Remote work — What you should know about the evolving industry.

The history behind the workforce.

Where this dictates the workforce and its shift.

  • Remote-anywhere companies: At the moment, the remote work boom is still a new trend. However, most remote opportunities require you to reside in your current country. For example, a company in the US will require that you reside in the United States, while some companies have adopted a Remote-anywhere option where employees can work globally around the world regardless of location.
  • Salary Compensation regardless of location: Some companies have made salary compensations based on demographic locations while other companies have offered salary compensations based on skillset and experience regardless of the demographic location. This puts the companies at a competitive edge compared to those that offer compensation strictly based on location.
  • Flexible work schedules: Some companies have adopted a 4-day work week instead of the traditional 5 day work week, while others have introduced a 9/80 schedule in which employees work 9 hour days but get 1 day off every other week. As the remote work trend continues, we’ll start to see flexible adjustments made to satisfy top-performing employees, cutting out meetings that could be summarized in an email.
  • The boom of coworking spaces: With the increase of remote opportunities the trend of coworking spaces such as WeWork has been on the uprise, and we’ll start to see a lot more co-working spaces as an option to work remotely as an alternative.
