There’s a big new trend in the world of work. Digital tech has now made it simple for companies to hire talent from other parts of the world, building a “digital office” of bright young things without having to worry about hiring from a local pool.
This is beneficial for companies because they have a much larger pool of talent to choose from, allowing them to find the exact right fit for their roles more easily. Of course, this is also very appealing to a workforce who is increasingly demanding the death of the 9-to-5 model and inefficient work practices. The freedom to travel and still earn is very appealing.
The idea is still young in New Zealand, but it’s growing. A New Zealander has recently launched a Digital Nomad Facebook Forum in order to bring like-minded people together to learn more about how to build location independent income.
