More French people have resorted to teleworking, especially at 100%, in early April compared to March after repeated calls from the government to do so, according to an interactive Harris poll conducted for the Ministry of Labor
“Teleworking was reinforced in a few days across the country. The figures are at their highest since January, proof that employees and employers have heard our call. It is an effective means to curb the epidemic and it is necessary more than ever to continue the efforts ”, commented the Minister of Labor, Elisabeth Borne, Thursday in Le Parisien.
According to this study carried out from April 1 to 4 (therefore before the closure of schools but while 19 departments were already subject to restrictions), 37% of workers teleworked (54% saying that their profession can be carried out by teleworking) against 35 % during the week of March 8 to 14 and 41% in November during the second confinement. 15% did so full time compared to 13% in March and 20% in November.
