The work of “ digital nomads ” from anywhere, connection is possible
ANGLESEY, Wales (NBC) – This may be the ultimate home office. Swaying on a cliff above the Irish Sea. But for a Scottish call center consultant with a taste for adventure, this is the place to test telecommuting technology.
The change in work habits brought about by the pandemic in the 1920s and 20s is expected to continue and has given rise to the “digital nomad”. People using technology that allows them to work anywhere connectivity is possible.
Jason Griffin works with Five-Nine, whose call center software is used by global brands in clothing, education, and sports, among others. He said as long as he had a mobile connection and his laptop, he had everything he needed to do his job as well – if not better – than if he was in a busy office.
“The new way of working will be completely different in the future. This is how I see it. The traditional five days at the office, Monday, Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. they are gone, they are no longer there. People are going to be split between home and office, if not home all the time. And it’s exciting because it fits people’s lives so much better. Everything will be better, ”Griffin said.
And to prove this point, he set up a temporary office perched on a Portaledge on a cliff on the Isle of Anglesey, off the North Wales coast.
