Update your LinkedIn profile

It’s important that your work and education experience is not only up-to-date but outlined in a way that would bring context for a hiring manager from overseas who may not be familiar with the university you attended or companies you’ve worked for. Is your university highly ranked or respected? Say so. Is your company a market leader in your country? Say so. And make sure to include any awards, accolades, or impressive results that will signal you’re a rockstar.

Highlight your remote work experience

Companies want to hire people that are even more productive at home than in the office. Talk about your productivity journey working from home during the pandemic. Emphasize your wins and accomplishments, such as launching a successful project virtually, implementing an asynchronous workflow, or onboarding new team members through Slack and Zoom.

Look further from home

An increasing number of remote positions are location agnostic – meaning you don’t need to live near the office in order to apply. Make sure you read the job description carefully. Some remote jobs are fully remote whereas others are hybrid positions, meaning you work remotely part of the time and on-site for the balance. While most remote-first companies have now implemented asynchronous workflows that make it easier to collaborate across timezones, always ensure that you clearly understand the expectations around working hours, especially if you’re not in the same timezone as your manager. Nobody likes a 2 am meeting!

Today there are few jobs that cannot be done remotely

The announcement led many companies to question their way of hiring.

Airbnb told its 6,000 employees that they would have the option to permanently work remotely and also told its U.S. employees that they could move to anywhere in the country without a reduction to their compensation.

Although remote work grew remarkably, the announcement generated a lot to talk about in the world of work and led many companies to ask themselves if it is feasible to hire people from anywhere in the world.

Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky announced on Twitter “Five key features” of its new work policy, which goes further than several other tech giants in its flexibility for employees:

1. You can work from home or the office—whatever works best for you.

2. You can move anywhere in the country, like from San Francisco to Nashville, and your compensation won’t change

3. You have the flexibility to live and work in 170 countries for up to 90 days a year in each location.

4. We’ll meet up regularly for team gatherings. Most employees will connect in person every quarter for about a week at a time (some more frequently).

5. To pull this off, we’ll operate off of a multi-year roadmap with two major product releases a year, which will keep us working in a highly coordinated way.

Many companies are already thinking of applying this model. In fact, there are many who have been applying for it for years. Did you know that it is possible to legally hire people anywhere in the world? Contact us

Americans quit jobs at a record pace during the second half of 2021, and more plan to resign in the new year. How can companies take advantage of this situation and seduce employees?

Main post image

Although specialists predict that quitting will continue steadily at similar, elevated rates we’ve seen over the past year, they are not confident that we’ll see another big quitting wave in 2022.
That’s because the tight labor market has pushed companies to offer better benefits and higher salaries, that will keep employee turnover from being “completely rampant” in the months ahead.
What are companies doing to seduce employees?

 

Flexible work arrangements will be the norm, not the exception

The freedom to work from anywhere has become the most sought-after benefit during the pandemic – so much so that people value flexibility as much as a 10% pay raise, according to new research from the WFH Research Project.

More companies will embrace this change to attract and retain talent. Leaders are starting to ask: “How can we give people more power over their schedules? How can we be more flexible?”

Managers that blame external factors for turnover – whether it be government leadership, the pandemic, unemployment benefits or other reasons – and refuse to offer flexible work arrangements will be the “losers who struggle in the wake of the Great Resignation”.

Flexible working culture will lead to better work-life balance and improved mental health for employees. HR leaders know that work will fit around our personal lives rather than our personal lives fitting around work.

 

Remote jobs will become more competitive

As companies struggle to hire in the United States, a growing number of managers could turn to automation and international candidates to fill open roles.

The pandemic accelerated the trend toward automation as companies embraced digital waiters, concierges and other technologies amid social distancing rules and virus fears. In 2020, the World Economic Forum surveyed about 300 global companies and found that 43% of businesses expect to reduce their workforces with new technology.

Economist predicts that companies will make larger investments in robots and artificial intelligence to reduce hiring times and costs even after the pandemic subsides.

 

Those same benefits could push companies to hire more international candidates for remote roles and create even more competition for remote jobs, he adds. In the United States, employees tend to be paid higher wages than people in many other countries. If you’re a remote organization, you can recruit workers from all over the world who can do the same job for a cheaper rate.

An happy employer working at home
Workers get to choose if they wish full-time remote work, part-time or fully return to the office.

Even after the pandemic, the company shared the past week its new hybrid “no return to office” policy that allows employees to decide where and how they want to work.

Cisco’s approach contrasts with some tech giants who have pushed for a return to offices following the rollout of vaccines across the US. Amazon has said it intends to “return to an office-centric culture” for everyone who is not being shot into space at least. Google has signalled it will expect workers to return to offices at least one day per week starting in October.

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Cisco was one of the few companies that already had people working from home. 14% of the staff were remote workers. Last year, where offices had to close forcibly, that number reached 75% of employees working from home.

When most employees began working remotely amid COVID-19 outbreaks and mandated shutdowns. However, Cisco managers found that productivity didn’t seem to take a hit from remote work, in fact it looks like they were more productive when they didn’t have to commute or listen to managers witter on about moving cheese, kicking the ball running or paradigms.

Jeetu Patel, an executive vice president who manages Cisco’s security and collaboration business said: “Anecdotally, I would say we’ve seen a very high degree of productivity. As the productivity has gone up, the thing we have do as a society is to be careful of is fatigue and burnout.”

After internal surveys and managers studying the company’s productivity and outcomes during 2020-2021, they found out that productivity was not affected by working remotely.

Other factors that led the company to choose a hybrid model were saving money and hiring better talent. The main concerns are when it translates to cybersecurity and collaboration. However, Cisco has about $6 billion destined for the research and development of the company. They will be investing in technologies that support the new hybrid work model.

The company expects that 77% of employees will work in the office three days a week and the other days they’ll be working remotely.
