As it becomes increasingly clear that remote and hybrid arrangements are here to stay for much of the workforce, new digital nomad trends have begun to emerge.
In an effort to capitalize on this shift in the workforce, proptech firm Blueground has launched its program Blueground Nomads, offering 4,000 fully furnished apartments across 15 cities globally.
The company aims to help traveling professionals explore new parts of the world, while easily providing safe living arrangements.
“Flexibility, exploration and the freedom to choose how and where you spend your time is the essence of Blueground,” said Alex Chatzieleftheriou, cofounder and CEO of Blueground. “We’re not only providing max flexibility, but we’re encouraging our team members to choose the best work environment for them.”
Additionally, some countries have started offering their own work visas geared towards digital nomads to boost tourism. Places like Georgia and Estonia have launched their own programs to bring overseas professionals into their countries to work, pay taxes and contribute to the economy.
Another interesting digital nomad trend to have emerged recently is the growing number of people traveling across the U.S. in RVs.
The Escapees RV Club has over 60,000 members, thousands of volunteers and nearly 100 employees. Some members live in their RV year round, while others work either part-time or full-time from the road.
