The term "digital nomad" was new until February 2020. For the last weeks, most of the GCC workforce is remote working. This is going across industries and functions that didn’t consider the remote options before.
You undoubtedly will find many different definitions. So, what does digital nomad mean?
• Companies are enabling remote work to keep business running while helping employees follow social distancing guidelines.
• A typical company saves about $11,000 per remote half-time worker per year, according to Global Workplace Analytics.
• As companies adapt to their remote work structures, the coronavirus pandemic is having a lasting impact on how work is conducted.
As part of the Future of Work, aside from digitalization and automation, professionals are more and more looking to move away from a 9 to 5 workday or become freelancers. Is digital work a real future?
There has always been a debate as to whether this is truly a viable work option. My opinion is that yes, this is absolutely a viable work option, but not for everyone. Can companies adapt the concept of remote working successfully and permanently, and is this an actual next step in your career?
