New ways of working: undertake
The digital transformation creates the need to provide solutions to new problems, or create products that adapt to our new ways of living and working. For this reason, the current climate is very favorable for entrepreneurship in the face of new business opportunities.
The incorporation into the world of work does not have to be limited to being part of the workforce of a company, but can start with the creation of a startup or project that innovates in the sector. With the help of investment experts and business accelerators you can establish a company aimed at a new niche market, or the shortcomings to cover the new B2B relationships.
Self-employment as a way to offer services to companies, or work as a collaborator for several projects is another way to add value to the sector and to offer customized solutions for more than one company. In this way, the billing of your work will depend on your productivity and a wide portfolio of clients to whom you offer your professional profile.
New personal alternatives for workers
Technological applications in the organization of work and its use to communicate and coordinate with large teams easily, regardless of geographical distance; they are key to incentivize remote work and to encourage work and personal reconciliation.
Having a permanent job or being part of the workforce of a company is no longer incompatible with geographical mobility, or the development of work outside the company’s facilities. The flexibility of these new ways of working are very positive to create more productive and innovative work climates.
