Phillips work from home

If you crave for a job that escapes the usual 9-to-5, but still very much like to undertake corporate work, you aren’t alone.
The practice of working outside of an office has been gradually adopted by many organizations throughout the last decade, thanks to technology. As an employee, it allows you to work without having to be confined within your desk space and you can also manage duties in your own time.
Despite the growing trend, there’s still stigma of this practice at times. This is partly due to the misunderstanding of what working away from the office really means. One may think that working outside of an office means you can skive without consequences, but that’s not true.
What then, is the real definition of working outside of an office?
For starters, working remotely and working from home are two seemingly similar yet different concepts. Of course, these are the only types of flexible work arrangements in the market. For the discussion here, we will outline the two more popular and common flexible benefits.
Remote work: The digital nomad
Whether you’re seated at a cafe or sunbathing in a resort halfway across the world, you’re able to connect with your employer or teams digitally. You truly can work from any place in the world, as long as you have access to the Internet.
Due to your variable location, you may never have to meet your employer physically. You’re most likely not required to attend company events or trainings, in person. However, when there are online meetings for necessary discussions, it’s crucial that you remain contactable.
Of course, remote working also means that you don’t have a set office time. Rather, you compartmentalize your own time and fit given tasks into your schedule based on deadlines. Organizations often engage remote workers, who already have good working experience, for smaller projects since little to no training is required.
Another common scenario is that you, already a seasoned employee, have to move due to various circumstances (visa issues, ill family members, etc.) and the company allows you to become a remote worker on a temporary basis. Due to your absence in the physical office, you may feel less involved in the company’s culture and to a certain extent, less connected to the work you do. This arrangement is only ideal if you are comfortable with having little face-to-face interaction with colleagues, and can thrive in a solitary environment.

On the company’s site you’ll find a variety of positions in different specialties like consulting, management, and engineering.
