We often dream of packing our bags to leave the city and live in a peaceful place with more space and freedom. Who doesn't want to work facing a big green view, right?
Corporations are becoming more flexible these days and going into a formal office is no longer mandatory for some, so it might be a great time to consider where you can work from remotely. There are many benefits to moving further out from the CBD; from rent prices to even more affordable dining and grocery options.
Leaving the city. Is it worth it?
There have been numerous studies conducted on how remote work and a flexible work setup affects employees. According to the International Workplace Group, approx. 85% of their survey respondents confirmed that their productivity increased in their business because of greater flexibility.
Furthermore, there is an increase of people now shifting to this new trend. In fact, it has now become a major consideration in accepting a job offer! Promising, right?
It is important, though, to understand that for this to work, you need to be equipped with the right technology.
But which technology?
To be specific the crucial essentials are a reliable computer setup and a stable internet connection. Once you have these two secured, setting-up collaborative applications such as Trello, Asana or Zoom will make attending meetings a breeze.
