Telecommuting from the Edge

City MapWhere You are is not Important Anymore

With today's state of technology it does not matter where in the world you are to do many types of work.  If you work is non-manufacturing then you have a better than 60% chance that it can be done remotely and the current research indicates that you will be more productive than your office bound counterpart and you will be a happier employee. Your employer benefits also by lower his costs of providing workspace and perks that comes with offices for you.

Remote Work for Employers

Have you already started to let employees work outside of your offices? Sure Sales been doing it forever right? But what about the jobs that have not traditional been done somewhere else. In today's hyper-connected world it is almost impossible for business not to be working from everywhere but the question are you covering your corporate rear-end?

Do you work remote?

What does it mean to you to be a Remote Worker?  We at to 2BMobile have been working on our own definition of what Remote Work means to us.  We consider it a catch all phase that covers any worker that does not perform work at their employer's place of work.  That is a broader defintion than many other terms currently in use by people.

To Be Mobile @ Home?

As many of our regular reader know we have been focused on how to be productive while on the road but we have not been covering the unique needs of those who work remotely from home. It was not our intent to exclude them but we have been over the years more focused on trying to help the professional who had to travel or where outside of their office for the majority of their workday. Maybe that because that where we came from and had the most experience to help.

How Mobile Has Changed in 5 years

When I started 2BMobile we where thinking about mobility as freeing professional people from their offices by using smartphones, laptops and Netbooks (what are they?). Today with smartphones and tablets in the hands of almost everyone, mobility has taken a giant step forward in the quest of a truly virtual worker and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to work and the apps keep drive the independents from any one physical device to allow us the freedom to pick up where every and when every we want to.
