Technology, globalisation and automation have paved the way for major shifts in workplace flexibility. The future of work is defined by transparency, distributed systems and greater autonomy. The workplace is no longer a static, physical place and employees no longer need to adhere to set hours, routines and hierarchies. Technology enables us to work from anywhere, and the lines between working hours and personal time have blurred.
We believe that this should mean one thing: work must fit life. In the future of work success will be marked by having a fulfilling career based on individual talent and values, that works in harmony with life, family, travel. Pioneers of a life based on truth not routine, Flylancer are navigating exactly how to do this and our community is here to witness and support this.
