The executive watches the yoyo of teleworkers like milk on the fire.
According to new figures from the Ministry of Labor, resulting from the survey on teleworking carried out from April 1 to 4 and that we unveil, the call to systematize remote work launched by President Emmanuel Macron and hammered by Jean Castex in Parliament a week ago to curb the epidemic in businesses, have visibly hit the mark.
In a few days, the number of employees with 100% remote work has gained 6 points more compared to March.
They were 37% in full-time telework at the beginning of April, against 31% in March and 30% in January.
“Teleworking has strengthened in a few days across the country.
The figures are at their highest since January, proof that employees and employers have heard our call.
It is an effective way to curb the epidemic and we must more than ever continue our efforts ”declares Elisabeth Borne, the Minister of Labor.
Another indicator showing this progression, this time within the working population who can telework easily because their tasks allow it, 67% say they do it in April against 65% in March and 64% in January and 70% by way of comparison in November. .
These trends are obviously even clearer (up nine points) in the 19 departments which were already subject to health restrictions.

Overall, the average number of days of teleworking over a week has started to rise again.
Employees who do not go to the office and stay at home do so 3.6 days / week against 3.4 in March.
These figures are even higher in the 19 departments mentioned above: 3.7 days and even 3.8 days in Île-de-France.
The call for the collective responsibility of the executive, added to the joint pressure exerted by the services of the State and the Ministry of Labor, is starting to pay off.
The setting to music of the presidential speech is based on action plans to generalize teleworking which have been defined by the prefects throughout the territory.
At the level of the labor inspectorate, according to the latest figures from the General Directorate of Labor (DGT), pressure is now being put on the whole territory.
More than 29,000 checks were carried out, each time examining the measures put in place in the company with regard to the sanitary protocol.
