Distributed work is a work model where companies operate with employees located in various physical locations. This model can include:
- On-site teams working in different office locations.
- Remote employees working from home, coworking spaces, or while traveling.
- Digital nomads who work from various locations globally.
Distributed vs. Remote Work
There is often confusion between "distributed" and "remote" work. While both involve employees working outside a traditional office setting, they differ in organizational structure.
- Remote Work: Focuses on the procedural aspect of working outside a traditional office environment.
- Distributed Work: Involves a more comprehensive approach to organizational structure, emphasizing how teams collaborate and operate across different locations.
