Greeks Adapting Fast to Digital Transformation Brought by COVID-19 Pandemic

April 24, 2020

ATHENS – Greek workers have successfully adjusted to the digital transformation and to working remotely, KPMG said in its barometer report on labour conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic. It noted that workers and particularly younger generations seemed ready to move towards a different work model with a greater exploitation of technology.

The majority of workers participating in the survey, conducted in the period March 3-April 5, are highly educated and work as executives at various levels. The results do not show any significant variations in the way workers view the positives and negatives of teleworking and are not significantly affected by age, gender, career, size of company, sector, or whether they work for a Greek or multinational company.

A 95 pct of respondents said they took a positive view of the efficiency of measures implemented by their companies in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. An 88 pct of workers working at home said it was a satisfactory or very satisfactory form of work, 81 pct said they have adapted to this form of work and only a 6.0 pct said they did not know if they could adapt to it. Of the respondents, 67 pct said they have a positive or very positive stance towards any possible introduction of remote work, a percentage reaching 76 pct among younger age groups of up to 30 years old, and falling to 56 pct for workers aged above 60 years old.


ATHENS – While the New Democracy government is easing health restrictions for rabid anti-vaxxers, those fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may need a fourth shot in the autumn.
