How to hire virtual employees?

Despite an uproarious year that 2020 has been, it has made us adapt the new normal that is “working from home” or “working virtually”. Organizations had no choice but to let their employees be distant and work from their home throughout the year, and as the year has passed statistics have changed drastically. 94% of surveyed employers have reported that the company’s productivity has been the same (67%) or higher (27%) since the employees have been working virtually during the pandemic.

So, it does mean that people have accepted and adopted this culture quite well. If we talk about the literal meaning, Virtual employee is just like a regular employee who works from their home or virtually instead of coming to the workplace or office and generally isn’t directly appointed by the organization.

We shall update you with some benefits of hiring virtual employees for your business:

  • Cost reduction: If you opt to hire virtual employees, the overhead costs like renting or buying office space or payment of utility bills, you’ll have to buy or rent bigger and better workspace in case you take a step ahead to hire more and more employees for your firm. Virtual employees save you from all those expenses and also the salaries of virtual employees are often fair and reasonable.

  • Increased productivity: According to one of the surveys, 95% of the respondents believe that their productivity has been higher or same and 51% said that they have been much more productive while working from home or virtually than before.

  • Better opportunities: Saving yourself from the expenses of upgrading or relocating, you could hire employees from around the globe who’d offer you a different set of skills and you can operate worldwide through them while saving your time, money and energy.

These have proved to be major benefits as a business owner over the world and the numbers say the same. We here at Shergroup as an organization also have been practising the same and have been working with employees from the US, UK, South Africa and India etc. But the question now arises how can you find and hire the perfect fit for your firm?

  • Make sure you have a check on the job description you wish to send out, being aware of your requirements is a must.

  • Determine where you are planning to hire employees and how will the functioning take place further.

  • Conduct interviews keeping your offers on the table and asking about their previous experiences or so.

  • You can also start with a trial assignment or project so that to be sure and have an idea of how they work and of course of the routine that they follow while working.
