As the remote workforce becomes the norm, workers are now able to travel and work from virtually wherever they want as long as there is internet access. Now, much of the workforce is choosing to take business trips, without a client visit or meeting.
Remote workers are able to continue working while traveling, meaning they can stay at their destination longer than expected. Extended stays have led travel agents like AirBnB and Expedia to take notice of remote workers and cater to their demands.
This also means that retirement age is extending because workers are able to enjoy traveling to new destinations and continue working.
Furthermore, some nomadic travel programs will pay for workers to go on trips in order to prevent burnout and provide access to virtual skill training. It’s a win-win situation for both employers and employees because offerings like this boost workers retention rates as well as productivity.
Additionally, traveling as a group can not only combat isolation, it can provide professionals the opportunity to build culture and collaborate in new ways. For example, lifestyle brand Unsettled recently acquired digital nomad platform Wanderbrief in order to combine corporate offsite experiences with remote working.
