Will we all soon be working from the Swiss alps?

Technology and now Covid-19 have transformed the way we live and work. Organisations all over the globe were forced to swiftly respond to the pandemic by implementing telework arrangements. Throughout this transition, some professionals have realised they are able to carry out their jobs from home effectively and would like their employers to offer more flexible work options post-pandemic.

This has raised important questions about the future of how we work and whether fully remote concepts, such as digital nomads and lifestyle migrants, will become a part of talent strategies in Switzerland. If work itself is no longer confined by geographical and physical presence at a fixed place, will this lead to paradigm shift? Can a job and location be decoupled and still be productive?

To better understand how organisations are responding to the growing desire for more work flexibility, we interviewed organisations with experience in managing remote employees, professionals working in Switzerland as well as leaders across Robert Walters. This guide 

  • provides an overview of the current and emerging trends in remote working,
  • discusses what jobs would benefit the most from a remote workforce, 
  • offers insights on how organisations can adopt a talent strategy without borders to combat talent shortages and increase workplace diversity. 

As organisations charter unfamiliar waters in the post-pandemic era, Robert Walters Switzerland is here to help successfully navigate and adapt to the new world of work.
