Spotify, one of the world’s most popular music streaming services employs 5,584 people in 79 different countries. The platform has recently made headlines as the latest tech company to implement a flexible work model in response to the ongoing pandemic. The company announced that it is adopting a “Work from anywhere” model, allowing employees to choose whether they want to work from home. Even after the pandemic ends, this work-from-anywhere paradigm will remain in place. Spotify’s announcement came just days after Salesforce declared that the “9 to 5 workday is gone.” Employees at Twitter will now function from home indefinitely. In the coming weeks, it will be fascinating to see how many other businesses follow suit and allow their employees to work from anywhere.
In a recent blog post, the company said, “As part of our ongoing Dynamic Workplace campaign, we’re re-evaluating our office spaces around the world.” Spotify’s ultimate aim is to provide a space for workers to remain inspired, pool capital, and build, whether that space is at home, in a conference room, or in a café. Employees will have more control over their schedules. Staff who have greater control over their daily lives would have a better chance of achieving a healthier work-life balance. Spotify argues that productivity cannot be determined solely by the amount of hours spent in the workplace. The organization believes that allowing employees to choose where they work would improve productivity and work ethic.
Spotify is also adding more location-based versatility as part of their work from anywhere model. Employees will be able to choose the country and city in which they will operate. Employees that want to operate remotely but also need a dedicated office would be able to use the streaming company’s facilities. Music industry professionals who do not live in major music capitals can profit from the company’s new work scheme.
