Only 0.3 per cent of Romanian employees usually work from home, the survey found. It was lower than in 2016, when the percentage stood at 0.4 per cent. The result is slightly better when looking at the female employee group, with a 0.5 per cent work from home ratio.

Luxembourg is at the other end of the scale, with 9 per cent of its employees usually working from home. The Netherlands, Finland and Denmark come next in the ranking, with 8.5 per cent, 8.4 per cent and 6.2 per cent, respectively.

The survey looked at the 15 to 74 age group, made of employees who usually work from home, according to Romania-Insider. Romania is also last for the number of self – employed persons who worked from home, with 0.8 per cent.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands has 45.3 per cent self-employed persons working from home. It is followed by Finland, Luxembourg and Denmark. With 1.5 million self-employed persons and a total of 8.6 million employed persons, Romania ranks rather high for their number: 7th place. Italy had 4.9 million self-employed, followed by UK: 4.7 million, Germany – 4 million, France and Spain, with 3 million self-employed each, and Poland, with 2.9 million self-employed people.
