We’ve officially entered the remote decades this 2020.
Remote is the biggest revolution yet in the history of work. Living our lives being handcuffed to our desks, We’d say it was long overdue.
We’re moving towards a model where we have more flexibility to decide our work schedules and operate accordingly when we’re most productive rather than the fixed 9 to 5. This transition of organizing work around life is huge and not without major implications.
We’re breaking the fourth wall in the workspace, acknowledging that we have a life and priorities beyond the office premises. But this is fundamentally evolving the way we approach work and structure, not actually disengaging us from it. The main focus is shifting towards efficiency instead of hours.
Few companies are also reinventing themselves in this quest.
Here are a few remote conferences helping the crowds catch up to the trends.
