 On last Monday, August 28th, we opened a <Digital Nomad Meet Up> at J-Space, the collaborative space of Jeju Center for Creative Economy and Innovation. We have discussed about ‘Why remote working?’ at the <Digital Nomad Meet Up ‘Hello Seogwipo!’> last July.

 

 The <Digital Nomad Meet Up> this August started from a notion why we feel so distant from ‘working freely at places where we would like to work’ when there is a boom on ‘co-working spaces’ and an increase in people wanting to live as a ‘digital nomad’. We have decided to look for the answers in companies and public areas that are willing to implement ‘Remote Working’ rather than individual ‘Digital Nomads’. If a company and public institution chooses to ‘Remote Work’ than it is because the ‘Remote Work’ is a ‘Smart Work’!


The Balance of Space - People - Technology; Smart Work

 



 On November 2013, Microsoft Korea moved to its new building in Gwanghwamun, opening the era of “Free Style Workspace”. Various divisions harmonized under the motto ‘the balance of People, Space, and Technology’ and continued the innovation of a smart office. Many organizations are experiencing a lot of trial and errors when they adapted the Smart Office. They say that it is difficult to face the actual results of a Smart Office if you approach it just as a tool and technology when in fact it is a sum of environment, system, and culture.

 


 The prototype of Microsoft Smart Office in Korea is from the innovative activity called 'New Word of Work' which was promoted in 2005. A new work environment based on 'people, space, and technology' and the expansions of working methods were set at this time. Then the human resource department and asset management participated in innovation activities through collaboration. The 'people, space, and technology' is not a slogan but it symbolizes their role. A new work environment and tools must be aligned with the performance evaluations and rewards because it is not easy for the employees to adapt to a new working environment and method without motivation, evaluation, and rewards. The trends in workplace, work, and organizational management have changed a lot but the principles of Microsoft Korea’s ‘People, Space, and Technology’ are still practiced.

 

 There was an increased interest on Work & Life Balance in the mid/late 2000s. In recent years, many companies are trying to have a ‘good workspace to work’ by creating an environment where they can immerse themselves to work better rather than increasing the working hours. As the millennial generation (born in the early 1980s~2000s) involves more in the organization, more time is spent on how to smoothly implement the ‘Work-Life Integration’ rather than spending time more on leisure. This change in values of work and career brings the development of technology and the era of ‘new normal’ in advance.

 

 Microsoft Korea had a mission to provide a new system on compensations and work performance measurements as well as flexible work environment due to the changed values of work. They classified the work styles and attributes to provide a flexible work environment that can bring out the ‘balance of a personal style and a work style’. In addition, the members can select to have a designated seat, undesignated seat, remote working system, or teleworking system according to the business attributes and their roles and responsibility at work. You can also receive IT tools and services based on your working style if you could understand your style and attributes!

 

 But the most important thing is the performance measurement and compensation of the members. In order to practice a smart office run by a member, not an organization, it is necessary to accurately measure the performance of those who concentrated and worked their best regardless of the time and place. And that the compensation for this should be done properly. Only then a voluntary participating culture will be created! Microsoft Korea is trying to specifically look into who they communicated and collaborated to achieve a certain goal rather than seeing how many hours they work at a certain environment for the performance evaluation.



Method on leading your life, Start ‘UP’

 



 Alleys Wonder Lab is a startup that provides a video map service with a crowdsourcing method wherein the public participates and display the contents. It has a relationship with Jeju through the Stay Support Program of Jeju Center for Creative Economy and Innovation and experiment the ‘Remote Working’ system in Jeju. I wonder why they were experimenting ‘Remote Working’ and what kinds of trial and errors they have experienced.

 

 Many of the members of the company are from big corporations. They said they have created a pleasant balanced Life & Work environment with flexible working hours and horizontal company culture. Thinking that as a startup company, they need at least one game machine inside the office and barbeque party as well as telecommuting is obviously possible if the members wanted it. However, they said they soon realized that it was a common mistake of a startup representative with a realization that the horizontal culture and flexible working hours should be a ‘tool for increasing work efficiency’ and not a ‘tool for motivation’!

