Abstract: According to forecasts, by 2022 60 % of office workers around the world will be regularly engaged in distant working activities (DWA). DWA components (DWA requires additional staff competences) and significant dynamics of this type of employment (DWA is rapidly spreading among high-tech industries) determine the need for domestic personnel to acquire new or expand previously acquired competences needed to perform DWA. But now the design and development of e-learning systems for remote workers (which most closely match the specifics of DWA) is not given proper attention. Thus, the goal of this study has been defined, which is to identify the key principles of the design and construction guidelines for development of an adaptive and integrated system of e-learning for remote employees based on establishing the characteristics of the current stage of the DWA application. Generalized analysis of the characteristics of the modern stage of DWA application has shown that the scope of DWA is rapidly increasing and their projected growth will continue; almost all types of DWA (individual, full-time, collective, mobile, in a TV center or a coworking space, etc.) are spreading; DWA success in each case depends on whether the performer's personal goals and the enterprise goals (corporate goals) agree and whether the performer has all the necessary competences to perform DWA. Based on these current trends in DWA development the researchers have determined the principal terms and guidelines for designing an integrated and individually adaptive e-learning system for remote workers that as fully as possible takes into account their personality, specific nature of work and learning goals they set
