What's Next for the Home Office? These are 3 Trends in Remote Work

  • Although in previous years many companies were reluctant to use the home office, this way of working has proven its effectiveness.
  • Now flexibility at work is essential to offering job vacancies to an entire generation.
  • We present you 3 trends that are developing within the home office.

About to turn one year in remote work or home office, it is important to talk about new trends and what is coming in this way of working.

Although in previous years many companies were reluctant to run the home office, this way of working showed that production is not affected and in many cases improves.

Now, within the home office trends you can find three new ways to do it.

1. Workation

TransparentBusiness CEO* Silvina Moschini assures that new flexible ways of working will be essential to employing a new generation.

This is why companies must be clear that flexibility will be essential when offering vacancies, such as the opportunity to work from any tourist destination.

"There are many people who are reconciling the opportunity to work in incredible places like Tulum, Cancun and Ixtapa," said Silvina.

Silvina explains that before it was believed that these spaces were exclusive for vacations, but with the home office you have the opportunity to work and enjoy a beach at the same time.

"We can be where we want to be and be fully productive, without sacrificing personal life and a career," she added.

2. Co-living

Co-living is the practice where coworkers rent huge, isolated houses so they can continue their jobs from anywhere.

"This is like a space shared with colleagues and that makes it possible to combine living and working with colleagues at the same time."

Silvina compares this trend as in university days, where you could share spaces to study in a group, unlike living and working with colleagues in this trend.

“If you want to work in Thailand for 6 months, obviously you don't buy or rent a house. This trend gives you the opportunity to be with people with whom you share the same philosophy.

3. Room office

This other way of doing home office has saved some hotels from the shortage of tourists and even the coffee shops where people with remote jobs used to go to work.

The CEO assures that it is more and more recurrent to see hotels with home office offers, where you can pay by the day or by the hour to be able to work or simply take conferences.

There are even countries like Barbados that offer visas exclusively to work remotely or states like Vermont, United States, that pay you up to $18,000 to go there.

However, work hours must be respected. Silvina also mentions that it is essential that there is a responsible work culture and not fall into extreme hours within the home office trends. “The biggest risk is that people end up suffering a burn out, so it is important to keep track of time, and not in a way to control production or know if you are working. Many times, people are actually taking more hours, ”said Silvina.

Therefore, it is advisable to establish limits, rules and have a good organization to carry out daily activities. «The collaborator can get burned and that does not suit anyone. Businesses and individuals must be regulated ”.
