The number of tech companies that turn to the distributed work model keeps increasing every year. In fact, remote work has become an undeniable element of modern tech culture.
On top of that, last year and the remote experiment due to Covid-19 has radically changed the working habits. For many of us, a significant percentage of the pandemic life has been spent working remotely, working from home or working as a part of a distributed team. This has pushed digital transformation in many businesses, and emphasized the role of technology in connecting teams. It is clear that the world around us is changing, and so are the organizational structures.
But one thing has stayed the same, and that is the need for high quality tech talent in companies. According to the Talent Shortage report, IT experts are between the top three of the hardest roles to fill for a company in Germany. Micro, small and medium enterprises are most struggling with the shortage, specifically out of the latter two, 59% and 74% reported the issue.
To solve this issue, it is important to note that working remotely is not just a buzz word for employer branding. In fact, it was reported by GetApp that remote workers have risen by 400% in the last decade. That can be a game-changer for your company. Hiring and managing teams from a long distance comes with huge advantages and is here to stay.
In this article we will explain why working with distributed teams can solve the tech talent shortage in your company.
