Walt Disney had no idea how right he’d be when he had his employees write the song “It’s A Small World After All.” China is but a phone call away and you can video conference with people in South Africa in mere seconds. As technology globalizes, it tightens the world’s community. From 2000 to 2011, the number of people globally with access to the Internet grew over 520 percent!
So what’s stopping you from hiring employees that live further away? Or letting your employees work remotely? According to the Harvard Business Review, remote workers are more engaged and it can have many benefits to both your business and your employees. The ideal candidate may not be in your backyard but for practically the first time ever, that doesn’t matter!
However, your business may not be able to sustain this type of model right now.
Do it with Unified Communications. A UC system can provide your business the flexibility to have employees everywhere for very little cost. Your employees could be a just phone or video call away, available at the touch of a button or keystroke – with little cost to you.
Rethink your office space. Break out of your cubicles. Send your employees around the world. Because it is a small world after all.
