69% of companies globally report talent shortage and difficulty in hiring.
With baby boomers retiring and moving out of the workforce and the millennials relatively ill-prepared to take on the roles left behind, there is a large, unanticipated gap in the skilled labour pool.
Attracting the right talent is a major challenge when you are hiring within a specific area or geography because the talent pool is limited. The one you are choosing may be the best of the lot that applied, not really the best fit for the job.
The competition is fierce as one good candidate is contacted by several recruiters and may have more than one job offer in hand. Persuading them to choose your company over competition can be a challenge.
A long time-to-hire is the direct by-product of a shortage of qualified candidates. Further vacant positions can delay operations and can prove to be costly.
Millennials have different aspirations from work and life. High salaries are no longer enough. Apart from better pay talents now expect more flexibility, better work-life balance, better perks etc.
When you are hiring remotely, geography is no longer a concern. You can tap talents on a global scale.
Businesses enjoy reduced costs as they save on office spaces, infrastructure, maintenance and other recurrent costs. Remote workers work from the comfort of their homes and use their own amenities like electricity, internet etc.
In a remote work setup employees don’t have the stress of long commutes, heavy traffic or bad weather and can immediately start working when they start their day. This allows them to maximize their working hours.
Remote workers enjoy a stress-free life free from office politics or distractions and a better work life balance. This helps to stay more productive than their office counterparts.
Office work limits flexibility. However, that isn’t the case with remote working. You have the flexibility to adjust your schedule as per your convenience and commitments. Talents these days demand flexibility and a healthy work life balance.
