We have been witness to huge monumental changes in the world in just recent years. With the advent of Internet technology, a large part of the globe have the ability to connect to the Internet which has also seen the rise of adoption and use of devices like smartphones, tablets and laptops. As a result and with the use of specific communication applications, people can converse while seeing each other’s faces even if they are located on the other side of the planet. This marks a massive change in terms of communication and how people carry out their work. Previously, if you wanted to meet a client, you’d have to arrange a face-to-face meeting (or a phone call obviously) but these new methods of communication mean that people can screen share, can “visually” meet and so on. People can even carry out work now on their commute which is a significant step forward in terms of efficiency.
These new steps forward in communications technology means that “remote” working is now also a possibility. Remote working allows an individual (or team) to work in a place other than their company’s office. It definitely requires trust (on both sides), it requires good Internet connection and it requires discipline on behalf of the remote worker themselves. We have put together this new infographic which covers the whole topic of remote working and its rise and what it means for both the employer and the employee. Check it out below.
