The Public Policy Research Centre organized an online conference “Svevideće oko” (“An all-seeing Eye”) on the topic of remote work and employee monitoring on February 28, 2022. At the invitation of the Centre, Partner Tijana Žunić Marić participated in the first session dedicated to these present topics.
Since its establishment in 2010, Public Policy Research Centre has become one of the most relevant think-tank organizations through its extensive research and public advocacy, which deals with issues such as the future of work in Serbia, inclusive security and the creation of sustainable partnerships focused on social change, among others.
According to the Center’s research data, during 2020, 9% of the workforce in Serbia has shifted to remote work, and while we await the updated official data for 2021, it is believed that this number is even higher. This practice has enabled employers to monitor their employees with various information and communication solutions. Based on the results of the new research conducted by the Public Policy Research Center, it can be concluded that employers and employees are not yet aware of their rights and obligations related to remote work. The mentioned research also showed that 75% of workers who work remotely are not aware that their performance is monitored remotely.
