The pandemic opened new doors for the remote work industry. It allowed people to realise that they could have a successful work-life balance. There have been many industries that have allowed their employees to stick to remote working. This has also allowed businesses to expand their workforce beyond their local pool of employee candidates. Many businesses have found this to benefit them since they can hire people for a fraction of the cost. On the other hand, companies from less developed countries would never be able to offer something like a business IT support London Solution at a reduced rate.
People can really work from anywhere these days and the digital nomad community is expanding rapidly. Before you’d hear the term ‘digital nomad’ and picture someone who travels around the country in a repurposed van. Now, there are people running multimillion-dollar businesses from the beach. Digital nomads with smaller businesses generally take care of all their tasks, but larger businesses outsource the work remotely. The community has grown rapidly and IT support companies have jumped at the opportunity.
Before, the idea of being able to work remotely was never a full-time option and it was almost impossible to have a team work remotely. Now there are endless tools, infrastructure and software that makes remote work possible but also just as smooth and working in an office. There are still many people who prefer the option of working in an office for issues like time zones or not having the correct IT support services when you need it. Some people are just more productive and produce a higher quality of work when they can separate their personal life from their work life.
This is the beauty of remote work. It has given people options that can fit their optimal work environment. There are still many unknowns about the effects that remote work will have on business in the long run. People with more traditional views are concerned about remote employees never learning workplace etiquette. There is also the issue of people not being able to socialise since the idea of remote work seems isolating. Digital nomads have shown us that this is not always the case. Co-working spaces are becoming the norm around the world, which allows remote workers to still interact with people and get out of their homes. Since there is the option of setting their own hours, digital nomads also have more opportunities to socialise in ways that they enjoy. There are now more opportunities for anyone, no matter what their work preferences are.
