Flexible and effective: the trend toward mobile working

If you had to choose: Do you prefer to perform the same job at a fixed workplace or remotely? Provided, of course, that the job is suitable for remote working. What are the reasons for your decision?

The trend toward mobile working is increasing. This has been particularly reinforced by the pandemic in the last two years. After all, the number of people working from home offices in Germany rose from four percent before the crisis to 30 percent in the first lockdown. Even after that, the trend toward remote work persisted and continues to increase.

What are the benefits of mobile working?

Location-independent working has a major impact on the lifestyle of many people. This is because it opens up options and freedom that a job at a fixed workplace cannot offer. The advantages of mobile working are manifold:

  • The dream of being able to combine travel and work can become a reality
  • Home office makes it easier to reconcile family and job
  • Travel to the workplace is spared

 

Overall, it can be concluded that mobile working can increase employee satisfaction. Although remote working has many advantages, up to a certain point it is a question of personal taste how one prefers to work. Disadvantages could be mentioned as follows:

  • Less personal contact with colleagues
  • The boundaries between work and leisure can become blurred

 

There are also some advantages for companies. For example, working from a home office makes office space superfluous. Remote work can also make employers more attractive, as many people nowadays prefer a flexible working model.
