How has your workforce changed over the years? You’ve probably had people come and go; some of them you’ve likely missed and some of them you may have realized were not a good fit. The demographic nature of your workforce may have changed, too, as more women entered the workforce and people move into retirement and are replaced by a younger generation.

A digital nomad is an employee who can work from wherever and work whenever, thanks to the connections offered by laptops, tablets, smart phones, and the internet. The range of digital nomad work setups is vast—anywhere from just a few hours a week to a full-time digitally-based employee. How will this trend affect you? This graphic explains it.
