We’re sure you are well aware of the recent work-from-home revolution.

This is up considerably from just a year before when a similar survey by Avaya found around half of employees preferred to work from home some of the time.
Today, you can live in Dubai and work for an organisation almost anywhere in the world, and vice-versa. Countless Dubai companies now hire remote employees from all over the globe. A digital recruitment agency can connect businesses and talent wherever they are in the world.
Why work from home in digital?
The roots of this momentous change were already in place when the pandemic struck. It quickly sped up a move towards hybrid and remote-only working. The appropriate technology was suddenly widely and easily available, too.
Communications platforms, cloud technology and better online meeting spaces mean that work-from-home is now mainstream. Many roles are suited to hybrid working and there’s a growing list of roles that are also available for remote-only working.
Professionals from all areas have jumped at more opportunities for better work-life balance, the end of stressful and costly commuting, and more efficient and flexible ways of working. Businesses have benefitted from larger talent pools, reduced overheads, and better personnel retention rates.
