Building a ‘Plug-and-Play’ Work From Anywhere Policy

Following on from our recent blog post about “5 Things to Consider When Building a Workation Policy”, a frequent complaint we have heard from HR and Global Mobility teams was how long it takes to get cross-functional buy-in to agree on a work from anywhere policy.

Even if there is buy-in from the C-Suite, maybe it’s the corporate tax team who could be holding back discussions, worried about Permanent Establishment risks.

Sometimes it might be within the global mobility function, who simply don’t know where to start when putting together a work from anywhere policy.

All of these influences above mean it can take as long as 18-24 months to get agreement on implementing a work from anywhere policy.

With that in mind, we thought it would be helpful to put together a ‘plug and play’ work from anywhere post to help you quickly draft and then launch your own work-from-anywhere policy.

To help you get a quick-start when drafting your work from anywhere policy, and given it’s the season of giving, we’ve taken some of the hard work out of it by drafting a workation policy blueprint for you to customize to your company’s risk appetite. You’ll be able to download the template at the above link.


PwC Survey: WFA Important Criterion For 81% Of People Under 40 When Choosing A Job

This survey by PWC caught our attention in recent weeks.

Not unsurprisingly, WFA is considered  an important criterion for 81% of the people under 40 when choosing a job.

Another paper by Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman evaluated what activities people like and dislike. They found that the second most disliked activity was work.  

The number one most disliked activity?

Commuting.
