Another 37 percent of those surveyed admitted that the remote work format allows them to spend more time with their family.

One in five companies in the country reported that telecommuting workers have become worse off, and many have begun to quit due to burnout. The results of the Rostelecom survey showed that 40 percent of firms recognized the dependence of financial performance on the level of employee performance.
