Remote Workers Wanted for 2022 National Survey

Employees are asked to take part in the annual ‘National Remote Work in Ireland’ survey.

The study will be carried out by researchers from the Whitaker Institute at NUI Galway and the Western Development Commission.

The study will collect data on employees’ experiences and preferences for remote work and assess how remote work is affecting their career choices.

Building on two previous annual national surveys conducted by the team, the 2022 research will provide insights into how remote work has changed employees’ job and work experiences.

Community and Rural Development Minister Heather Humphreys encourages workers to take part in the survey.

“A lot of great work has been done in recent years to support remote workers and employers. It’s imperative that we don’t lose momentum now,” he said.

“This survey will help ensure we have the data to make the right decisions in this crucial area,” he added.

The 2020 and 2021 annual surveys received more than 12,000 responses from employees working remotely across the country.

“The findings have impacted policy, including the national remote work strategy,” said Professor Alma McCarthy of NUI Galway.

“The way we work has changed dramatically since the covid-19 pandemic. It is timely to capture trends, preferences and impacts on career choice two years later,” he added.
