- The Centre for Economic Policy Research estimates that 34% of American jobs can plausibly be performed from home.
- Trends Exchange further predicts that upwards of 30% of the workforce will work from home at least part-time following the pandemic. That’s approximately 49 million workers.
The pandemic forced a titanic shift in our corporate culture and the residual effect will be a massive increase in the number of people given the option to work from anywhere. Thus, creating ample opportunity to serve this growing class of workers.
But the home office will not be a carbon copy of the corporate office. The home office isn’t even confined to the home. Instead, it becomes a flexible, transportable work setup. It eliminates the decades-old desktop setup, where you’re confined by a desk and chair. And replaces it with wearable smart glass.
PwC reports that currently fewer than a million jobs are impacted by AR and VR and this will rise to 23 million jobs by 2030.
“We’re building a new computer for 21st-century professionals. Nimo Planet will replace everyone’s physical, multiple-monitor, and stagnant desk setup with a pair of smart glasses that allow them to access more than 6 workspace screens at once, each up to 60 inches. And best of all, it’s an office space that you can carry with you everywhere – from the train to the plane to the cafe,” says Rohildev Nattukallingal, Founder and CEO at Nimo Planet
The 2020s will be defined by an increase in “work-from-anywhere” employees. Coffee shops will benefit. Rural economies will benefit. As a whole, Main Street will benefit.
