Digital Nomads: Flexible Workplaces
More and more organizations are looking at flexible workplace statistics in order to understand the increasing trends of remote worker hiring:
Here is what different global surveys cite.
These statistics show that there is an increasing trend of hiring remote employees or work from home employees, as many have realized that there are many advantages in recruiting remote employees:
Let us first understand, that even though the terms ‘telecommuting, telework, work from home and remote work’ all sound fairly synonymous, there is quite a difference.
Remote work is when the employee resides outside the geographic area of the company’s office/ HQ. Telecommuting and telework implies there may (or may not) be on-site work needs. However, these days, not all work is mandatorily done from home — employees can opt to use their laptops at a coffee shop, a food court in a mall, a co-working space, or even an airport lounge while on the move. So, even though “work from home” is the common term used, it can be a misnomer in real practice.
We live in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world, where the needs of employees as well as of the organization are changing at a rapid pace. In order to stay ahead of the competition and gain the upper-hand over others, training is the only solution. Training helps us to stay away from the rut and sharpens our edges.

Both can be met through remote training and tailored distance education programs.
There is a compelling need to train new employees as soon as they join a new organization… Let us see the advantages of remote training:
It becomes imperative for organizations to draw up Training and Development Calendars and announce annual schedules, in advance. The right training course can mean the difference between mediocrity and extraordinary. Forward-looking universities and colleges are offering distance education programs and e-learning courses, which assist Managers and corporate individuals in CxO positions, to implement tailored personal development courses which are dove-tailed to meet the departmental, rganizational and individual goals.
Facilitated distance education programs and career-enhancing programs from such organizations, would include –
It may be noted that remote training is not a replacement for physical face-to -face training for any and all programs. Each has its own place. Remote training organisations and distance learning Programs, without any doubt, offer measurable benefits in improvement of employee morale, increased productivity, minimal supervision, uniform procedures, new skill-set development, etc. Choosing the right program and identifying the right organisation to employ for delivery of the training, is the key to its effectiveness.