 

>>> Common mistakes of a startup company representatives

      (partial document from Alleys Wonder Lab CEO Kim Ji Hwan’s presentation)


①Silicon Valley said startups have liberal and horizontal culture.

Isn’t it thankful enough for them to come and work at a startup company? We should reward them with these welfares.

A liberal ambience and flexible working hours will motivate the employees to work harder.

Rocketpunch ask us to write down the advantages of the company. Shouldn’t we at least mention these?

Google, Facebook, Baemin provides these office as a welfare.

 

 After that, they said they implemented a ‘limited flexible working hours’. Employees can come to work at any time they want to but they must participate in the 11AM meeting and should constantly update and share each other's goals and work mainly around the meeting hours. The members may freely schedule themselves to achieve their goals but the company executed a ‘permission system for holidays and notification system for working at home’. If you wish to work from home today, it must be done with a condition that you will ‘complete the work by saving the commuting time’ not because ‘you do not want to go to work’. And they do not regularly do a meeting or a workshop, but do it in a sense as a reward after seeing them achieving the goal.

 

 In the end, you’ll find out that these attempts are consistently executable when the ‘tools’ are useful to increase the efficiency of work. As part of such effort, they participated in the Jeju Daum, a Stay Support Program of Jeju Center for Creative Economy and Innovation last April. The CEO of Alleys Wonder Lab, Kim Ji Hwan told another member of the company to experience the digital nomad at Jeju and said to ‘meet 100% of the work while enjoying the stay’. If the work performance of the month is 80%, then it is a failure but if it reaches 120%, it is a successful experiment and when it is reached, he promised for an expansion. As a result, the experiment failed because he said that it was a business environment not suitable for a developer. But because this experiment was a failure, it does not stop their attempt to experience. They analyzed the results and are planning for another experiment. They are going to ‘Nepal’ after ‘Jeju’ for a global project. We look forward to Alleys Wonder Lab’s Remote Working experiments as well as their projects.

Adding ‘Smart’ to public services




 The Jeju Smart Welfare Center is a test operating organization opened on August 2016 after being selected as the ‘top 300 government’s 3.0 highlighted promotion projects’ in 2016. It is the first ‘welfare center without a building’ based on deinstitutionalization of social welfare. It is a system wherein the social welfare center goes to the people who need the services and not making them visit the center.

 

 The main business of Jeju Smart Welfare Center is not much different from those of general welfare centers but there is a big difference on the operation and maintenance expenses. It is said that a huge investment is made on designing and having additional facilities for the disabled people and seniors. Although more than 100 won costs to build a building, the disabled and elderly people who are uncomfortable in moving are experiencing a great inconvenience to visit the welfare centers.

 

 The Jeju Smart Welfare Center utilizes the empty spaces in town with a minimal space for an office. It is much easier for the people to receive services, such as running a lifelong education business in an empty space within an apartment of low-income families. In addition, unlike the general welfare centers, they utilize the ‘groupware’ and various cloud services and tabs as a consultation papers to minimize the use of a paper. Also, it is said that it is increasing the mobility by utilizing the small Segway rather than the conventional vehicles. It is not an exaggeration to say that this is a 'smart' welfare center as it is providing more suitable services to the people who need the welfare services in the blind spots by drastically reducing the time and the budget.

 

 There is no 'building' but there is a 'person' in the Jeju Smart Welfare Center. The meaning of smart work for them is towards the ‘people’. Many public institutions can refer to them as it provides the public services in the right place while saving taxes!



To work smartly, Smart Work

 

 We had a time to share the opinions of the participants before ending the meet up. Some people said the 'Remote Work’ or 'Smart Work' is not something that felt distant from and it was something that they could fully agree to. There was this one participant who left a wise saying(!) that ‘a smart work is finishing up your work fast and doing a creative work by utilizing what is near you’.

 

 There are not many organizations that implement the 'Remote Work' locally or internationally. Although 'Remote Work' is not the right method for every organization, it' is a meaningful way for a 'Smart Work' and some companies have already implemented it successfully!

