Malta has emerged as a formidable player in the European Union’s remote working landscape – clinching an enviable spot in the upper echelons of the remote working revolution, standing shoulder to shoulder with economic powerhouses like Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany, and France.
The winds of change are sweeping across the Maltese workforce, as a recent analysis by BNP Paribas Real Estate Ireland (BNPPRE) has revealed.
While Ireland may have claimed the top spot in the EU for the adoption of remote working, Malta has firmly established its presence as a trailblazer in the rapid shift from traditional office-based work to flexible, remote arrangements. The Netherlands may boast the highest percentage of its workforce engaged in remote work (over 50%), but it is Malta that has taken the lead in embracing the remote work phenomenon with remarkable alacrity.
A closer examination of Eurostat data brings Malta’s prowess into sharper focus. Malta ranks second in the EU when it comes to dedicating workspace to remote working, transcending the confines of the conventional workplace. This insightful analysis, conducted by BNP Paribas Real Estate, highlights Malta’s forward-looking approach to modernising work environments.
The COVID-19 pandemic acted as a catalyst for the remote working revolution, forcing organisations to embrace new ways of conducting business. The international analysis emphasises that the shift to remote work is not just advantageous for employees, but also benefits employers by reducing the need for certain physical office spaces and resources.
