Teleworking in the public service is progressing and a “historic peak” was observed on Thursday January 6, estimated Minister Amélie de Montchalin, Friday January 14, during a trip to Bobigny (Seine-Saint-Denis). Last week, 38% of agents who can telework did so “three days or more” compared to 30% during the last period when teleworking was mandatory, “in the spring”, she said, while ” 68% of them teleworked at least one day” compared to 55% in the spring.

The company health protocol provides since January 3, for three weeks, that employers set “a minimum number of three days of teleworking per week, for positions that allow it”. “Enormous progress” has been made in the public service in terms of teleworking for two years, underlined Amélie de Montchalin, going from 90,000 people equipped to telework to “more than 400,000”.

Avoid “a degraded public service for the French”

The minister had announced last week her desire to enforce telework in the state civil service. She also indicated that “the incidence rate among public officials is not different from the incidence rate in the national population”, during this visit to the social action service of the prefecture and then to the Primary Fund of ‘Health Insurance.

A follow-up takes place “every week” with the Prime Minister “so that we can detect, anticipate, manage this continuity (of the public service, editor’s note), to ensure that the absences of public officials do not lead to a public service degraded for the French”, assured Ms. de Montchalin.
