Sunscreen? Check. Floppy hat? Check. Internet access? Might want to check that out.

With many employers offering the option to work remotely this summer, digital nomads, hybrid workers and more are expected to add additional days to their summer plans with some days designated as paid time off and others as workcation days—when travelers combine work with their summer vacations.

The temporary office is now a front porch, the beach or a lodge in the woods. While a trip to the summer resort or vacation home with no connectivity was once a badge of honor, the new workcation means a fundamental shift in how travelers determine where to go and what they expect from their summer destination.

‘65% Of US Workers Said Reliable Internet Was The Top Concern For Vacation Accommodations.’ | Workcation

What’s evident is that reliable high-speed internet is now as essential as sunscreen as employees stretch the boundaries of hybrid work. According to a recent survey, 65% of US workers taking a workcation said reliable internet was the top concern when choosing their accommodations.

A recent Verizon and Morning Consult study found that people who have moved greatly value a quality home internet connection. Among employed adults who’ve recently moved, half say they’ve participated in work-related video calls at least once per day on average over the past 18 months. Twenty percent of employed adults who have recently moved participate in more than five video calls with clients, coworkers or customers each day.

This trend will likely continue to grow this summer as people opt to work from resorts, lodges, vacation homes or other getaway locations for longer periods of time.

For those working in the hospitality industry, or those looking to convert a property into a vacation rental property for hybrid workers, it’s worth a quick check to see if the right technology capabilities are available for visitors to stay connected and get the job done.
