With many jobs no longer tied to a particular location, the culture of the digital nomad has risen up as a challenger to the office-based 9 to 5. As technology continues to evolve and enable a sense of community spirit as well as facilitating the transactional side of working remotely, the number of workers who class themselves as digital nomads is increasing rapidly, with clients who are commissioning them benefiting from their remote working culture.
But what value could a digital nomad bring to your project, and is there a way to benefit from the best bits of both office-based agencies and free-roaming workers if you are looking for a new partner to deliver work for your business?
