Location-independent work with mobile devices
Mobile working means working from any location with the aid of information technology (“remote work“). Provided they have access to a network, employees can use mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets or laptops to access company data and work from virtually any location. If this work takes place from the employee’s private sphere, it is also referred to as teleworking or home office.
