‘Smart work’ system gains popularity in Korea

The mass introduction of smart gadgets in the country has not only changed the lifestyles of many Koreans, but also impacted the way people do their jobs here.

A recent consumer study conducted by U.S.-based firm VMware found that at least eight out of every 10 employed Koreans could be dubbed “smart workers,” indicating that they have somehow adopted a flexible working style ― mobile offices, virtual meetings and working in remote areas ― into their workplaces.

According to the report unveiled at a press conference in Seoul on Wednesday, about 82 percent of “smart workers” said they worked outside of the office at least some of the time, with 76 percent working at home and 64 percent working on the road.
