An excellent read from Buffer, which we at Bit Finer can definitely agree with. Remote work has been the norm for many people for quite some while, and now with this special edition of 2020, it kind of is the new norm for a lot of people. So let’s have look at some numbers and thoughts from the team at Buffer.
Robots cooking lunch?
When some people think of the workplace of the future, they envision futuristic-style holograms having a meeting or robots cooking lunch for everyone in the office.
Increasingly, though, the workplace of the future is looking more simple — people having the flexibility to work remotely from home with teammates all around the world.
With that in mind, the question is no longer “is remote work here to stay?” It seems like remote work might even be the new normal.
The real question now is “what trends are growing across the remote work landscape?”
So, Buffer dug into the data.
With three years of data from their annual State of Remote Work survey, they can start to piece together what’s becoming normal about remote work and where it might be headed in 2020.
Over 3,500 remote workers from around the world completed the Buffer’s survey and gave a behind-the-scenes look into their experiences and feelings around being a remote worker.
Let’s start with an overview, and then really dig in. In the Insights section, you can explore the benefits and struggles that come with remote work, find out why some people don’t recommend remote work, discover how many remote workers actually choose to work in their homes, and much more.
