What and where is work then

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

20140526_154406I was involved with a group at a workshop the other day when the subject of what people do and where they work became an important discussion point.

Although the majority of people at that workshop did still have traditional offices, a large minority didn’t. Even the people who did have offices to go to, did not spend that much time in them and certainly not ‘9 to 5’.

The concept of ‘work’ is now, more than ever, about value created and not hours worked. The majority of people don’t need to be sat at a desk to create value; they can, with technology, work remotely from their desk, using a mobile ‘phone and a tablet computer and access to the ‘cloud’.

‘Coffice is a word I’m hearing quite frequently at the moment, working on something from a coffee shop, although I know people who are quite happy working in health clubs and wine bars. A friend of mine has for years, worked from a particular hotel lounge in London for years.

Adding value to a customer’s business can be achieved from almost anywhere. It’s the How, not the Where that is important.