 

 Jeju Center for Creative Economy and Innovation will collect and share the trial and errors and the know-hows of the remote working companies domestically and internationally in the future. Please watch out the efforts of Jeju Center for Creative Economy and Innovation in finding for remote working companies and in creating Jeju for those remote workers!

 We meet Oh Sun Mi, the CEO of Share Korealast September 11th at J-Space in the Jeju Center for Creative Economy and Innovation. I have also met her in the Jeju Daum program last July. I heard that she was in Jeju with an opportunity to be here again. I wanted to hear in details about how it is on her second month at Jeju and how she is doing with her work. Today and also on last July, Share Korea, films the different places of Jeju to promote it to the Chinese. We decided to listen to the story on how the company started.



# Sharing Korea

 

 Share Korea filming a video content Chuncheon / 2016

 

 

Sun-Mi Oh  After graduating college, I spent my 4 years in China. Then I came back to Korea and worked for an online shopping related work and unknowingly, I became a 10 year experienced professional at this field. Ive seen a lot of people who have been struggling with the domestic market downturn in the past 10 years by meeting with small and medium-sized merchants. But the struggle was not due to lack of their talents. Ive naturally faced the reality of the downturn which was caused by either they lost the market to the big corporations or lack of funds. As Ive been thinking on how to help them, I came across with the Chinese tourists. Then I decided to create my own company to provide an opportunity to show the real side of Korea to them and find a link between a Korean small merchants and the growing individual travelers and improve the quality of Korean tourist products.


 With the meaning of Sharing Korea, the Share Korea was created to inform the real side of Korea to the Chinese tourists. Im promoting various places (business) and products of Korea on Korean/Chinese online sites and posting videos related to travelling on 3 Chinese online sites and blogs.


1.    Chinese video content production and online marketing.

A.    Produce video in Chinese with the concept Koreans tour guide in Korea

B.     Secure/utilize Chinese online video sites (v.qq, youku, tudou, leTV, etc.)

C.    Post at the Chinese online travel blogs (Ctrip, Baidu, etc.), China marketing

2.    Travel package development for Chinese individual travelers.

A.    Plan and proceed Piano Master class for Chinese students

3.    Jeju product sales platform plans in preparation

A.    Planning on the online platform to introduce and sell products that could only be found in Jeju

     (souvenir, specialties, craftwork, etc.) 

Present projects of Share Korea; briefly summarized by the CEO, Oh Sun Mi

 

 Before she came to Jeju where there are many Chinese tourists, she has been working for the Chinese. Also, when I personally asked questions about the language, she was so proficient in explaining without any hindrance.

 

 

# Long relationship with China

 


Sun-Mi Oh Where should I start? Ever since I was young, I had a business mindset so I went to a commercial high school without even thinking about going to college. After I graduated high school, I entered into a company that was not so bad after all but I faced the reality of the society at that time which was about the difference between those who graduated college and those who did not. So I worked for about a year in that company and went back to study and entered the college.


 With the personality I have, a lot of experience and challenge was the goal for my twenties. After graduating college, I was working hard for about a year and a half in a mid-sized company but as I have been working for the same tasks repetitively with no new works, I got a little bored with the job. I wasnt good in English so I want to take this opportunity to learn English and wanted to go to the Philippines. But my friend said Do you think you can learn English which you couldnt do it for the past 10 years by going to the Philippines? and suggested me to go to China to learn Chinese. So I went straight to China and studied for a year and planned to return to Seoul right away. But once again, with my friends suggestion, I got a job in China.

 

 The style of CEO Oh Sun Mi was clearly showed in the way she makes a decision or on her way making a direction with just one offer by her friend. She was practicing her goals, which is to experience and challenge, without any hesitation.

 

Sun-Mi Oh Shortly thereafter, I received an offer from my friend once again. She was working for Dell computer and asked me to have an interview saying that the neighborhood of the office is clean and the environment was good for working. So I did a phone interview with the manager of the team that Ill be working for. He suddenly asked me to sell something through the phone. At first I confidently said I dont have anything to sell. But he told me to sell anything so I explained the DVD player which was in front of me. I got the job with the recommendation of my friend and the manager, who seemed to have liked my answer.

