Research carried out by Siemens Enterprise Communications reveals that advances in communications mean that staff can work on the move, in the office or at home nowadays, making it far easier for people to land jobs that would have been out of reach ten years ago due to logistical constraints.
The report polled 1,000 people and found that 85 per cent of communication devices used for team collaboration – including smartphones, laptops and mobile phones - are outside the company headquarters.
According to the report's authors, this highlights how workers are increasingly carrying out tasks from different locations across different platforms.
It has enabled them to conduct face-to-face meetings, team collaborations and creative tasks without having to travel to the office, creating an open workplace, noted Rob Keenan, head of UK portfolio management, deployment readiness management at Siemens Enterprise Communications.
"The rise of the anywhere employee has meant the end of the office worker. More than ever, work isn't where you go, it's what you do," he added.
