SWIFT-SME: Mapping and stocktaking the phenomenon of smart working
This survey seeks to collect qualitative data on how European businesses coped with the transition towards smart and teleworking solutions after the outbreak of COVID-19.

The following questionnaire consists of 14 questions that we kindly invite you to answer; this will not take longer than 10 minutes.

About the context:
According to the analysts from the Joint Research Center of the European Commission, before COVID-19 only 15% of the European workforce was working remotely; the advent of the pandemic hence represents a challenge for those workers who have to shift to teleworking.

While large companies have been able to re-design their internal structures relatively quickly and efficiently, the transition towards teleworking was more challenging for micro and small enterprises.

As part of the SWIFT SME Project we are collecting views and opinions of those workers who experienced the transition towards smart working to gauge their level of preparedness and satisfaction with this innovative way of working. Your inputs will guide us in the development of training and operational tools for SMEs to more adequately embrace smart working.

Thank you very much for your collaboration.