 

When I first started work, the manager asked me It is a 100m speed marathon here, can you do that? and I remember answering so confidently, It would be fun! I like it. Luckily, I was able to settle in quickly and worked for a year and a half. I met Myung Ok at this work too. However, after 3 years and 7 months in China, I returned to Korea to recover as my bronchial was not feeling good so good.

 

 

CEO Oh Sun Mi interviewing at J-SPACE Jeju Center for Creative Economy and Innovation / 2017

 

 

 Now I decided to do something that I want to do. So I jumped into an online startup business where I could start without any capital. Things worked out well than I have expected. I went to give a lecture as a successful startup entrepreneur and received a feedback that I was good at lecturing. So for a while, Ive been doing lectures on online startup business. As I was only having lectures, I got to stop at one point due to my health issues. I couldnt live without any work so I entered into a graduate school (online shopping MBA program). I think thats how I constantly worked on an online related work for years. When I was ready at some point, my sister who was working in a Chinese related industry said there is no proper expert on Chinese marketing and gave me the opinion that I would do well. So thats how I started doing the work I am doing today. The storys quite long, right?

 

 Certainly she has a deep relationship with China. Thanks to the background experience at China, she knew better than anyone else on what the Chinese tourists who come to Jeju needs and on what direction should we interact with them. Thats why Share Korea, as it is named, was possible. What was the reason for her to participate in the Jeju Daum program when she was already working with her staffs in Seoul?

 

 

# A proper trip, real Korea

 
Sun-Mi Oh I had many worries as Chinese marketing was something that I was not taught by somebody else. I was thinking wont it work by applying the online marketing I have been doing in Korea to China? and thought of on how to approach this. Then I decided to post on blogs with videos the contents about Korean trips. And when I did this for a year, I had a meeting with the staffs and said lets do a real business this time as the past works were about understanding the Chinese market. We were thinking based on our experience throughout the years on what the Chinese people need and thought of an efficient item that would help the travel pattern of the Chinese tourist, which was shopping.

 

 This was a business item that could help the tourists who spend all their time in buying gifts to have their trip more like a tour. I researched if there was any business that has the same system and Xiamen, an island in China (island that has similar features with Jeju) started this kind of system already with good results. China definitely has this need. So it would be great to have this in Jeju! That was the first time I thought of Jeju Island. We would like to research more and refine the ideas while staying in Jeju as well as making contents while filming around the place. So thats how I get to apply for Jeju Daum. 

 

 

With the Jeju Daum participants on July Gimnyeong beach / 2017

 

 

 Her stay in Jeju for a month in July has not only helped her business but must have developed it as well. She returned to this place with Bae Myung Ok again.

 

 

Sun-Mi Oh I saw the potential while staying at Jeju Daum in July. I was convinced that my business suits this place. In August, I was in Seoul organizing the documents and wanted to build an infrastructure in Jeju. So I applied again. I also participated in the Pitching Day in August at this place (Jeju Center for Creative Economy and Innovation). I pitched my business item and thankfully I was selected as the excellent idea and became an incubator company of the Creative Economy and Innovation Center starting from September 1st. I think I have confirmed the possibility on this business enough.

# Lying at the café in Jeju

 

 

 Share Korea has three employees and one of them visited Jeju at the mid of July. And I also saw that you occasionally contact each other and work continuously. Some of them were working apart from the rest, basically remote working. I wonder if there were any difficulties while you were in Jeju.

 

Sun-Mi Oh In my case, we need materials and contents about Jeju. To stay in Seoul and travel to Jeju for work causes issue on expenses as there is no accommodation or an office. But thanks to Jeju Daum, where they provide office and an accommodation, it is more efficient as I only have to pay for the plane ticket. That was the greatest advantage for me to participate in Jeju Daum.


