Most employers try to manage their payroll costs to stay competitive. Whether you’re a small business owner in need of some IT help or an entrepreneur who needs software developers to create a website, I have a solution for you: remote recruiting. 

Sure, most people love to save money. But unlike the retail market, companies looking to fill job positions cannot take advantage of coupons, limited-time sale prices, or two-for-one specials.

Yes, two heads are better than one – but you can’t hire this type of employee.

What is a Remote Recruiter?

Remote recruitment refers to the same occupation as that of local job placement agencies: locating potential employees for a particular company. But remote recruiters focus their efforts in overseas and/or emerging markets where skilled workers are plentiful and available. 

On the other hand, hiring remote workers means employing people who work outside the office. They rather work at home, at coworking spaces, or live in other countries. These days, remote workers are being distinguished from the 4.7 million telecommuting employees in the US. And since 2005 the number of virtual workers has increased by 159%.

How to Hire Remote Employees?

The best option for hiring the best remote employees is by a remote recruitment agency like DistantJob. This way, you procure that those remote employees will fully integrate into your company instead of hiring freelancers that work for themselves, prioritize projects according to their workloads rather than devoting all of their efforts towards achieving your company’s goals.

As for outsourcing a division, you face the problem of delegating authority to an unfocused manager responsible for supervising unknown workers.

With remote recruiting, however, you get the best of both worlds. Your business can take advantage of a larger talent pool and reduce personnel costs while maintaining direct control and oversight of remote workers, just like regular full-time employees.

Moreover, remote recruiters have an intimate understanding of the various remote worker markets so that they can find you the most highly qualified applicants possible. Most importantly, a remote recruiting agency has the commitment and experience to find remote workers that possess the required job skills, communicate adequately, and be willing to embrace your company’s core values.
