Being the Head of HR in an international company, why do you think more and more people are opting for the possibility to work remotely in a transnational environment?
We’re really lucky to live at a time when technology enables us to connect from anywhere in the world, and I think the future belongs to the companies who can make the best use of the opportunity: fully remote work offers an improved work-life balance, takes out the stress of commuting, and leaves more time for being with the family or friends, for hobbies or engaging with the local community. I know there’s a wide-spread concern that working remotely is less efficient for the company, but I believe that if we weigh in the benefits for the environment: of reduced traffic, heating for office buildings, etc.; for the community: through stronger social ties, better individual well-being, remote work is a win for society. As a business, we see this our responsibility to give back to the community. Our revenue only benefits, too.
