Remote Work Leading to Life Outside the City?
Reports are starting to come in of the big shift being seen in the workplace as estimates of those returning to the office full time seem to be getting lower and lower, much of the opportunity that had been seen early on were those exploring options to live the digital nomad lifestyle by working away from home as options away from home offered all the creature comforts with the shift for online entertainment and the growth of popular services like top NBA betting sites in Canada for example, but the draw to move abroad may be starting to slow as those looking to work from home may now look to move out of the city in favour of options that are much more attractive.
The flexibility comes two-fold, the first being for those who may not have to return to the office at all and have the option to move much further afield and moving away from the city, without the high cost of living and the busyness that comes from living in the city to enjoy the peace and quiet of getting away. The others are those that may still need to commute once a day, they may not have the opportunity to move as far afield but may still be able to move within decent commuting distance and enjoy the best of both worlds with the city life during the working day and the quiet town life whilst being away.
It may certainly be something that’s seen to increase with time too, it has been suggested by many that companies not willing to offer remote working options may quickly fall behind to those who do, and those hiring further away from the office are finding tremendous success with remote working options too by being able to attract those who may have otherwise been unavailable. Whilst it won’t dry up options for those who prefer the city life, it may certainly be something that makes both sides of the coin more accessible, those willing to live in the city may see more affordable housing and different job opportunities, and those looking to stay outside of the city or commute into the city may be able to reap the benefits of both worlds.
It’s still very early though, the shift for a post-pandemic lifestyle is still occurring and there’s a lot that remains unknown too, whilst the possibility of everything returning to the normal many recognize is certainly still there, this new change is very much a possibility at the same time and may even be something that has been sought after for a much longer period of time but not as possible until now.
