Ladders, a career site focused on jobs that pay at least $100,000 a year, noted professionals who will see the most remote opportunities are in fields where tech skills and organizational skills are in high demand, such as senior software engineers and project managers.
The study comes on the heels of the talent shortage tightening. New data released shows a record 4.5 million Americans quit their jobs in November.
These numbers are telling. They illustrate that to be successful in this great talent reshuffling, companies will need to go over the top finding people across the globe and offering flexible, work-from-anywhere arrangements.
Moreover, experts note global recruitment doesn’t merely cater to employee desires, but it also empowers organizations to greatly widen their talent pool.
University of Toronto HR management professor Julie McCarthy told the Financial Post that by broadening global recruitment, organizations, “can expand their reach to hiring people beyond their immediate catchment area, and as a result, bring in diverse and different talents from all over. I think if organizations want to continue to attract and recruit top talent, these strategies are quite clever. They can be really valuable incentives for individuals.”
