Remote worker sets up ‘green screen’ office at beach!
Social media users are clashing over a viral video that allegedly shows a remote worker setting up a green screen at the beach. The short clip shows a man walking by a sheet of green fabric attached to a makeshift wooden frame and is captioned ‘Spotted: a fellow remote ‘worker’ setting up his ‘office’ green screen for the day.’
Whilst it is unclear exactly what the man is doing, the clip has still managed to spark debate over what’s acceptable when it comes to home working.
At the start of the pandemic remote working became routine for many office workers, when countries around the world told employees to work from home, and many staff have continued to work remotely at least part of the time. Earlier this year, jobs site Indeed revealed that searches for remote work had grown from 0.23% of searches in December 2019 to 2.4% in December 2021.
Although that’s a small proportion overall, the company said some sectors were recruiting significant numbers of remote workers. The sector highest proportion of remote adverts was software development, which advertised 44% of jobs as remote.
