1:00 PM Remote Teams -The Global Business Tool of 2021

Shifting to a wholly remote environment has been the challenge of 2020 and as we all settle into the realization that remote work will likely continue into 2021, companies are discovering that it could be a major source of growth.  

First, there’s no guarantee everyone will go back to the office. Companies may only need 34 percent of the office space they had before, and this reduced dependence on real estate could indicate financial savings. Another perk for companies is the recent normalization of global team syncs via videoconference.  

Because of this, companies no longer need to hire people in commutable distance of the office, allowing for greater diversity. Operating virtually provides an opportunity to build diverse teams and strengthen your company’s probabilities of success. However, it’s important to know where to start and have a trusted partner to guide you through the global hiring landscape. 

Since efficiencies for both employees and companies have been found in 2020, hiring wherever the talent is should be top of mind for HR teams. International teams generate operational excellence, greater revenue, expanded brand awareness, and allow diversification for businesses. Globalization Partners will present its 2020 study on international, remote teams and how to reap the rewards of global expansion.

Key Themes:

·        Understand how companies can open the door to a major source of growth. 

·        Come away with optimism: We’ll discuss efficiencies found, thanks to 2020’s shift to home offices. 

·        Learn from the best: We’ll share strategies companies are employing to operate virtually and grow internationally. 

·        Identify the top 4 countries for international expansion in 2021, according to global executives surveyed in September 2020.
