A new opportunity
The opportunity to adopt a new relocation model allows us to imagine, in the not so far away, companies in which centralized work is not necessary and we can opt for a network of global and interconnected workers.According to the INE, in Spain, only 27% of companies contemplate this work modality.This despite the fact that it offers cost reduction benefits, allows greater fl exibility of the staff, increases productivity, facilitates labor reconciliation, reduces absenteeism and stress of workers among many other benefits.
The key requirement to successfully face the relocated work is to ensure that the teams continue to contribute value to the organization in a recurrent and iterative manner, which requires that the objectives are properly marked, the roles well de fi nests, the tasks wellDistributed and available appropriate tools.
