Despite our best efforts to retain our finest programmer, including providing salary increases and incentives, and even offering to pick up coffee for her each morning on the way to the office, she has decided to pursue other opportunities. We are disappointed that she has chosen to leave, however we must respect her decision and wish her all the best in her future endeavours.
You need not be concerned; you have a full month to identify a suitable replacement for the departing employee once they have given one month’s notice. By the end of this week, a suitable individual should be in place who can be trained by the soon-to-leave employee, thereby reducing any disruption to operations. Rest assured that everything will work out fine. Take a deep breath and remain calm.
It is true that there is a delay in the hiring process, however, the average time it currently takes to employ a new worker is 26.5 days. This means that even if we begin the process immediately, the new worker would only be with us for a few days, which is unlikely to provide the desired outcome.
It is perfectly fine; take a deep breath and let us take care of this. Within two weeks, Works can source an outstanding individual who will not only meet but exceed your expectations. We understand that you have a valid query, and we are here to explain the process. So, here is what happens:
If You Need a Developer, Just Let Us Know.
If you get in touch with us, one of our exceptional professionals will be delighted to discuss your requirements with you. In order to gain a better understanding of your organisation’s culture and its needs, we will ask you a series of questions. We will converse until we gain a full appreciation of both the expertise required for the role and the type of individual who would fit in well with the team.
At Works, we understand that the specifics of your requirements for remote working are just as significant to you as they are to us. Do you expect your employees to log a specific number of hours each week? Also, which country’s public holidays will be respected should any of your remote workers be based overseas?
Our session will finish with a clear picture of your ideal developer in mind, allowing us to go on to the next phase, which is…
We Are Now Conducting a Worldwide Talent Search
Given that the majority of employees surveyed expressed an interest in remote working, we often receive requests to help them find a suitable job.

Once all the applications have been received, we diligently review them to ensure they meet the criteria. Our technical team are chosen based on their technical proficiency and their capacity to deliver successful results while working remotely. We will then arrange a conversation to ensure their expectations align with yours, and if they do, they will be taken into consideration for the last stage of the recruitment process.
The Final Decision Remains in Your Hands
Having been presented with a plethora of resumes, the apprehension of having to replace the star programmer is gradually diminishing. It is now time to start getting to know the potential new team members by conducting interviews.
At Works, we are dedicated to helping you find the best candidate for the job. To aid you in this, we offer the service of setting up video sessions with potential candidates who have already passed our rigorous screening processes. This allows you to focus on getting to know the candidate on a personal level and evaluating their potential contributions to the team.
Typically, our customers may consult with a number of different people before making their final decision. If you are unsure of what to ask, then don’t worry – we have some suggestions for you. When the time comes, you can rely on us to take care of all the hard work for you.
We Take Care of All the Dull Tasks
At Works, we understand the disruption that can be caused by personnel changes and the impact this can have on managing teams and completing projects. To help you move beyond the transient issues related to such changes, we also engage in other activities, ensuring you can quickly return to business as usual.
At Works, we will manage the organisation of contracts and ensure that all relevant individuals are provided with the opportunity to sign them. Additionally, we will make sure to create a welcoming environment for your remote developer, so that they feel part of the team. Furthermore, we can take care of payments and convert any necessary currencies. As we have extensive experience in this area, you can be confident that we have the necessary expertise to handle the tasks. This should enable you to focus entirely on the job at hand.
That’s All There Is to It
In approximately two weeks’ time, a new remote developer will be joining the team to replace the much-loved outgoing employee. To ensure that there is a seamless transition and that the project timeline is not affected, it is essential that the new hire is introduced in the most effective way. In three weeks’ time, you should have a clear understanding of who the new developer is and how they compare to their predecessor in terms of skill and quality. Do you have any information on the person who was previously in the role?