 In the case of remote working, we may be able to do this because it is a small organization. But our roles have become clearer while working over the past years. Even without my involvement, we get to do our own work within a fixed period of time. We can work without being in the same space because the work is done in a regular order. For example, if Myung Ok shoots in Jeju and shares the file, Young Seong (head of video contents) in Seoul receives and edits it. In the meantime, Myung Ok plans the next story and works on additional subtitles as well as posting. It proceeded efficiently without any problems or restrictions while I was in Jeju. In fact, when I first founded the Share Korea, Myung Ok and I worked in cafes at Gangnam. We had this regular café we went to and we were the first customer every day. After that, I got an office, but I used to work while travelling a lot, so it seems that my work in Jeju is working well.

 

 She was already working in her own way at Seoul. I asked if there was any merit that only Jeju has or something that it is possible because it was Jeju

 

Sun-Mi Oh First of all, I rented a car on weekends and went to Aewol to eat, drink tea and worked at cafes. I was able to concentrate very well.

 She meant that she worked and travelled at the same time. Obviously, it is something that is difficult to find in Seoul and also it was a figure of a digital nomad that we often talk about. Bae Myung Ok, who was sitting right next to me from the middle of the interview, also said a word.

 

Myung-Ok Bae The prerequisite is to sleep there. We lay down and slept at the café. It was really good.

 

Sun-Mi Oh The work was better after resting. The efficiency went up. Myung Ok also said that it was possible because it was Jeju and that it was really good. I stayed alone at the pension in Aewol during August and I got to talk to the owner of that pension about my job while having a conversation. Then he said that he is also working with China and wanted to talk with me. So we talked while having a tea and naturally I got a cooperative company. I think Jeju has many cases such as this. When you tell them I do this kind of work and then the counterpart would say Oh, I do this kind of work too. We could this part together! This process and connection works really well. I go to play and travel and then also make a business partner. It was really good to be introduced by another introduction.


 It may be difficult to start a meeting in Jeju but when that connection is made, I felt that it was very much different from the temporary meetings in Seoul. The more I listen to her story, the business mind or the item she brought and the working method of Share Korea get along well with Jeju.

 

Sun-Mi Oh Since the company is small and is used to taking care of its own work, we only have one meeting in a month. When we have the main schedule on what we will do for this month, we take care of our own tasks. You manage on what you need to do and organize your own schedule without anyone interfering.

 

 I had a strong affirmation to this story because I think this is the figure of a digital nomad. Building your own working pattern by yourself.

 

Sun-Mi Oh I think remote working and digital nomad is possible once you are able to do that.

# Special time in Jeju Island

 

 As of the interview date, there is only two weeks left on her stay. It could be a long period of time if you say so and short if short. For the last question I asked if she has anything to achieve personally or from the standpoint of the company.

 

Sun-Mi Oh Uhm, nothing personal for the moment. Companys goal is my personal goal. The goal is to build many networks related to the business we are working on. Of course, the thing I want to do the most is to eat Jjamppong at Mirado! The jjampong I ate in Mirado with Myung Ok was so good that I decided to go back in September. Also I realized in my visit on last July, there were so many places in Jeju that I did not know when I came here as a tourist. I want to share and introduce those places to people. If you come to Jeju, I would recommend you to try out Jjamppong and sweet and sour pork at Mirado first. It would only take two hours to go there! Oh, and you must go to the Songak(san) mountain Dulle-gil Trail.

 

 She was mentioning about going back to Mirado with such a happy face. So I told her to join me next time. I was going to ask for more questions but ended the interview here. Isnt the ending just like Jeju? What always need to be presented in the process of work, mindset or product is recharging. Having enough time to rest and charging oneself to accomplish the goal is the charm and gift of remote working in Jeju Island.



 지난 828일 월요일, 제주창조경제혁신센터 협업공간인 J-Space에서 8<디지털노마드 밋업>을 열었습니다. 7<디지털노마드 밋업 헬로, 서귀포!’>에서 왜 제주에서 리모트워크인가에 대한 고민을 나눴는데요. 이번 8<디지털노마드 밋업>'디지털 노마드'로 살길 원하는 사람은 많아지고 '코워킹 스페이스'는 호황을 누리고 있는데 왜 '원하는 곳에서 일하고 살아갈 자유'는 멀게만 느껴지는 것인지 고민에서 출발했습니다. 이 해답을 디지털노마드개인이 아닌 리모트워크를 시행할 기업과 공공의 영역에서 찾아보기로 했는데요. 기업과 공공에서 리모트워크를 선택한다면, 그 이유는 리모트워크스마트워크이기 때문이겠죠!

