Telepraca stała się powszechną formą pracy dla pracowników umysłowych w ostatnich latach. Chociaż wzrasta liczba badań z zakresu telepracy, nadal brakuje wiedzy na jej temat - ponieważ możliwości tego trybu pracy rozwijają się szybko. Celem badania było znalezienie obszaru i motywacji do telepracy w sektorze nieruchomości. Aktualne badania wykorzystują dane empiryczne z badania przeprowadzonego wśród 127 respondentów, którzy pracują w Estonii dla firm zajmujących się nieruchomościami. Dane zbierano w ramach ilościowego kwestionariusza w 2017 r. Przedstawiono trzy hipotezy dotyczące motywacji pracowników. Badanie potwierdziło, że pracownicy sektora nieruchomości korzystają z telepracy w celu oszczędności czasu i dojazdu do pracy oraz większej wolności i prywatności. Wyniki pokazują, że tylko niewielka liczba pracowników nie korzysta z telepracy. Według wyników badania dotyczącego technologii informacyjno-komunikacyjnych (ICT) i urządzeń przenośnych codziennego użytku, telepraca ma duży potencjał w sektorze nieruchomości. Decyzja o pracy zdalnej odbywa się zazwyczaj przez samych pracowników, a zatem główne czynniki wpływające na telepracę zostały skoncentrowane na pracownikach. Konieczne jest wykształcenie pracowników i pracodawców w zakresie zalet i zagrożeń związanych z telepracą. To mogłoby przyczynić się do zapoznania ich potencjałem i propozycjami telepracy.

Telework has become a common form of work for white-collar workers in recent years. Although the number of telework studies increases, there is still a lack of knowledge regarding telework - as the opportunities for this mode of work are developing rapidly. The purpose of the current study is to find out the spread and drivers of telework in the real estate sector. The current research uses empirical data from a survey with 127 respondents who work for real estate companies in Estonia. Data were collected through a quantitative questionnaire during 2017. Three hypotheses were presented regarding the drivers for the employees. The study confirmed that employees in the real estate sector use telework in order to save commuting time and costs, and to have more freedom and privacy. The results show that only a small number of employees have remained untouched by telework. Based on the current study on information-communication technology (ICT) and mobile devices' daily use, telework has a high potential in the real estate sector. The decision to work remotely is usually made by workers themselves and therefore the main drivers for teleworking have been employee-centred. It is necessary to educate employees and employers concerning the advantages and risks connected with telework. That would contribute to introducing telework's potential and suggestions to them.
