BAuA-Working Time Survey: Telework in Germany

Advancements in information and communication technology enable many employees to carry out their work without a fixed place of work. However, the BAuA-Working Time Survey shows that only a small proportion of employees in Germany actually have an agreement on telework or home office (12%). These employees experience both job resources (e. g. self-determined working hours or social support from colleagues) and job demands (e. g. overtime work or extended availability). A much larger proportion of employees work from home at least occasionally without a company agreement (31%). In this group, the stressful demands of work predominate. This is often accompanied by lower levels of work-life balance satisfaction.
