Linked – Will non-linear work days be the new hybrid working?
I suspect this will remain a very niche thing now, though. The issue is the expectation of what the “work day” is. Granted, if you work in a customer-facing position, even a remote job where you have to interact with customers in real-time virtually, it’s unlikely they will be OK with a meeting at a time outside the 9-5.
On the other hand, there are plenty of jobs where those interactions make up part of the day but not all. Why can’t the other part of the day be outside the 9-5 so we can take care of other things during the day? You know, when doctors’ mechanics, banks, and other services are open, or when we want some time outside in the sun?
