How and where do we Germans want to work?
Berlin/Zurich, March 14, 2016: Switzerland is one of the pioneers when it comes to mobile-flexible workplaces. This is what organizational psychologist Dr. Johann Weichbrodt from the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) found out in a study. “Flexible work in the sense of working in different places has been around in Switzerland for a long time,” Weichbrodt said. “Mobile-flexible work based on technology, however, first appeared in the 1980s under the term “tele-home work.” With the new, technical possibilities for mobile working through broadband Internet access, virtual forms such as videoconferencing were then tried in the 1990s and 2000s.” Today, we have finally arrived in the mobile-flexible age. That’s why virtual and “real” flexible workplaces are in demand, with an ever-increasing trend. Satellite Office has also been offering these in Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse since March 2016. From a pure domicile address to your own office, for an entire team or an individual. For hours, days or months: At the new, luxurious Satellite Office location in Zurich, the focus is on the needs of the guests, just like in a five-star hotel. On request, secretarial and telephone services are also available. The number of attractive properties in Zurich has multiplied in recent years. Here it is important to understand customer requirements. The customers who are looking for a dependence or a domicile in the center have to be reached.
