93% of Spaniards consider teleworking to be a key tool for work-life balance.

A report highlights the most relevant data on teleworking and work-life balance.

On the occasion of the International Day of Teleworking has delivered the report ?Teleworking, work-life balance at your computer? to the Minister of Labour and Social Economy, Mrs. Yolanda Díaz, who last July 22nd decided to dissociate teleworking from conciliation in the Draft Bill of Teleworking Law in order to "avoid perpetuating the roles of upbringing and care for women".

However, the data extracted  show strong support for teleworking as an ideal work-life balance measure, with 93% of those surveyed believing that telecommuting is an alternative way to achieve work-life balance.. 

96% of the citizens consulted believe that reconciling and teleworking is not the same as working lessIn contrast, 71% have had the experience of working remotely and most commented that they even worked more hours than in their face-to-face job.

The vast majority of the more than 1,000 respondents, both men and women alike, agreed that evaluate productivity through a management-by-objectives system that encourages worker responsibility and allows for the flexibility to attend to family matters.. In addition, in the context of a second wave of COVID-19 infections and forced quarantines of school-age children, the urgency of regulating telework with a family perspective is evident.

Our platform is at the disposal of the institutions, political parties, trade unions, employers and social agents to collaborate and work together on a balanced and conciliatory legislation for this type of work. A clear political and social commitment is needed, reflected in legislation that gives priority to the reconciliation of work and family life, and thanks to teleworking a definitive step can be taken to solve this great need of Spanish families.
