Growing up, one thing we knew for sure was that all work and no play had a way of making Mom and Dad cranky . . . and who could blame them?
Unlike us kids, who could look forward to summer breaks because it meant long days ahead for playing and hanging out with friends (and no homework), our parents pretty much had to work year-round, with only weekends and an occasional break for holidays or family vacations to look forward to. Even then, it usually took a few days for them to “leave the work behind”—if they could at all—so they could unwind and enjoy the time off.
Summer was always prime time for family vacations. We kids were off and our parents could usually get some time off, too, which meant it was time to escape for some family fun.
Summer is still the favorite time of the year for families to take vacation. Gallup reports that 55% of American adults plan to vacation this summer, with a majority likely to take time in July (51%), followed by August (35%), June (29%), and September (10%). (These are numbers, that year-over-year, have remained steady for a decade.)
The Modern Workplace
While parents these days still must work pretty much year-round, the world of work for them has changed dramatically over the past few decades. Work is more flexible in terms of location, schedule, and workday structure. As a result, more and more employees find themselves no longer stuck behind the same desk or in the same cubicle day after day, week after week.
According to its “2017 State of the Remote Job Marketplace” survey, Flex jobs (a leading job search site specializing in remote, part-time, freelance, and flexible jobs), there are now 3.9 million Americans (about 2.9% of the total US workforce) who work from home 50% or more of the time. That’s up greater than 100% from 2005 when only 1.8 million people worked remotely, and hiring experts expect that within 10 years more than one-third of US employees will be working remotely, at least part of the time.
With that many people working remotely, today’s workers require a convenient and reliable way to take their mobile offices with them on the road, to their offices, to their homes, or even with them on vacation—a way that offers the ultimate in protection, storage, and easy access to their computing gear and electronics, accessories, files, folders, and other office miscellany.
Mobile Office Solutions
So while it’s not like being on vacation, working remotely from home (or wherever you happen to be) can give your attitude and your outlook a big-time boost. Granted, no one really likes to work on vacation, but sometimes knowing that you can take care of those one or two nagging items you couldn’t quite get to before you clocked out for vacation can make all the difference in your ability to unwind and enjoy your time away.
