‘A Great Reassessment.’ ‘Labor shortage.’ ‘The Great Resignation.’
For all of their clever wordplay and endless coverage, headlines are doing little to quell the fears of employers everywhere hoping to uncover some yet-untapped wealth of talent.
But for countless organizations, every stone overturned yields little human capital, and still, life – and business – go ever forth.
So businesses are relegated to a Goldilocks quandary: Demands are high, available talent is low, and no one is just right?
Let’s just say it and get it out of the way: Hiring is hard. Or it at least seems that way.
To be clear, it was never easy – it’s time-consuming and expensive. But there is another way.
Making The Case For A Remote Workforce
Many of you were forced to go remote last year. And, admittedly, you did your best.
For so many of you and your industries, there was no blueprint for how to go remote. So you researched, looked at industries to your right and left, and on a hope and prayer, trudged forward as best you could.
No small feat. But you did it. You rose to the occasion, and you did it.
But that was last year. This is now. You know, the Great Labor Shortage Resignation-a-thon.
And now? Now, it's estimated that by the year 2022, 53 percent of the U.S. workforce will be remote. For comparison and perspective, just five years ago in 2017, roughly 5.2 percent of the workforce was remote.
We moved an entire decimal place in just five years.
That talent you need? It’s out there, and it just so happens we know exactly where you can find it.
We’re talking about a talent pool that traverses city, county, state and even country lines.
