By now we have all become pretty used to the perks of working from anywhere. No matter whether you are a marketer, developer, or graphic designer, accountant, or even a founder – a laptop and a good connection are all you need to stay connected to fellow employees and do your daily tasks. But with the perks, working from a preferred location might also have some drawbacks which are difficult to compromise with – especially when it comes to the salaries of remote workers.
It is far from likely that we will ever get back to the 9-5 in the office. The question now is whether remote work will affect our salaries and result in salary adjustments. With the difference in cost of living and purchasing power in different parts of the world, some international tech companies such as Google have already introduced tools for calculating the pay and the benefits of its remote workers.
As the SEE has become an innovation and R&D destination for many global companies, a significant part of the local tech talent can be considered as remote workers. It is survey time again: In order to explore the attitude of the regional ecosystem towards salary adjustments based on location, we are asking you to share your perspective. Please vote by the 9th of August and share your position and why do you think salaries should or should not be adjusted. And stay tuned for the announcements of the results.
