Higher share of employed persons who worked all days in the week at the employer’s location was a consequence of a lower share of absent from work

From mid-June to the beginning of August 2021, the share of absent from work increased. The highest increase was from the beginning to mid-July (by 7 percentage points) and from mid-July to the beginning of August (by 7 percentage points). At that time, a quarter of employed persons were absent from work. By the end of the summer holidays, the share decreased: by mid-August by 6 percentage points and then by the beginning of September by additional 10 percentage points. At the end of August/beginning of September, the share was 10% and it remained the same until mid-September.

While the share of absent from work increased, the share of employed persons who worked all days in the week at the employer’s location decreased. And vice versa. While the share of absent decreased, the share of those who were at the employer’s location increased. However, it should be taken into account that the lower share of employed persons who worked all days in the week at the employer’s location was a consequence of a higher share of those absent from work. If we take into consideration only employed persons who were not absent from work, the share of those who worked all days in the week at the employer’s location increased by less than a percentage point from the beginning of July to mid-July (to 87%). By mid-August, the share increased by additional two percentage points (to 89%). Among employed persons who were not absent from work, the share of those who worked all days in the week at the employer’s location was 87% in mid-September, while the share of those who worked all days in the week from home was 3%. At that time, the share of employed persons who worked partially on location and partially from home was 9%.



Higher share of employed persons who were not absent from work and worked from home at least one day in the week

The share of employed persons who were not absent from work and worked from home at least one day in the week slightly decreased from the end of June to mid-August (from 13% to 11%). At the end of August/beginning of September, the share increased again to 13% and it remained the same until mid-September.
