Abstract

Thanks to digital technologies, place and time have become less important than ever before. Employees have become digital nomads, benefiting from this alleged increase in flexibility. However, little effort has been put forth to understand how they feel about this change. We led semi-directive interviews of people active in the economy of services in Geneva. The results highlight a gap between employees’ fears and feelings, and research interests that may lead to increased human-related risks.
