It seems like everybody’s going global these days, doesn’t it? 

Following seasons of huge recruitment challenges for businesses here’s looking at you, Great Resignation   it’s no wonder employers are taking a wider view of the world of talent. Movement limitations due to the pandemic have stopped highly skilled talent from entering markets, leading to significant skills shortages over the last two years. Now that restrictions have been lifted, local talent are seeking international opportunities as they rush to travel or return to their home countries. 

But a global talent pool isn’t the only plus of a global team. The list of benefits is long. When you open up your workforce to worldwide talent, you give your business a competitive edge. You benefit from diverse thinking, and gain insights into international markets. You can access incredible skills, and solve business problems more effectively. It truly is a win-win situation.

They’ve missed out on international talent while larger businesses with more money and resources reap the benefits. But the tide is changing.
