Rural Hybrid Talents

Rural Hybrid Talents

The COVID-19 crisis has propelled remote work for organizations. For many workers, this negatively affects their creative and innovative capacity, as well as their overall well-being. Working remotely can increase feelings of loneliness and anxiety, which can impact mental health. The reduction of spaces for curiosity and exchange can limit opportunities for learning and professional development. This happens because learning is not only about courses or training, but also about daily habits and interactions, such as hallway chats and camaraderie.

While this happens, rural areas of Spain are experiencing severe depopulation, threatening a way of life, endangering traditions, and disconnecting communities from their roots. New technology is a potential game-changer to bring significant change to rural areas and facilitate the development of new, vibrant ecosystems.

The combination of remote work and empty villages is a big moment for companies. They can help stop rural areas from losing people by focusing on their team’s creativity and well being. Through shared experiences of coliving in rural Galicia,we can bring life back to these places and foster innovation and community growth.

What is Rural Hybrid Talent?

Rural Hybrid Talent proposes a minimum one-month coliving experience for remote workers, aimed at companies concerned about their employees’ well-being and who believe in the power of collective inspiration.

By helping your employees to come and live together in a rural coliving space, their creativity and social connection are nurtured, benefiting both them and your company.

Additionally, our approach is based on collaborating to the revitalization of rural life, fostering a sense of community and contributing positively to the local area.

Coliving as a perk

We offer a discount for your employees to come to Anceu Coliving, a rural space for remote workers where collaboration and creativity are fostered in an international and intergenerational environment.

Voluntering as a value

We open the opportunity for your employees to understand the challenges of Anceu village and participate in finding solutions with the local community so that your company contributes to the sustainable development of rural areas.

We believe in rural life

Under the slogan “Think globally, act locally, revive rural”, Anceu Coliving has been around since July 2020, helping its community enjoy and contribute to a different way of life.

Life outside the hustle and bustle of a city teaches us so much about ourselves. Our rural coliving space is experimental, letting you reimagine how to live and lead a better life with those around you.

We create bridges between rural and urban through technology while keeping its distinct connection to nature. Based on what we know and what we learn, we do our best to give back to Anceu’s village and the community that surrounds us.
