Helping people to work remotely in Tasmania
Register now to shape the future of the Tasmanian Government's Remote Working Strategy
In 2020, we have all lived through the greatest remote working experiment ever. In addition, it is one that we were not prepared for. This experiment has showed us the potential and advantages of remote working for employees and employers alike. Work is no longer a noun and a location rather it is a verb, something that we do not somewhere that we go. Imagine working remotely from Tasmania and moving and living in Australia’s favourite island state. As part of our workshop we will be asking a series of questions to help understand your motivations, the barriers and enablers that will make moving, working and living in Tasmania a reality for you. You will learn from the experience of other like-minded flexible knowledge workers for whom moving to Tasmania is quickly becoming a reality instead of a dream. When you can do your work from anywhere – Make it Tasmania.
