Recruit From the Broader Talent Pool

Eliminating geographic constraints allows for a new talent pool for the talent acquisition team. It can help recruit employees in another city or redistribute call center employees strategically so service delivery can span across time zones. Broader geographic reach allows for people to be in the talent pool who wants flexibility.

Drive Outcomes-Based Performance Management

Talent leaders can take dynamic roles in teaching managers about the possibility of bias toward on-site versus remote workers and migrating from focusing on how people work to managing results, like project completion, customer success metrics, revenue goals, and such. HR leaders reported that the most common complaint during the coronavirus outbreak has been from managers concerned about the engagement and productivity of their teams; some studies show significant productivity increases when work goes virtual.

Create a Skill Economy

Remote work helps utilize skills across boundaries and organizations. It builds a better-enhanced team, function, and department. Companies can handle available resources by having a more interchangeable network of skills.
