As technology moves us 'forward' in increasingly interesting ways, it occured to me the other day I might not be the only member of SFN that's had a foot in the Remote Working camp.
But that's just it. Working remotely is remote. You often feel very alone - totally adrift. And not just adrift a short drive down the M5, adrift by 1000Km.
During the past few years I have worked for UK organisations from where I live in France, some may even call me a "Euro Commuter" (I wouldn't dream of using such a glamorous description myself).
On my regular trips to the UK from Béziers (my local airport) I often see the same faces on the Monday and Friday flights to Bristol. I wonder how many other Brits there are on these shuttle planes just like me.
Some weeks ago there was an interesting article on this subject in The Guardian .
I'd be really interested to know if anyone else on SFN has had any experience of remote working in UK/France/Europe - anywhere really.
A friend of mine is a big Health & Safety boffin and hardly has a good word for it.
Certainly from my perspective it's been both a blessing and a curse and extremely challenging at times.
Technology might be incredible, but can remote working really work?
