Canva has committed to a flexible work model for its employees long-term, following fellow Australian tech unicorn Atlassian in embracing remote work.

This post points to significant changes ahead for ‘regular’ work.  The changes would correspond well to gig work and implicitly increase the chances that gig work would be attractive to potential consumers.
