We recently did a deep dive into the future of work and where it may lead. We spoke to people from around CloudCall, as well as the wider technology industry, to ask how a remote world and the rise of automation, will affect people’s work lives.
The webinar took place on Thursday 19th August and our panel of experts discussed the future of work and how recruiters can engage top talent in a remote world.
In the morning, you might wake up drowsy with no commute or morning team chats. Then, when you finally feel like you’re on a roll and about to get everything on your to-do list done, you might look out the window. Look at how dark it is, you’ve worked straight through dinner!
Although the mishap like this is fairly common, you don’t want it to become a regular part of your lifestyle. Sure, working late at night occasionally can help you get ahead in your career. But doing so regularly can harm your mental health, happiness at work, and your work-life balance.
Working from home comes with some perks. You enjoy a better work-life balance, don’t have to commute to the office and get to work in your pajamas.
