Survey finds most Greek execs prefer teleworking

Three out of five Greek corporate officials opt for flexible forms of working such as telecommuting, according to a global survey conducted by Regus in 90 countries.

Internationally, some 48 percent of senior staff work remotely for at least half of the week, with this rate climbing to 61 percent in Greece, the Regus survey found.

While many executives may worry about offering incentives for teleworking and managing staff who do so, about 73 percent of Greek respondents (against a global average of 55 percent) said they believe that the successful management of teleworking employees can be achieved without any problems and that a significant number of corporations are becoming stricter with the management of staff who work remotely.

Interestingly, 39 percent of those who took part in the survey believe that new employees become more responsible through teleworking.
