It has been a year since Airbnb launched it Live and Work Anywhere policy, and the Airbnb Chief Financial Officer, Dave Stephenson, says their business has never performed better.

What’s important to note is also that the employees got to keep their salary no matter where they chose to move or work from.

And here’s where it gets better: Airbnb is talking to governments abroad about making it easier for all people to work around the world.

To Read 👀: Four 'future of work' transformations that HR can't ignore!

The future of work is nothing close to being familiar!
