Location-independent working is a peripheral issue in the world of work in Switzerland. Is this impression deceiving?
Lorenz Ramseyer: Yes. It concerns more people that you might think. Over half of Swiss employees are what are known as knowledge workers. They are not tied to a specific working environment which means they can work from anywhere. A third of them also take advantage of this opportunity occasionally. A digital nomadic life isn’t restricted to freelancers abroad. It can also be integrated into the everyday routines of permanent staff – on a selective basis and in Switzerland.
