Remote Hiring Trends Report

Talview conducted a Remote Hiring Trends for 2021 survey among talent leaders and recruiters, revealing the impact of remote hiring on diverse teams, newfound technology needs, and how the remote model can drive candidate experience.

Most interestingly, 80% of respondents said their interviewing and hiring process is now fully remote.

Four out of five companies surveyed believe remote hiring can help improve diversity in their organizations. One respondent said: “I love the ability to attract from anywhere in the country, which automatically increases our diversity of experience and thought.” Another noted that being truly global results in “diverse cultures at work and a lot of collaboration, dependencies, and synergies between people in all locations.” Read what other trends stood out below.

Highlights from the report:

  • 80% of respondents said their interviewing and hiring process is now fully remote

  • The top two obstacles to hiring more remote employees are an organization's mentality that in-person workers are more effective (38%) and hiring managers wanting local candidates (36%)

  • 79% of respondents believe remote hiring can help improve diversity in their organizations

  • 73% of organizations are satisfied with how remote work is going so far, while 75% feel satisfied with remote work technologies
