobs in Ireland has increased by 15% since the Covid pandemic began in March 2020, which is more than double the EU average of 6.9%.

Along with Ireland, the other countries featured in the top five in this category are Malta, the Netherlands, Germany, and France.

Irish organizations typically seek less but better-quality office space. This is driven by sustainability objectives and a need to optimize the employee experience.

This research also found that 40% of Irish workers would be put off taking a new job if there were not sufficient flexible working options available.
