Hire abroad

So you want to hire globally but don’t know where to look for talent?

Planning a hiring strategy is hard work, especially when you don’t know where to look. It involves planning, timing and a whole lot of research. The complexities of local labour laws, income tax and salary benchmarking could be enough to put you off. 

But the team at WorkMotion have got you covered. To help you decide which countries to consider in the recruitment process, we’ve come up with resources and tools that can help.

Keep reading as we share two tools that can help you decide where to hire talent for your business:

Tool #1 – Country Explorer

Based on your exact hiring requirements, this tool recommends the top three countries where you should look for talent. 

Here’s how it works:

Select your search parameters by adjusting the scales (from very low to very high importance) according to your requirements.
