Still need convincing? Here’s 5 reasons why you should hire remote employees?

1. Talent.

Traditional recruitment revolves around finding an appropriate candidate who is a) within commuting distance or b) is willing to relocate for your role. This element often means letting go of a great candidate simply because they don’t want to commit to a hefty commute. When you hire talent remotely however you open up a massive talent pool for potential hires and you don’t have to deal with the nitty gritty of commute issues.

2. Cost to hire. 

Hiring remotely ultimately saves you money. When you hire remotely you have an increased talent pool as mentioned above. You can  hire remotely in countries where the salary costs are lower for example. And of course naturally, you wont have to pay for those pricey travel expenses.

3. Productivity.

It’s an age old debate, are people more productive at home or in the office? The stats however, don’t lie. Studies show that people are genuinely more productive at home due to reduced commute stress and a comfortable relationship with their home environment. So if you want to reduce cost and up your productivity, why not hire remotely?

4. Retention. 

Employees see working from home as a massive pull factor. If you have work from home offerings on a full or part time basis then employees are far more likely to stay with your company. After the pandemic, this factor is going to be a major deal breaker. It’s always good to remember that retention isn’t just good for your wallet but it’s also good for your employer brand.

5.Diversity in the workplace. 

If this year has thought us anything, it’s that we need to be more diverse when it comes to hiring. The BLM protests have catapulted an age old issue to the forefront and many organisations need to step up. By hiring remotely you once again extend that pool of candidates and can therefore hire more diverse employees. Additionally, when you combine people of different races, religions, cultures, and life experience you immediately add more viewpoints and value to your business.

Here at Talent Cloud, we think it’s time to consider hiring remotely.
