In 2022, organizations will continue to face unprecedented hiring challenges. Not least because the pandemic has changed how we work. For instance, many businesses now operate on a hybrid basis. I.e., employees' time is split between the office and home. On top of that, unemployment has fallen to a record low of 3.6% in the US. As a result, many businesses have struggled to fill vacancies during the year's first quarter. In fact, as many as 80% of organizations say that thanks to the ongoing skills shortage, they're having difficulties filling openings.
Businesses can respond to these hiring challenges by widening their net to include global candidates. With remote work becoming increasingly accessible globally, more and more companies are looking to recruit overseas talent.
