The way we define "destination" is evolving. When it comes to migration, where we seek to live, work and call home is oftentimes not as simple as choosing a country.
The emergence of Remote Work and implementation of visa categories for Digital Nomads has made this essence of travel-work migration a reality. All around the world communities of co-living spaces are providing a home for those seeking a new destination. Some are infused with cultural elements of the surrounding country, and some are more autonomous, existing as a hyper-relevant community for a certain professional or demographic.
In fact, there is only one constant: Destination Remote is a constantly evolving, ever-changing landscape within international mobility. The notion that a destination may no longer be constrained to traditional borders, and understood as a community where interests and values intersect is a true phenomena.
Remote - A New Destination.
Similar to the powerful rise of Digital Nomadism, palpable movements towards living and working remotely are completely unprecedented. Paradigm shifts within the employer-employee relationship have generated new definitions of how we define productivity in the workspace. And as our global economy emerged from a heartless pandemic, it became crystal clear that outdated precepts of corporate-management and work-life culture would not survive.
The Future of Work...and how we live.
The result – a universally sweeping movement towards a new wave of work. The Future of Work arrived in 2022 with a revolutionary BANG. Corporate Prophets, Industry Gurus and self-proclaimed Futurists predicted it. The relentless progress of technology demanded it. A world that suffered found itself more interconnected than ever before, and was primed for it. And now, here we are – in the midst of a revolutionary way for defining how we live and work.
And how fortunate we are to find ourselves here! For those that not only have the virtue of being capable of removing unnecessary barriers in the workspace, but being incentivized to pursue this sense of life-freedom. Gone with the dreadful urban commute. Let us think twice about employee happiness and what this means. Gone with wasted expenses for corporate office space. Let us embrace the hybrid-model and provide employees with the opportunity to work from anywhere … with good network connectivity of course.
Remote Work is Here to Stay
You don’t have to search far and wide to find this fortune cookie statement. Statistics will pop-out like spring, and one can easily get convinced about how beautiful it all is. And how sweet it is, this fragrance of corporate freedom. Unshackled from sterile cubicles to live that postcard dream! The most amazing part of it all, is that it is true. Well most of it at least. Both employers and employees are actively discovering new methods of working together. Attentive employers are implementing new incentives for retaining their top-tier talent in the new-age. And loyal employees are valuing their longevity and convenience of being with an organization that supports them in this new-age of workspace productivity.

Transitioning into the Future of Work for Enterprises and Employers
This ability to live and work beyond our individual borders is both inspiring and challenging. In reality, it presents as many opportunities as it does real-world issues to address. Even enterprises with good-faith intentions for transitioning into a hybrid-remote work model need to fully understand costs and implications. And there are many: Corporate Taxation, HR & Payroll, Talent Retention, Visas and Immigration, Work-Permits, Labor Compliance, and the list goes on. And will continue to go on.
Dear Employees: Be sensitive to these real challenges employers face. It's not all WiFi and sea-breeze.
Dear Employers: There are solutions. There is compromise.
