Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present the opinions of young people in the area of information exchange in a remote work system. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced companies to make massive use of remote work opportunities. This phenomenon made employers confront all the advantages and disadvantages of this form of work. It also revealed how many problems in terms of work organisation and organisation of information exchange are caused by this form of work. In order to investigate this issue, a study was carried out, the aim of which was to find out about the opinions of young people regarding remote work. The research was conducted in December 2021 on a sample of young people from Generation Z. For the research purposes a Likert scale-based questionnaire was used. The following tests were used for the purpose of the data analysis in the STATISTICA software: the Kruskal-Wallis ANOVA on ranks test, the Mann-Whitney test and the Pearson's chi-square test. The strength of correlations between the variables was evaluated by means of Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient. The results of the research reveal the relations in the area of information exchange in remote working conditions, and the preferences and experiences of young people in relation to remote learning and remote work. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that the organisation of information exchange is an important factor determining the effectiveness of remote work. The expectations of Generation Z in this respect allow for better organisation of the information flow.
