Over the course of a year and a half, the business has shown “incredible flexibility” in responding quickly to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus, according to the results of a study on the SuperJob job search service. The study noted that the extension of non-working days in Moscow will not affect the work of companies. Due to the increase in the number of people infected with COVID-19 in the capital, the weekend will last until June 20.
“The announced non-working days did not affect the work of Moscow companies in any way. According to SuperJob, on June 14-15, the activity of employers remains at the level of the previous week, when non-working days were not announced, ”says the SuperJob message received by Kommersant. According to the service, in a year and a half, Russian business responded promptly to the introduction of restrictions and rebuilt its processes for mass remote control.
SuperJob reports that about 47% of employees of Russian companies approve of the actions of employers during a pandemic, 15% of employees criticize the decisions of the management. On June 13-19, almost all commercial organizations continue to work as usual, increasing the number of employees working remotely. 34% of companies will return only part of their employees to their offices, 32% of companies will extend the remote work mode for employees already working in this way.
In Moscow, due to the extension of non-working days, it was recommended that employers re-transfer at least 30% of employees to remote work. From 13 to 20 June, visiting zoos, food courts and children’s playrooms is prohibited in the capital, and restaurants and cafes are closed from 23:00 to 6:00. In the Moscow region, employers were prohibited from admitting workers without personal respiratory protection to the workplace, with the exception of vaccinated citizens.
