In May 2022, the state of epidemic in relation to SARS-CoV-2 virus infections was cancelled in Poland. At the same time, the state of epidemic threat was announced, which will be in force until further notice. Despite the cancellation of the state of epidemic, there are still solutions in force to prevent and counter the spread of the virus and combat the disease caused by it. These solutions are also applicable to the labour market. Among them, for instance, is the possibility of working from outside a permanent workplace, that is remote work. The data presented in this publication were obtained from the Labour Demand Survey[1].

[1] The collected data come from the voluntary responses of reporting units to four additional questions attached on the Reporting Portal to ‘the Labour Demand Survey’. The Labour Demand Survey is conducted using the representative method on a quarterly basis. According to the scope of the survey, it covers notional economy entities and their local units employing at least 1 person. Approximately half of the units that completed the reports answered the questions about the impact of the pandemic situation on the way enterprises operate and behave.
