Workers and companies see benefits of remote work
The pandemic-era trend of working from home remains a key feature of the job market — and is likely to stay entrenched as a permanent perk for a broad swath of the workforce, according to labor economists.
In 2019, about 5% of full-time work was done from home. The share ballooned to more than 60% in April and May 2020, in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic.
That’s the equivalent to almost 40 years of pre-pandemic growth virtually overnight, research shows.
The share of remote work has steadily declined (to about 27% today) but is likely to stabilize around 25% — a fivefold increase relative to 2019.
“That’s huge,”. “It’s almost impossible to find anything in economics that changes at such speed, that goes up by 500%.”
Initially, remote work was seen as a necessary measure to contain the spread of the virus. Technological advances — such as videoconferencing and high-speed internet — made the arrangement possible for many workers.
Both employees and companies subsequently discovered benefits beyond an immediate health impact, economists said.
“It’s still an evolving trend, but the movement is very much toward increased remote work”. The pre-pandemic baseline of going into an office five days a week “is dead” for many workers.
There are large variations by occupation and geography. For example, jobs in retail, transportation, hospitality and food services are far less likely than those in technology, finance, and professional and business services to offer work-from-home arrangements.
Permanent work for a salary becomes an anachronism. Many specialists work for themselves, already cooperating with several companies and clients at once. This round of development of work culture is characterized by the active use of online platforms that allow you to quickly select an adequate performer based on his rating and the conditions under which he is ready to complete the task assigned to him.
Online personal services exchanges may well provide jobs for workers (and white-collar workers).
We recommend looking towards new opportunities associated with the emergence of services in which customers are ready to pay for your work in cryptocurrencies.
The cost of cryptocurrency transfers is negligible and you can send one million dollars and pay no more than $1 per transaction.
With a concrete example, we will show how the Quasa Connect blockchain service works, setting up transactions between freelancers and clients using new crypto settlement tools.
QUASA is the world's first remote work application offering cryptocurrency payments between clients and performers.
By connecting your crypto-wallet, a performer or customer instantly settles among themselves using the Quasacoin (QUA) cryptocurrency.
The new crypto-settlement tools in QUASA democratize access to services traditionally tied to fiat money and banks, and open up opportunities for hundreds of millions of people. You are not tied to the currency of any country, and you can easily receive assignments from clients from anywhere in the world, even if you work in a country where the circulation of dollars is limited.
There is no need for conversion and complexities with banking operations. No need to know the laws of different countries.
Install the Metamask or Trust Wallet crypto wallet apps on your phone. These are reliable applications used all over the world. Register on a crypto exchange like ProBit or KickEX.
These are simple steps that will allow you to exchange the received cryptocurrency for any other currency.
For example, Binance has a built-in p2p platform where it is easy to exchange cryptocurrencies for dollars.
In the Quasa Connect app, find tasks from clients from anywhere in the world, now it's possible!
Connect your crypto wallet to the Quasa Connect app and answer published tasks.
Complete your profile and add a portfolio so clients can see what you can do, find and select you.
After the customer has chosen you and entrusted his task, you will begin the implementation, and when completed, click the “Finish” button.
The reserved money will go to your balance in the application when the customer accepts your work.
Click "Withdraw" and receive Quasacoin (QUA) cryptocurrency to your personal crypto wallet.
Quasacoin (QUA) is a cryptocurrency that was specifically created for settlements between freelancers and clients, so you can always exchange it for any other.
On decentralized exchanges like Uniswap, SushiSwap or Balancer, exchange QUA for Bitcoin, USDT or any other cryptocurrency. You don’t even need to register on these exchanges, everything is anonymous. You also connect your Metamask or Trust wallet and change QUA. Very safe and secure.
In many countries, payments in dollars are difficult, but there are no problems with cryptocurrencies. And if you live in one of these countries, then, receiving payment in cryptocurrency for your services, you can easily exchange it on p2p exchanges for the currency of your country.
