Canary Islands 'a paradise for home-working employees'
11 November 2020 @ 10:58

ALL IS not lost for the beach tourism industry – in fact, warmer parts of the country are starting to become destinations of choice even for those with no annual leave left.

The pandemic brought a sudden, enforced change in job practices, with everyone who was able to do so working from home during lockdown, and this has continued for many employees even after the confinement ceased.

Some parts of Spain are starting to see restrictions once again, but these are, typically, a ban on travelling into, rather than out of, the region where you live.

For that reason, residents in northern and inland parts who have holiday homes in coastal areas they use for summer and long weekends have been upping sticks and moving to them where their jobs allow them to – and if they work from home, they are not restricted as to where they live or stay.

And some workers who do not have holiday homes have even temporarily moved in where the weather is better.

The Canary Islands is swiftly becoming a remote-worker's paradise, according to its regional government.

“It's sunny, I can work well, I can carry on enjoying life and I feel safer than at home, in terms of the Coronavirus,” one worker reports.

Working from home can depend on the net connections /speed.
Often a problem on the islands (also in Spain ! )
