Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, remote work has been one of the most significant changes in the corporate world. Unexpectedly, on every continent around the globe, thousands of people were locked in their homes, thus preventing the spread of the virus.
Consequently, this issue impacted the income of thousands of workers, generating additional costs and new expenses, including higher electricity bills due to the excessive use of electronic devices and food, which was usually provided by companies through local cafeterias or tickets that they could be used in establishments such as restaurants and snack bars to afford meals.
Amid high costs, Turkey becomes a haven for remote workers
Expenses vary from country to country, making some places the most expensive when it comes to working in a home office format. A recent survey by comparethemarket.com calculated expenses such as broadband costs and utilities in different countries, which can accumulate over a month. The results showed that, among the countries where the survey was conducted, Barbados, a small island nation in the Caribbean, was the most expensive place for those working at home, with monthly expenses estimated at US $ 586 to cover expenses such as broadband, data furniture, and basic services for lighting, heating and charging a notebook.
This was followed by two European nations, Spain with a monthly cost of $ 547 and Germany with $ 530.
According to accounting, which has 28 countries on the list, Turkey is the fifth cheapest country, with an overall monthly cost of $ 187. This includes the average cost for a fixed-line broadband package ($ 13.61), the average price of 1 GB of mobile data ($ 0.72), along with the cost of electricity per kWh (9 cents).
Homeworkers in Turkey also need to pay only $ 0.04 cents to carry a notebook for eight hours a day, resulting in a monthly cost of $ 0.71 cents to the worker.
The cost to use a lamp for eight hours is $ 0.04 cents in the country, while the cost to use an electric kettle for four hours is $ 8.54.
