The Global Employment Miracle

The global employment miracle

If the world is a big library, then we’re the post-it-notes drawing your attention to the important bits. We’re keeping you up-to-date with the future of work and business!

The global employment miracle

We live in a global economy.

Not a national, or local economy.

You might buy your TV, car, clothes, or computer from a local shop (or Amazon), but 90% of those items are sourced from overseas.

Even your vegetables are commonly grown overseas. And much of the energy we use: oil, gas, and coal, is usually also from elsewhere.

As for the proudly All-American brands, Apple, Levis, Ray-Ban, Nike, and Harley Davidson, they all manufacture offshore.

It’s the way the world works.

People vs products

People vehemently support local employment and oppose immigration, yet they wear Italian shoes, drive a German car, and wear Chinese-made clothing using Indian cotton.

As times get tough, businesses now realize that they can also source their staff from overseas. They can hire great staff at a fraction of the cost.

Typically you can save 70% on employment costs – while still paying a fantastic salary to the employee.

Technology has allowed the world to leapfrog immigration politics, border control, and workforce migration. Now, people can pick up a laptop and work from anywhere, for a company based anywhere.

It’s… liberating!

In the last week alone, we have had 464 companies requesting over 700 full-time offshore staff. They come from 28 different countries, from almost every sector – transport, finance, marketing, accounting, e-commerce – needing practically every role imaginable – digital marketer, accountant, data analyst, researcher.

We match those businesses to high-quality outsourcing firms who can recruit outstanding talent – for a fraction of the price. Here are some examples of recent candidates (from our Tues edition):

This is nothing to worry about. It should be celebrated.

We are truly a global economy, and everyone stands to benefit.

Just 20 years ago, this kind of employment was not possible. In another 20 years, it will become the default.

As a business owner, your business will be stronger, more resilient, efficient, and profitable. Profits and taxes will return to the community – as always – enriching your community and keeping the virtuous circle going.
