The pandemic failed to make it a routine for Ukrainians to work remotely: employees are getting back to offices. According to various data, between three and six percent of Ukrainian employers are currently offering remote jobs.
As reported by Work.ua and Jooble, the number of remote jobs offered in April 2020 was between seven and eight percent of the total number of jobs. It is twice as many as offered now.

«We can see no mass transition to a remote form of employment so far. A deeper analysis of the labor market shows that almost half of the remote jobs are offered by IT companies»,
