Remote work has become its own entity as it moves away from a necessary arrangement in the midst of a pandemic, to a mainstay in how we work and live.
Now, workers are more distributed than ever before as people travel while working, or even move to new time zones. But is there a place that offers the most ideal time zone?
The islands of Great Britain and Ireland, which are five hours later than Eastern Standard Time, may just be that.
Depending on a person’s work schedule preferences, working in this region means having more calm mornings and working later in the day. If you despise early morning meetings, this may be the best pick.
For instance, a 4 p.m. EST meeting would be at 9 p.m. in this area. While working alongside West Coast time can be trickier if working in the British time zone, so long as no meetings are held after 2 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, days can still be manageable.
Adopting this schedule allows professionals to have free mornings to either catch up on emails, or get a healthy start to the day without being swamped by messages from team members on the East Coast.
