Work from anywhere as a trend of the near future. How is the virtualisation of organisations going to impact the work content?

By enabling employees to work from their homes during the pandemic, a number of companies were able to maintain their operation continuity. At the same time, the work-from-home model appeared to suit many employees. How to comply with these employees‘ wishes while maintaining good results is a new challenge both for employers and team leaders. The so-called hybrid workplace or work from anywhere may be the solution here. What do these models entail? How will the work requirements themselves change with their introduction? And how to prepare the company for the new forms of remote work? These are some of the many questions every modern organisation should be asking.
