Hiring employees internationally in India in a post covid world

Hiring Employees Internationally in a Post-Covid World

The pandemic has affected people and businesses worldwide egging many to rethink and reevaluate their existing business models. As a result, many firms are also reexamining how they approach new hires to add to their existing workforce. 

Remote hiring, which was earlier an option exercised by a Professional Employer Organisation (PEO) in exceptional cases, has now evolved to become a regular, seamless, virtual process.

Remote hiring is now the norm rather than an exception

Earlier companies offering PEO services or EOR services would look at remote hiring as an exception rather than the norm. It was mostly used as an option while hiring candidates internationally (who were based abroad). However, with travel restrictions and social distancing norms in place worldwide during the pandemic, it led to companies exploring hiring remotely. 

Candidates are being screened online, interviews are held via video calls and even onboarding and training is now being organized virtually. While this has motivated companies to come up with innovative technical solutions to adapt to a changing world it has also highlighted areas that needed to be addressed. These include ensuring employees bond with the company and their colleagues and have an outlet to express their feelings. Top firms understand this and have hired the best PEO services to take care of hiring remotely and ensure that new hires are introduced to the firm’s work culture via engaging activities. 

The best PEO services can help you overcome the challenges posed by the Great Resignation

The top firms offering PEO services in India have come up with a remote hiring model that works, and have also used zoom meetings, webinars, and other activities to engage with employees regularly. At a time when the Great Resignation is a reality and attrition is at an all-time high, it has become even more imperative for employers based abroad to hire the right PEO service or PEO companies who can engage with employees regularly and retain them with these employee-specific activities.

Hence, the post-Covid world has led to businesses facing new challenges like retaining talent. Top firms based abroad are already looking at the best PEO companies available to help them make this transition while ensuring they do not lose talent to the competition. From celebrating festivals online to having virtual get-togethers and bonding over exercise and other fun sessions, these PEO firms now have the experience of handling and organizing events both online and offline while taking care of everyday tasks. It’s a multipronged approach that has helped them succeed in a competitive market.
