Post-pandemic hiring means leaders are opening up their workforces to ‘everyone everywhere’ – and not limiting their employee options to a 50 mile radius of their office.
As employees adopt a more hybrid work model and many choose to favor remote work, companies are realizing that they don’t need to hire on the doorstep of their HQ.
They’re discovering another way to win the war for talent: hiring from anywhere. But doesn’t having ‘everyone everywhere’ come with its own challenges? Not anymore.
Luckily there’s a HR tech solution driving the change. Globalization Partners have been leading the way – even growing their own workforce exponentially as a result. Globalization Partners enables anyone to hire anyone, anywhere, quickly and easily, via AI-driven and fully compliant global HR technology.
We sat down with CEO Nicole Sahin to find out how it works.
Nicole tells UNLEASH how her mission is to eliminate barriers to doing business internationally and build global teams that allow people to achieve more.
“There are incredibly bright people everywhere,” she explains, “brilliant minds waiting and able to put to work. When you tap into the potential of everyone everywhere then business leaders can really reach their full potential.
“The fraction of the workforce that was consolidated in just Silicon Valley, Boston and London really was just that. A fraction of the people. Now companies are hiring people all over the place.
What you need to realize it’s that it doesn’t matter where people live, it’s what they bring to the table. The talent is out there and that’s amazing. It’s easier to win the war for talent when you understand this.”
There are other reasons to hire everyone everywhere too – cost.
Nicole explains: “From a business perspective in terms of revenue it is extraordinary too. When you work with everyone everywhere you can hire sales people and marketing people in more locations and ultimately that means you can grow your revenue faster as you go into more markets. The cost metrics of hiring everyone everywhere also means you get rid of rent in these expensive cities.”
Globalization Partners makes it fast and easy for companies to hire anyone, anywhere within minutes via its SaaS global Employer of Record (EOR) solution and is already on track to meet its own forecasted 2021 new customer acquisition goal by 130% and similarly exceed its original revenue projections.
The company’s dramatic growth reflects the demand for high-quality, scalable, global remote work solutions in a business environment that has quickly shifted towards a “remote-first” work culture.
They are reporting record-breaking results with an upwards revised financial forecast of more than USD$1 billion dollars in annualized recurring revenue (ARR) by the end of 2021. To accelerate even beyond this unprecedented growth, the company is currently working to dramatically increase capacity, and capitalize further on its market leading position in what industry experts call a trillion-dollar remote work industry.
“The pandemic proved global remote teams are the way of the future and companies increasingly want to hire great talent anywhere they can find it,” Nicole says.
“We have built a legally compliant SaaS global Employer of Record platform that gives anyone the ability to hire great talent anywhere within minutes without establishing subsidiaries. Companies are turning to us because they know they can trust the quality of our world-class platform and exceptional customer support team to support their global remote workforce.”
In our video interview, Nicole explains how the platform eliminates the challenges around local legal laws and training in different locations.
“Time zones is a thing,” Nicole says of the considerations. “So you need to think about times people can work and collaborate together. Training and learning solutions are there if you understand and communicate in ways that work for that location. That helps us understand each other and get a snapshot into their lives and the cultural nuances.”
Nicole also provides a snapshot into hiring trends globally and the percentage of the workforce who aren’t returning to offices full time. Globalization currently works with big global companies such as Zoom, Yelp, Phenom People…pretty much any big brand who employs globally. “People realize that if they aren’t going into the office full time then they don’t need to be hiring within a 50 mile radius of their offices.
She ends with her mission statement: “Opening yourselves up to a whole world of talent is probably one of the best things you can do for your business and one of the best things you can do for society.”
