How the remote landscape changed forever, and how to make it work for you.
The Best Talent is Demanding WFH Options.
While the COVID outbreak that paralyzed the world is starting to fade into the past, it left us with several monumental changes to how we live and work. While this era is often (and rightfully) associated with loss and tragedy, one change that we at TXT are advocates of is the new normal of remote work.
At TXT we transitioned from a traditional office setting to a remote one, and everyone from the founders and executives to the newest consultants is happy with the change. Performance is up, fixed costs are down – we are never going back to the office.
As always, the players who are quick to adapt and evolve come out on top. This is true both for executive search firms, and their clients. In fact, over 90% of the candidates we have interviewed over the past 12 months have indicated that they prefer to work for companies that have a modern, remote-first strategy. If you are a company that offers remote or hybrid working options, you are well on your way to having an advantage in attracting top talent.
TXT has long been a pioneer of digital-first strategy, spearheading a virtual approach to executive recruitment over 15 years ago while in-person interviews and retained-fee search firms reigned supreme. While some may disagree with our position on remote work, we have found the move to be a net positive at all levels of the organization.
To hear about how we’re helping our clients navigate the challenges that come with remote work, lower attrition rates, foster positive company culture in a remote setting, onboard, and engage with new employees with our digital-first approach please feel free to get in touch, we would be happy to talk it over with you!