 

 

공간-사람-기술의 조화, 스마트워크

 


 한국마이크로소프트는 201311, 광화문 신사옥으로 이전하면서 자유로운 근무 환경(Free Style Workspace)’ 시대를 열었습니다. ‘사람, 공간, 기술의 조화라는 모토 아래 여러 부서가 뜻을 모아 스마트오피스의 혁신을 이어 왔습니다. 여러 조직에서 스마트오피스를 도입하면서 상당수 시행착오를 겪고 있는데요. 스마트오피스는 환경, 제도, 문화의 총체로 기술과 도구로만 바라보고 접근한다면 실효를 거두기 어렵다고 합니다.

 

 한국마이크로소프트 스마트오피스의 원형은 2005년 추진된 새로운 시대의 일(New Word of Work)’라는 혁신 활동입니다. ‘사람, 공간, 기술을 토대로 한 새로운 업무환경과 일하는 방식의 확산이라는 기준이 이때 정해지게 됩니다. 이때 뜻을 모음 정보화, 인사, 자산관리 부서가 협력을 통해 혁신활동에 참여했고 사람, 공간, 기술은 구호가 아니라 그들의 역할을 상징했습니다. 새로운 업무 환경과 도구는 업무 평가와 보상제도와 맞물려야 합니다. 일에 대한 동기부여, 성과평가, 보상이 없으면 구성원이 새로운 업무 환경과 방식을 받아들이기 쉽지 않기 때문입니다. 직장, , 조직 관리에 대한 트렌드는 많이 바뀌어 왔지만 한국마이크로소프트의 사람, 공간, 기술에 대한 원칙은 변함없이 지켜지고 있습니다.

 

 2000년대 중·후반 일과 삶의 균형(Work & Life Balance)에 대한 관심이 높았었는데요. 최근에는 많은 기업들이 일하기 좋은 직장으로 거듭나기 위해 근무 시간을 늘리기보다 업무에 몰입할 수 있는 환경을 만들고 있습니다. 밀레니엄 세대(1980~2000년대 초반 출생)가 조직에서 차지하는 비중과 역할이 많아지면서 더 많은 시간을 여가에 할애하는 것보다 업무 일상과 자신의 삶을 어떻게 매끄럽게 통합(Work-life Integration)할 것인가로 바뀌고 있죠. 이처럼 직장과 일에 대한 가치관의 변화는 기술의 발전과 더불어 뉴노멀(New Normal) 시대를 앞당기고 있습니다.

 

 한국마이크로소프트에서는 이러한 직장과 일에 대한 달라진 가치관으로 인해 유연한 업무 환경을 제공하고, 업무 성과 측정과 보상에 대한 새로운 체계를 마련해야 하는 미션이 있었습니다. ‘개인의 라이프 스타일과 업무 스타일의 조화를 끌어낼 수 있는 유연한 업무 환경을 제공하기 위해 업무 스타일과 속성을 분류했습니다. 또한 업무 속성에 따라 지정좌석제, 비지정좌석제, 원격근무제도, 재택근무제도 등을 구성원이 자신의 역할과 책임에 맞게 선택할 수 있도록 했습니다. 업무 스타일과 속성을 잘 파악하면 일하는 방식에 맞게 IT도구와 서비스도 맞춤형으로 제공할 수 있죠!

 

 그러나 더 중요한 것은 바로, 구성원의 성과 측정과 보상입니다. 조직이 아니라 구성원 스스로 주도하는 스마트오피스를 실천하려면 시간과 장소를 구분하지 않고 자신이 집중할 수 있을 때 최선을 다한 이들의 성과를 정확히 측정하고, 이에 대한 보상이 적절히 이루어질 수 있어야 한다고 합니다. 그래야만 자발적으로 참여하는 조직 문화가 정착되겠죠! 한국마이크로소프트에서는 성과 평가를 어떤 환경에서 몇 시간 일했느냐를 보는 것이 아니라, 구체적으로 어떤 목표 아래 누구와 어떻게 소통하고 협업 했는지 그 내용을 들여다보려고 노력하고 있습니다.

