  5. The New Wave of Nomadic Workers


Though the term nomad worker often brings to mind images of those traveling with the seasons from one manual-labor based job to another, a new form of white collar nomadic workers is steadily growing on a global scale. We can divide these nomads into two types:

  1. Nomadic workers cross geopolitical borders and boundaries as members of corporations or as individuals in order to work.
  2. Corporations and individuals whose workplace is not centrally located, allowing them to work anywhere in the world.

With these two kinds of workers increasing year by year, how do we as members of society deal with these changes? What can we do to survive in such a rapidly changing world?

Author Oishi, a leader and researcher at the “Nomad Research Center,” documents the careers, businesses, work and lifestyles of those living in Southeast Asia. This illuminating volume on the ins and outs of nomadic working styles is filled with hints on how to adapt to this new working style, how to raise children well-equipped to become nomads themselves and more.
