Virtual Workforce Trends: Taking Work out of Office

Virtual Workforce Trends: Taking Work out of Office

In any given coffee shop on any given day, it is easy to spot the virtual workforce with their laptops open and headphones on to help minimize distractions. Telecommuters. Remote or virtual workers. Work-from-home employees. Digital nomads. All of these terms refer to talent who accomplish some—or all—of their work at a location that is not a company office, such as a home or at a café with a WiFi connection.

Virtual work isn’t new, but the number of people working out of the office has increased dramatically in recent years. Not surprisingly, increased remote work coincides with the rise of smartphones and other mobile tech that allow people to take the office with them wherever they go. Additionally, collaboration and messaging tools—think Trello and Slack—have become so sophisticated, virtual work can happen in real time.

 
 
 

The Impact of H-1B Visa Changes on Hiring & What to Do About It

The Impact of H-1B Visa Changes on Hiring & What to Do About It

Recent shifts in the H-1B program are impacting hiring for highly skilled roles, especially in sectors that rely heavily on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) talent. The changes followed President Trump’s 2017 executive order, “Buy American, Hire American,” that called for a review of H-1B and other policies thought to impact American workers and products.

For many organizations in the STEM field, this has made filling their available roles much more difficult – particularly for those that already rely heavily on H-1B talent. To compete, these companies must boost their employer brand image, enhance their training and succession planning, and increase their overall flexibility and agility when it comes to hiring.
