Are you sure you want to logout now?
Thanks to the pandemic, companies now know ‘remote works’. So, what next? Hiring the right kind and most efficient remote employees. However, hiring an employee completely based on a resume is not enough. Following proven techniques for hiring remote employees can help organisations land desired candidates.
Here is a complete step-by-step guide to remote hiring.
1. Identify your requirement
The first essential step is to know your requirements for hiring a remote employee – will the position be fully remote, or work from different locations, or a scheduled work-from-home?

For instance, if you are hiring a remote team from scratch then probably hiring someone with remote experience would be wise, but if the remote position is more of a perk then probably it doesn't require experience.
2. Create a clear job description
A clear job description will help you attract the right candidate. Since you are remote hiring, it is important to lay out all the requirements by using relevant words – “online remote jobs”. Usage of relevant words will help filter candidates looking for certain openings.
Keep your work description concise and clear. Doing so will prevent miscommunication.

There are two approaches here, either you can hire directly or you can opt for an agency.

b. Do they have any concerns regarding the company?
c. How do they manage productivity at home?
d. How will they manage work conflict if it arises?
e. What are their preferred work timings?
5. Assign a task
