Whether you’re a founder of a startup employing less than 20 people, or part of an enterprise talent acquisition team constantly filling tech roles, the last few years have been a challenging time. While working from home seemed temporary at first, it soon became the preference for a majority of tech workers. 

Some moved away from the major tech hubs to seek more affordable housing or be closer to relatives. As companies embraced hybrid and remote working longer term, they also discovered what some companies knew all along: By opening up roles to remote workers, they expanded their talent pools significantly

This created multitudes of opportunities for employers and employees alike. Employees enjoyed more flexibility in their work days, allowing them better work/life balance and more time to spend with family or on self-care. Instead of commuting and paying to park downtown, some spent time working out or putting kids on the school bus. 

Employees outside of “traditional” tech hubs discovered new opportunities with better compensation and benefits, working for innovative companies many miles away. Instead of being limited to jobs and companies a commutable distance from home, someone in a rural area could work for a Silicon Valley powerhouse. 

Meanwhile, employers realized there were so many undiscovered, talented people suited for their roles. Instead of sourcing from the same saturated markets, recruiters filled roles faster by looking outside of them. This democratization of opportunity also paved the way, in many cases, for companies to make greater strides toward DEI goals. 

If your company is ready to realize these benefits but you're not sure where to start or how to navigate the complexities of hiring across borders, we’ve written an eBook to get you started.
