Bratislava scores among top cities for freelancers in the world, an annual ranking showed again. Being a freelancer or a small entrepreneur who works only for own purposes is a dream of many people.

Also, some companies offer home-office as a benefit, some looking for workers who will work from home. The fields of work that most often offer the possibility of home-office are IT, telecommunications, marketing, advertisement and PR, according to data from platy.sk web.

“The number of respondents who work from home has increased,” said Martin Menšík, marketing manager of the Profesia website for job searching, as quoted by The Slovak Spectator. However, he added that in the past the number grew faster than today.