 

 

주도적 삶의 방식, 스타트

 


 앨리스원더랩은 대중이 참여해 콘텐츠를 게재하는 크라우드소싱 방식의 비디오맵 서비스를 제공하고 있는 스타트업입니다. 제주창조경제혁신센터 체류지원프로그램을 통해 제주와 연을 맺었고, 제주에서 리모트워크를 실험해보기도 했는데요. 주도적인 삶을 살아가기 위해 스타트업이라는 방식을 선택했다는 앨리스원더랩, 이들이 왜 리모트워크를 실험하고 있고 어떤 시행착오를 겪었는지 궁금했습니다.

 

 대기업 출신의 멤버들이 많은 앨리스원더랩, 꿈에 그리던 자율출근제와 수평적 기업문화, Life & Work가 조화로운 즐거운 업무환경을 만들어갔다고 합니다. 스타트업이니 사무실에 게임기 한 대 정도는 있어야 하고, 회식도 스타트업답게 바비큐 파티, 멤버들이 원한다면 재택근무도 당연한 것 아니겠어, 라는 생각으로 말이죠. 그러나 곧, 그것이 스타트업 대표들의 흔한 착각이란 것을 깨닫게 됐다고 합니다. 스타트업의 수평적인 문화와 자율출근제는 동기부여의 도구가 아닌 업무의 효율을 높이는 도구되어야 한다는 깨달음과 함께!

 

>>> 스타트업 대표의 흔한 착각(앨리스원더랩 김지환 대표 발제자료 중 일부)

스타트업은 자유롭고 수평적이라고 실리콘 밸리가 말했다.

스타트업에 와주는게 어디냐, 우리 직원들에게 이런 복지가 보상이 되어야 한다.

자유로운 분위기와 자율출근제가 직원들이 열심히 일하는 동기부여가 될 것이다.

로켄펏치에 우리 회사의 장점을 쓰라는데 이런거라도 있어야 하지 않겠나

구글, 페이스북, 배달의민족은 이런 사무실을 복지로 제공하더라.

 

 그 이후에는 제한적 자율출근제를 시행하게 됐다고 합니다. 자율출근을 하되 11시 회의에는 반드시 참여하기로 합의하고 회의시간을 중심으로 각자의 목표와 업무에 대해 지속적으로 업데이트하고 공유했습니다. 목표에 대해서는 자유롭게 스케쥴링을 하되 휴가는 허가제, 재택은 통보제로 시행했습니다. 다만, 오늘 재택을 하고 싶다면 출근하기 싫어서가 아니라 통근시간을 아껴 이 업무를 완료할 수 있다는 조건 하에 말이죠. 회식이나 워크샵은 정기적으로 하는 것이 아니라 목표를 달성했는지 점검한 후에 보상의 의미로 진행하고 있다고 합니다.


 결국에는 이런 시도들이 업무의 효율을 높이는 도구로 쓸모가 있을 때 지속적으로 시행 가능한 것이라는 것을 알게 됩니다. 그런 시도의 일환으로 지난 4월 제주창조경제혁신센터의 체류지원프로그램 제주다움에 참여도 하게 됐다고 하는데요. 앨리스원더랩 김지환 대표는 앨리스원더랩의 또 다른 멤버에게 한 달 동안 디지털노마드 실험을 할 것이고, 제주에서 마음껏 즐기시되, 정해진 일의 100%를 채워보세요라고 하고 한 달 동안의 성과가 80%라면 실패, 120%가 되면 확장이라는 조건을 걸었다고 합니다. 결과적으로, 그 실험은 실패였다고 하는데요. 개발자가 일할 수 있는 업무적인 환경에 있어서 적합하지 않았다고 합니다. 그러나 이런 실험이 실패로 끝났다고 해서 그 시도를 멈추는 것이 아니라, 결과를 분석하고 또 다른 실험을 계획하고 있다고 하는데요. ‘제주를 거쳐 이번에는 네팔로 글로벌 프로젝트를 떠난다고 하니, 앨리스원더랩의 리모트워크 실험기와 함께 프로젝트도 기대할만 합니다.

