New trends for connected workers

  • Talks & Workshops
  • Our way of working has considerably evolved over the past few years. 

    And how!

    New generation globe-trotters travel the world with their laptops under their arms. They squat internet cafés and co-working areas on every continent. They may be employed by a single firm or freelance for several companies. There are also “slashers” – people who wear several caps and lead several careers at the same time. There are more and more of these multi-active profiles in operation.

    Imagine that these workers and entrepreneurs meet every day throughout the world, offering new dimensions to networking, bringing new projects to fruition, allowing new talent to come together… A true revolution in the world of work.

    These new trends raise questions like that of e-residency and business management. These new business models have given birth to new tasks, such as micro-testing and micro-tasking.

    So, to highlight the new needs of workers and entrepreneurs and new methods of working, Web2day has concocted a series of talks with international speakers with hands-on experience.

    FULL-REMOTE, SEMI-REMOTE OR NO “TELEWORK”?

    E-RESIDENCY POLICY IN ESTONIA

    Friday 2:00 -2:50 pm at the Chapitalk (en) 

    Estonia is the first country to propose e-residency to citizens of other countries. These e-residents benefit from the services offered by Estonia directly via the internet. A way of pushing back borders even further and opening up new opportunities. Two “e-believers” will come to talk about aspects of it: Arnaud Castaignet, who works for the Estonian government on the subject of e-residency and Anna Piperal who is the director of Showroom e-Estonia for Enterprise Estonia.
