Explore how the rise of the remote worker is redefining the environments, communities, and motivations in the way we work.
The way we work is changing. According to Forbes, there has been a 40% percent increase in flexible workplace options by employers over the last five years, and regular telecommuting grew 115% in the past decade – nearly 10 times faster than the rest of the workforce. Technology, innovative thinking, and a higher value for quality of life is driving this change, yet some working environments are not keeping up with this pace. Recognizing the breadth of possibilities for remote working has become increasingly important, and there are many revolutionary tools coming to market to address this future of the workplace.
