By now, I have had the privilege of supporting Polygran in the area of employee and team development for more than two years. As a working student in Human Resources (HR), I take care of the topic of value development, the implementation of the latest HR trends and the organization of our team events. One thing has characterized my job here from the very beginning and I can’t imagine working without it today: mobile working. For me, working is possible anywhere I have space for my laptop and functioning Wi-Fi: Train, café, university library, co-working space… the list is long.
Mobile working means freedom, flexibility and trust
For me, this form of location-independent working stands for freedom, flexibility and trust. The choice of where I work is never fixed for me, I have the opportunity to optimally coordinate my studies and my work-study job, and at the end of the day no one cares where or when I worked, but what the outcome was. So mobile working means a great relief for my everyday life. I can make good use of waiting times, catch flow moments, and best of all, nothing stands in the way of a visit to my home in the Black Forest or a trip abroad. I can always take the work with me.
The way of working changes
Even though this form of work is currently very trendy alongside the home office, it certainly does not only bring advantages. Having work with you at all times also means that work and private life become more intermingled, communication with colleagues has to find creative ways, and irregular working hours with many interruptions quickly become the norm.
