Work from anywhere with Campsited’s mobile data package

A digital marketplace for the open-air economy has launched an ‘Open Air Work From Anywhere’ programme.

Offered by Campsited enables employers to provide their employees with the opportunity to work and live in natural settings across several countries for one to 12 weeks at a time.

Properties are vetted for Wi-Fi availability and suitable working and living amenities, and Campsited offers e-sim mobile data packages for employees to use to minimize data roaming costs.

The programme follows the growth of remote and flexible working policies since the pandemic, with Statista reporting that 30% of employees now work at exclusively remote companies. According to research by Owl Labs and Global Workplace Analytics, 74% of employees feel happier when they work remotely. The reasons vary from not having to commute, to having more flexibility and spending more time with their families.

Employers are recognising the role that flexible working arrangements play to attract and retain employees, with 50% of all global organisations believing that empowering a remote workforce is important (IBM Institute for Business Value).

Campsited described the Open Air Work From Anywhere “the possibility to genuinely make a difference to the health, happiness and motivation of a company’s workforce”.

Outsourced call centre service provider Zevas has introduced the programme to its workforce, “to support the physical and mental wellbeing of employees already working remotely” by providing the opportunity for them to live in and experience another country. Through Zevas’s subscription to the Campsited programme, their 200+ employees will be able to access accommodation options that cater to their professional needs and personal appetite for open-air adventure. 

Campsited said: “The added benefit for our established network of more than 270,000 accommodation sites is a boost in demand outside of peak season.”

Employees can choose to work from a variety of countries, including France, Italy and Spain. Campsited will shortly extend the programme adding properties in both the US and South Africa.
