The Current State of Remote Work Globally

According to recent IWG flexible work report, half of all employees globally are working outside of their main office HQ for at least 2.5 days a week. Another study, by telecommuting research firm Global Workplace Analytics and recruitment firm FlexJobs, found that 4.9 million American workers said they telecommuted in 2017, representing an increase of 159% from the 1.8 million U.S. employees that said the same in 2005. There are 3.9 million Americans or 2.9% of the total US workforce who work from home at least half the time. And the numbers go on… Estimates say that by 2028, 73% of all departments globally will have remote workers, with 33% full-time employees working remotely (Upwork, 2019).

How to make most of the turmoil around Brexit?

Uncertainty is a form of crisis, and crisis is a form of opportunity. It is very likely that the coming months and maybe years will put an enduring strain on the UK job market, especially in IT. However, these challenges present the opportunity for a much-needed recruitment process overhaul. It’s all about adaptation to the trends of the global job market, pointing toward location-independence and a higher emphasis on contract-based work over traditional employment.
