  1. On paper, working remotely from anywhere in the world, looks attractive. As employees can base themselves where they are getting a lot of enjoyment from their hobbies (biking, hiking, surfing etc) that satisfaction may well spill over to their jobs too. It ought to help employee retention. I’ve got a feeling that the small print might stop some employees from living the dream.

    1. Yes, in theory, I think it’s great to be able to have a lifestyle like this, potentially for both employer and employee. However, I think there are plenty of potential pitfalls and it therefore won’t work for everyone… and indeed it’ll just be impossible to implement for some, depending on their line of work.

  2. My take on the situation is that in future where you work is going to be big in deciding on jobs and careers. Employees used to take a job because it had potential for travel for work. Now they’re going to want to take care of the travel for themselves. Interviews will be about seeing if you can get a green light to work wherever you like.

    1. This is why I chose to run my own business. I immediately have that freedom without being answerable to anyone. Of course, it can have its downsides, but for me the positives easily outweigh any negatives.
