“Technology now allows people to connect anytime, anywhere, to anyone in the world, from almost any device. This is dramatically changing the way people work, facilitating 24/7 collaboration with colleagues who are dispersed across time zones, countries, and continents.”
-Michael Dell, Dell
Local companies are facing a new challenge with remote work being the new norm. With the ability to work from almost anywhere, diverse talent and highly skilled professionals are being outsourced to various companies all over the globe. Talent Acquisition Professionals are seeing large brands such as Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, and Starbucks converting traditionally onsite positions to remote. Local businesses could be losing their local talent to global enterprises due to this new norm.
Hiring the Right People
Although remote work provides employees with the benefits of a more flexible working environment and a better chance at securing their dream job, the competitive online space can make it hard to secure a position. Employers are also having a difficult time enticing the right people to apply. When seeking out these highly skilled candidates, it’s crucial to focus on proper compensation and benefits, as well as how you can improve remote working conditions. Applicants are likely to be applying for similar roles as they’re seeking out the advantages that remote work offers over onsite roles. This is a variable that was not at the forefront of decision-making when applying before. It’s important now more than ever before to offer flexibility to work from home when bringing in new talent.
Hiring the right talent that aligns with your company’s culture and mission ensures success on both sides of the relationship.

The Challenges & Benefits of Hiring Remote Workers
Statistics show that bringing on remote workers is causing hiring issues in many industries. These include a major influx of applicants due to the removal of a single location and testing for new required skills from remote workers such as self-management. Despite these challenges it also holds benefits for both organizations and new hires. Remote working positions enable businesses to diversify skills that may have been hard to find in a specific location, which can also minimize overhead costs.
Remote work is a highly competitive market for both hiring managers and applicants. Outsourcing the hiring process will cut down on time taken weeding out the unqualified candidates and refocus on the right talent for you.
How to Have a Strong Company Culture
Research shows that only 14% of CEOs today have the essential “leadership talent” needed to expand their business. Having a strong company culture that you can showcase is going to help find equally strong candidates that align with your brand mission. Employer branding, one of TalentoHCM’s solutions is one way to transform efforts in the area of talent and acquisition and bring top talent to your organization. So, it is essential to make sure to highlight your approach, values, and expectations to attract the right workers.
Nowadays, all workers depend on your online presence to learn about your business. Having a social media presence that reflects your company culture is great for your target audience. However, when hiring new talent nowadays, they will more likely be looking to LinkedIn for current employee comments and reviews, and other employee review sites. Treating your employees right and compensating them fairly, in alignment with both side’s values, is going to attract candidates that feel as though they are a good match.
Having TalentoHCM on your side will help you to streamline the process by finding the right people that you are in search of. We seek out specialized talent based on the skills you want to bring in and the extra talents that match well with brand values.
