Hi! Today I will explain to you what remote work is. What are its pros and cons for the employee and employer. We distinguish between remote work in two ways one very popular way is the so-called TELEPRATION and here regularity must be maintained that is, we have saved the relevant contract or employee application precise guidelines from the employer and we have regularity here the second option is the HOME OFFICE work system that is remote work at home or other place then we do not have regularity that is, for example, we work 2 days at home, once 3 days at home, once 1 or a whole week at the office designated by the employer so we have two ways It is worth noting that an employee using remote work has the same duties and rights as a full-time employee that is, he has the right to equal treatment to use various training, promotions and the like The employer has the right to control the teleworker at the place of telework that is, he can verify that he is actually doing the work can inventory, service and maintain its equipment who was entrusted to an employee, such as a laptop, cell phone, And what is very important, the employer can verify issues related to occupational health and safety (OHS) at the workplace, indicated by the employee. The main advantages of working remotely for an employee are, of course, saving time and money especially for commuting and returning from work in addition, an employee can look after a child and an elderly person while working remotely so remote work is a very good solution for people who have the right skills possibilities especially that on the labor market, many specialists are lacking in various industries Employers, of course, use this because the duties they assign to employees they are made, regardless of whether the work is done stationary or remotely Especially now, when with the increase in technology, various types of opportunities to use the Internet Such work is fully efficient If there is a need, as you can see We can use a shirt and change quickly at home for example, important teleconferencing (video conferencing using a camera) with a manager or director Of course, only if we use video conferencing then the webcam on our computer is used but if it is only a teleconference without a video camera of course, headphones with a microphone are enough For the employer, the employee’s remote work also has minor disadvantages because the employee has no employer “on hand” so-called “on call” So some responsibilities to commission him must write in the form of an e-mail (e-mail), or call him or make a teleconference (e.g. Skype) or video conference In addition, the employer, if he limits the amount of resources that he transfers to an employee for remote work must take into account that the employee may not have various types of additional equipment (programs, licenses, color printer, scanner, etc.) which for example in the office is such as: scanner, photocopier and other specialized devices So to sum up, remote work has a lot of advantages, especially for an employee but also for the employer because when an employee works remotely it is the employer that does not have to maintain a special place for the employee (teleworker) it can only be a temporary place (open space, office or desk for remote workers) where for example an employee (teleworker) appears for example in the company once a week it all depends on the arrangements in the contract with the employee What is needed for remote work, teleworking? The employer should provide appropriate equipment such as a laptop, mobile or desktop computer take this equipment to the employee, if necessary, to the place of telework (remote work, e.g. at home) Configure hardware, i.e. install an antivirus program Configure remote connection capability via the Internet for example, configuration of VPN (Virtual Private Network – encrypted connection over the Internet with the employer’s infrastructure) In addition, the employee receives appropriate guidelines from the employer how he is to work and what necessary regulations he must comply with, such as Occupational Health and Safety issues related to the GDPR (Regulation on the Protection of Personal Data) and others. The employee on his side must of course provide resources such as: electricity, Internet Unless it is agreed with the employer that the employer transfers the Internet in the form of, for example, a USB modem – GSM (mobile internet) so there is no problem here possibly, it transmits a mobile phone, a smartphone that has the option of sharing the Internet via Wi-Fi So-called Wi-Fi Router So Internet sharing is possible anywhere for a computer, whether it is a desktop (PC – Personal Computer), in which a WiFi USB adapter will be installed, or to a PCI port or to a mobile computer, i.e. a so-called laptop or tablet Remote work is a very good and modern solution and for the employee and the employer however, it requires self-discipline from the employee that is, the ability to organize a workplace separating private and business activities and, of course WORKING is the priority when performing work Thank you for your attention!
