Tips for Recruiting and Managing Remote Workers

Wanted: Qualified Individuals All Over the World!

The lack of geographic constraints associated with the hiring of remote workers can be liberating, as it allows us to select the most suitable applicants for each available role. Assessing a remote worker is no different than assessing any other employee, and can be achieved through initial contact via email, telephone or Skype. As such, we cannot find any distinction between the two.

The purpose of an interview is to gain an understanding of the applicant, their level of expertise, and how they could integrate into the company’s environment. Here are some recommendations which may assist you in locating and recruiting a remote employee. Suggested activities include: conducting online research to gain an understanding of the applicant’s experience and qualifications; utilising video conferencing or telephone interviews to ask questions that are relevant to the role; and making sure to provide an accurate job description to ensure the right candidate is being sought.

  1. Establish Goals and Management Policies

    We are now looking for a talented and driven remote worker to join our innovative team.

    Employees who work remotely should not be seen as independent contractors or temporary workers; they should be subject to the same management and working structure as onsite teams, regardless of their physical presence. It is important to make this clear to them from the outset. For example, the employer should outline their operating hours, and ensure that the new employee adheres to them. To facilitate project management, parameters such as milestones, status meetings, progress reports and frequent communications should be discussed. Additionally, employers should be confident that the remote worker is committed to the role for the long-term. Just as an employee working in the office is expected to remain with the organisation, the same should be true for a remote worker. Employers should ask the potential employee to explain how they see themselves developing with the organisation, and ascertain how committed they are to joining the team.
  2. Take into Account Cultural Variations

    Employees are the cornerstone of a company’s culture and are just as important as the skills they bring to the business when it comes to the bottom line. Collaborative workspaces, break areas with sofas and TVs, a games room, a cafe and even a gym are great places for employees to mingle and get to know one another outside of the traditional “water cooler” setting. Although telecommuters won’t be able to benefit from these perks, they can still build morale and productivity through positive interactions with their colleagues. A simple way to do this is by inquiring about a candidate’s country of origin, culture, personal history and leisure activities. Showing enthusiasm for the candidate is a great way to demonstrate whether or not they would fit in with the company’s culture.
  3. Work with a Reliable Staffing Agency.
