Work From Home Attracting Many To Hawaii
Tyson Spiess, 33, moved to Kauai in September with his wife and three young children. He is part of a new group of people moving to Hawaii to work remotely in America’s paradise. Some people may ask how the locals feel about so many new people moving to the Islands from the main land.
New Faces, New Opportunities
If you ask Mahina Paishon-Duarte, a social entrepreneur who developed Honolulu’s Waiwai Collective coworking space, she says that she chooses to see the new faces taking up residence in Hawaii as an opportunity.
“If these folks are bringing in new networks, new skills, new insights, I’m totally open to that as long as there’s a desire to participate and to ground themselves in local culture and all of the traditions and practices that make our home really, really special,” she said.
Helping Newcomers Understand Hawaiian Ways
If you are concerned about how you will be received if you relocate to Hawaii, there is much to learn from the many coworking spaces that exist on the islands. Hub Coworking Hawaii is one such collective. George Yarborough is one of its cofounders.
To help new arrivals understand Hawaii and Hawaiians, Yarborough and the directors of other Honolulu coworking spaces are in the process of designing cultural immersion programs for new remote workers. The goal is to welcome new residents and help them gain an understanding of Hawaii’s unique geography, slang, hazards, history and values.
What does it mean to give and receive aloha? What is the rainy season? What is the role of the aina in Hawaiian culture? What is proper surf etiquette? How do you show respect to kupuna?
“There’s this push to market to these digital nomads and remote workers to attract them to come here, and I think it’s awesome because it sort of reverses the brain drain,” Yarbrough said.
