Flatio launches its first Digital Nomad Report 2023

25. july 2023 · 2 minute

Today we are excited to announce the launch of our highly-anticipated Flatio Digital Nomad Report 2023.

The comprehensive study looks at the state of digital nomadism in 2023, shining a light on the motivations, frustrations, and favourite destinations of digital nomads across the world.

To compile the report, we sent a survey of 32 questions to our database of over 25,000 digital nomads with 1,200 people responding on a range of subjects:

  • annual earning
  • taxes
  • employment status
  • accommodation preferences
  • social causes.
  • many other

Radim Rezek, co-founder and CEO of Flatio, said:

“Digital nomadism is not just a trend, it’s the future of business, travel and living. We wanted to have a deep dive into the lifestyle as we struggled to find recent data on the current state of digital nomadism. Some of the findings in the report were fascinating, especially relating to the number of digital nomads that are in full-time employment. Previously, digital nomadism was for freelancers, entrepreneurs and location-independent workers. Now it seems anyone can do it, which will undoubtedly have a positive impact on productivity, health and overall contentment amongst workforces.”
