Future of Work - Hybrid Work

Work from Home (WFH) will turn into Work from Anywhere (WFA)

This post is part of a 9-article series on the future of work from Emma Wanderer's perspective. Packed with insights and statistics, we give you a glimpse into our view of how we humans will shape and lead our working lives in the future.

Hypothesis 1: Work from Home (WFH) will turn into Work from Anywhere (WFA)

The question of whether or not we will work remotely more often in the future is clearly answered with: yes, we will. Eurostat did a study in 2019 (before the pandemic!) according to which about 53 million jobs in the EU could be classified as "teleworkable." , meaning that these jobs can potentially be done remotely. Research around the world indicates that an incredible number of more than 50% of professionals with remote work potential actually want to work remotely.

Currently the discussion circulates around whether we will work from home or in our company's office. There seem to be two positions: home office advocates and company office fans. However, this dual view falls short of all other possibilities out there.

We firmly believe that hybrid work will become the norm, meaning a lot more variety in office spaces. Alternative work environments such as coworking spaces (in urban, as well as suburban or even natural spaces) are already emerging. Examples of unusual coworking offers are CoworkingLand in Germany, or Outsite on a global level. While coworking spaces have been mostly viewed as a niche offering appealing to young companies, freelancers, and solopreneurs, they have become increasingly interesting for everyone in our working society.

What is more, the next evolutionary phase of mobile work already appears on the horizon: Campervans and motorhomes are moving away from their previous hippie image: Equipped with a high-tech solar-powered and fully equipped mobile office - and perhaps even autonomous - a new breed of independent workforce cruises towards a new flexible working life.
