The topic of homeworking has become very actual during the pandemic of covid-19. This pandemic showed the unpreparedness of companies for this modern way of working. At the same time, however, it contributed to rapid reaction and the introduction of homeworking into normal work processes. The aim of this paper is to find out to what extent and in which economic sectors the introduction of telecommuting has proved feasible. What benefits does it bring to employees and employers. And then to evaluate to what extent homeworking has an impact on the efficiency of employee performance. The analysis was based on data from the Czech Statistical Office’s statistical survey as well as a survey conducted by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. The data will be classified and evaluated using classification analysis. The results of this analysis have shown that the covid-19 pandemic has contributed to a faster uptake of home working even in organisations that did not use this way of working before. It also showed that the majority of employees interviewed would welcome a “hybrid” employment model in the future, where they would work from home 2-3 days a week and work in the office the remaining days. An evaluation of employee effectiveness yielded the finding that most managers were satisfied with the work-from-home arrangements in their organization. Based on this work, the use of homeworking can be recommended to some extent at some sectors in the future.
Key words: homeworking / work from home / work outside the workplace / employee efficiency / work performance
