BEERG Newsletter - Future Work: France a laggard

According to an Ifop study for the French think-tank Fondation Jean-Jaurès, only 29% of French workers say they work remotely “at least once a week.” That compares to 51% of Germans, 50% of Italians, 42% of British workers and 36% of Spaniards. 

Even those in France who report working remotely appear to do so far less often than their European neighbours. While in Italy, 30% of workers said they teleworked for four to five days a week and 17% for two to three days, in France, the figures are 11% and 14%, respectively. “French people are, most of the time, reluctant to change,” says Sonia Levillain, a professor at the IÉSEG School of Management in Lille, observing “This is a stereotype, but it’s also a reality.”
