The rapid evolution and widespread adoption of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) – the Internet, personal devices such as smartphones and tablets and of course the personal computer – have revolutionized the world of those who create and work with information. With the portability of knowledge work, people can now work, communicate and collaborate anywhere they can get an Internet connection.
At the same time, many knowledge workers endure a grinding time famine. It’s hard to find enough hours in the day and week to attend to professional, family and community obligations while maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Something has to give and that something is the daily commute to a centralized commuter office (CCO). The ICT revolution has rendered it an obsolete time suck while at the same time giving people the ability to choose when and where they get their organizations’ and clients’ work done.
Work Anywhere Nation envisions a better, more balanced world where performing knowledge work outside of centralized commuter offices (CCOs) at home or in community work centers is the norm.
The benefits are many.
People will feel more in control of their busy lives. They’ll have more time to spend with their families and communities. More time enhance and preserve their health by engaging in exercise, getting enough sleep and eating healthy meals at home. It will be easier to live outside of high cost metro centers.
Plus the consequent reduction in commuting will reduce carbon emissions and wear and tear on transportation infrastructure as governments seek ways to save taxpayer dollars.