공공의 서비스에 스마트를 더하다

 


 제주스마트복지관은 2016정부 3.0 역점추진과제 300에 선정되어 20168월 개관한 시범운영기관입니다. 사회복지서비스가 필요한 수요자들이 복지관 건물로 찾아오는 것이 아닌 사회복지서비스가 필요한 수요자들에게 찾아가는 시스템으로 사회복지의 탈 시설화를 기반으로 한 국내 최초의 건물 없는 복지관입니다.

 

 제주스마트복지관의 주요사업들은 일반 복지관의 사업과 별반 다르지 않은데요. 하고 있는 일들은 크게 차이가 없지만 복지관의 운영비와 유지비에서 아주 큰 차이가 있습니다. 복지관의 경우 기본적으로 장애인들이나 노인들을 위한 부가적인 시설과 동선 설계에 큰 비용이 투입된다고 하는데요. 그렇게 건물을 짓는데에만 100억원 이상의 사업비가 쓰이지만, 정작 거동이 불편한 장애인들과 노인들은 복지관을 찾아오는데 큰 불편함을 겪고 있다고 합니다.

 

 제주스마트복지관은 최소한의 사무공간만을 두고, 마을 내에 있는 유휴공간을 활용하고 있습니다. 저소득계층을 위한 아파트 내에 있는 유휴공간에서 평생교육사업을 운영하는 등 수요자가 서비스를 제공받기 훨씬 수월하다고 합니다. 이와 더불어, 일반적인 복지관과는 다르게 그룹웨어와 다양한 클라우드 서비스를 활용하면서 종이의 사용도 최소한으로 기 위해 현장에서 상담을 진행할 때에도 상담지가 아닌 탭 등의 기기를 활용하고 있다고 합니다. 또한, 관용차량이 아닌 작은 세그웨이를 활용하면서 기동력을 높이고 있다고 합니다. 이렇게 시간과 예산의 획기적인 절감을 사각지대에 있는 복지서비스가 필요한 수요자들에게 현장에서 더 적합한 서비스를 제공하고 있으니 스마트복지관이라고 하는 것이 과언이 아닌 것 같습니다.

 

 ‘건물은 없으나 사람이 있는 제주스마트복지관, 그들이 생각하는 스마트워크란 바로 사람을 향하는 것이라고 하는데요. 국민의 세금을 절약하면서 공공서비스를 적재적소에 제공하고 있으니 많은 공공기관들이 참고할만 하겠죠!

 

 

스마트워크, 똑똑하게 일한다는 것


<8월 디지털노마드 밋업>에 참여했던 정희정 일러스트·웹툰 작가의 비쥬얼노트 

 

 밋업을 마무리 하기 전 참여자들의 소감을 공유하는 시간을 가졌습니다. ‘‘리모트워크나 또는 스마트워크가 멀게 느껴지는 것이 아니라 충분히 공감할 수 있는 영역이다라는 것을 느꼈다고 하는 분도 있었고, ’스마트워크란, 주변에 있는 것을 잘 활용해서 해야 할 일을 빠르게 처리하고 창의적인 일을 하는 것이라는 명언(!)을 남긴 분도 있었습니다.

 

 아직 국내외에 리모트워크를 시행하고 있는 조직이 흔치는 않습니다. ‘리모트워크가 모든 조직에 적합한 방식은 아니지만, ‘리모트워크스마트워크를 위한 의미 있는 방식이며 이미 성공적으로 시행하고 있는 기업들도 있죠!

 

 앞으로 제주창조경제혁신센터에서는 국내외 리모트워크 시행 기업을 취재하면서 그들의 시행착오와 노하우를 축적하고 공유할 예정입니다. 리모트워크 시행 기업이 찾고 리모트워커들이 일하는 제주를 만들기 위한 저희 제주창조경제혁신센터의 노력을 지켜봐주세요!
