Increasing numbers of jobs are becoming location-independent – essentially not requiring employees to be based in a single office. The continuing improvements in internet connectivity around the world, the prevalence of cloud storage and an overall change in the attitude towards remote working have made remote working a more viable option for companies.
One such company is Logan Car Rental, who have recently switched to a remote office policy. Employees can connect from anywhere – their home office, shared workspaces, hotels, airports – and collaborate on projects together.
By combining the cloud storage and security of Dropbox and the private chat client HipChat, staff can share files, host conference calls and work together just as they could if they were all in one place.
Remote working seems to be the future of the tech sector – how do you feel about working remotely?
