According to the governor, the pandemic and the introduction of restrictive measures have led businesses to reconsider their attitude to alternative options for organizing the workflow. “Even, it would seem, in conservative industries related to production, strict security requirements, including information, employees are already being offered the opportunity to stay in remote employment without going to the office. This practice, apparently, will become more and more popular, ” the head of the region said.

These are, for example, the manager of esports events, web design and development, visual communications, graphic design, public relations on the Internet. “We are sure that there will be a demand for such competencies, such a format of employment.
