As digital nomads and remote workers continue to seek new opportunities and experiences around the world, the trend of remote work has become a dominant force in the modern workforce. However, some may argue that this trend is just a passing fad, and that traditional office work will eventually return to its former dominance. However, the evidence is there to support that remote work is not just a passing trend, but rather a fundamental shift in the way we work.
The rise of remote work can be attributed to several factors. First, advancements in technology have made it easier than ever to work from anywhere in the world. With video conferencing, instant messaging, and cloud-based file sharing tools, remote teams can stay connected and collaborate just as effectively as in-person teams.
Second, many companies are realizing the benefits of remote work, including increased productivity, cost savings, and access to a wider talent pool. As a result, more and more companies are adopting remote work policies and hiring remote workers to take advantage of these benefits.
Finally, remote work aligns with the changing expectations and preferences of the modern workforce. Many people are seeking greater flexibility and work-life balance, and remote work offers the freedom to work on your own schedule, from anywhere in the world.
The COVID-19 pandemic has also accelerated the adoption of remote work, with many companies forced to switch to remote work overnight. Twitter was a great example of a major tech company allowing workers to work from home permanently. “We’ve already been on this path, and the crisis just catapulted us into a future state,” said Twitter human resources chief Jennifer Christie, who said she believes flexibility for workers is the “fourth industrial revolution" because it will fundamentally change the way people work. “The future of work is offering employees more optionality.” (Elizabeth Dwoskin, Washington Post, 2020). While some companies may return to in-person work as the pandemic subsides, many are expected to continue offering remote work options to their employees.

"Amazing Coliving space in Hawaii! Coliving is up and coming, which can be new to many people. As for me, it's the longest I have stayed at a coliving space. I 100% recommend spending at least 2 months at Surfbreak if you are traveling alone or with friends/companion but want to meet other people without the moving hassle. The community is wonderful and the community managers make sure that everyone has a great and safe time in Hawaii. The space is clean and they have cleaners who come frequently. The location is perfect and many of us did not need a car to do our every day needs or wants. We would rent a car for day trips to explore the island. The rooms come with everything you would need (desk, minifridge, organization, bed, linens, pillows and 2 towels. I only had to bring my work computer and clothes/shoes. Even the showers are constantly restocked with facial towels and shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Definitely an amazing community to meet people, work remotely, and explore the island." - Kara
