72% of European employees think remote working offers benefits for work-life balance

72% of European employees believe remote working offers a better work-life balance. At present, 27% of European employees do so on a regular basis. That's equal to 3.1 days a week on average. 16% of employees worked remotely prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, which at the time meant an average of 2.6 days a week remote working. These are the results of a European survey of 4,371 companies carried out by the leading European HR and payroll service provider SD Worx.
