New Ways to Work Anywhere in the World

Covid-19 has changed the way digital nomads do their jobs far from home, and who decides to live their lives on the road.


Coherent, explicit digital nomad programs make it easier to hire these in-demand workers and engage, reward, and retain existing employees who wish to travel. The programs can also include policies for hiring freelance nomads, who are less likely to create legal or regulatory problems because they aren't traditional employees.
