Recently we moved and downsized from a large North American urban area to a smaller house in the country. We also downsized the infrastructure of our corporation. Thanks to Cloud, Social and Collaborative technologies, acquaintances in our new locale think we are retired and not working full time.
In our area there is a high concentration of government and other traditional corporate workers – It’s not on their radar that one can work in a cabana on a beach, on a sailboat on a lake, a favorite pub or anywhere like that and still be in the office attending meetings, taking phone calls, being productive and doing it all efficiently. Not to mention the cost savings to be had for employees and employers. This is the Future of Work.
For those of us in the IT world, working this way is taken for granted but now it’s time to share some of these “secrets” with those outside of the tech world.
