Greece or Barbados: Who will attract employees – “digital nomads”
According to Bloomberg, a new category of workforce has emerged, with significant interest for the countries which will attract it. The so called “Digital nomads”, viz. individuals working from home, who are able to work from anywhere in the world, as long as they have a stable Wi-fi connection.
Countries with favorable and pleasant climates, which are considered “Tax heavens” or simply “tourism-traps” have entered the competition to attract this new “aristocracy” of workforce.
Greece, with the recently introduced tax motives and the special spot in tourist hearts, is claiming a position amongst the countries which will attract individuals who wish to transfer, in order to work fully from Greek ground. The Greek government financial advisor mentioned in Bloomberg: “Technology means being able to chose where we live and where we work.”
British Brexit is an additional factor in the significant mobility which is expected within the following period, and it is certain that Greece will attempt to attract talents and homogenous individuals from abroad, in order to reverse “brain drain” and promote the idea of “working from the beach”.
