Gender Equality in Academia and Research
Updated regulations on remote work, care leave (up to three days without approval) – National Institute of Chemistry (SI)
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, some organisations had increased the availability of telework for a larger number of their employees (ZRC SAZU), or extended the option to work from home for a higher number of days (National Institute of Chemistry). This facilitates researchers to balance work and family life and organise their own time. The measure targeted employees of all genders, but is more beneficial to those with caring duties. During the first COVID-19 lockdown, the National Institute of Chemistry organised a series of webinars on how employees could balance their work, family and personal well-being.
