Remote Hiring


The “Great Resignation” has hit the tech industry hard. More than 4.3 million people in the U.S. voluntarily left their jobs in January per the Bureau of US Labor Statistics.  

Talk about a brutal wake-up call! 

The grief of great resignation is hanging over our heads. Today, the number of employees quitting or thinking about doing so is at an all-time high. 

Organizations that plan to turn a blind eye amidst this storm will have a hard time battling this phenomenon. Others who face the reality, analyze the reasons for employee dissatisfaction, and take action quickly will have an edge in attracting and retaining top talent. 

The Great Resignation & Its Impact on the World

While the much-discussed Great Resignation is the subject of heated discussions in US media, it has also caused employees all over the world to analyze their current state of work. 

Factors such as poor remuneration, inflexible working conditions, and unbearable workload have resulted in employees quitting their jobs.

This coupled with the pandemic was just the push people needed to prioritize their mental well-being, their personal passions, and work-life balance above all. 

The impact you ask? Employers from all over the world started to look for the answer to the all-important but often forgotten question – What’s the best way to retain talent?  

Remote Hiring – The Golden Solution to the Great Resignation 

The problem of great resignation leaves a gaping hole in skill sets in many companies. Many are struggling to fill positions in the technology sector where there is a high demand for skilled resources. 

So how can we dodge the bullet of the great resignation and defeat it for good? It starts with breaking the confines of geographical boundaries and moving away from the traditional methods of hiring. 

Thanks to remote hiring, organizations are no longer restricted to hiring candidates in their vicinity.

Technological advancements + remote-friendly tools have given birth to a borderless world wherein organizations get exposure to new skills, talent diversity, and a global pool of spectacular talent. 

Overcome The Challenge of Great Resignation With Great Talent
