What do people in corporate or office jobs actually have to do? They are expected to keep the office temperature comfortable, prepare documents, and keep the office organized. Usually, office work hours are set, so people can make it to work at a reasonable time. Office jobs usually require a basic education and a few years of experience, but many upper-level positions require a college degree or an advanced degree.
In recent years, the number of people working in corporate offices has decreased drastically. Previously, four percent of employed people worked exclusively from home. But now, nearly forty percent of knowledge workers choose hybrid or remote work. Most people continued to work in person, but the shift in working hours was particularly drastic for white-collar workers. The shift to flexible work hours is a good thing for everyone. But for people in corporate offices, flexible hours may not be as beneficial as they think.
Employees in remote roles have more flexibility. They can work from coffee shops, home offices, or coworking spaces. And some of them even work from cities across the world. These types of positions require a high level of self-discipline. But despite these challenges, remote workers are often more productive. The benefits of being self-employed are significant, but they may not be for everyone.
