During the course of the information age and globalization, the job market has changed dramatically. Many professions (new and old) don’t rely on local installations, such as factories. As a consequence, many jobs are no longer tied to a specific geographic location. We see that for example with customer support being outsourced to India or Eastern Europe.
On the bright side, many people don’t have to commute to work every day because they can do office work from home. Some even work from home full time and join meetings via tele- or video-conferences.
So do you work from home as a consequence of global interconnectedness or would you like to? And why (not)?
