Just under 1 in 2 new graduates with professional education worked from home in 2020

Neuchâtel, 09.05.2022 - For the majority of PET graduates (graduation year 2016), the employment situation in 2020 changed at least temporarily due to measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. 45% of them worked from home, 17% of employed graduates were affected by a reduction of working hours and for around a third of self-employed persons, the COVID-19 pandemic led to a decrease in income from employment and a decline in orders. These are the main results from the Federal Statistical Office’s (FSO) latest publication.
