Are Borderless Careers Here to Stay?
Whether we call 2020 the year of the pivot, the year of awakening or the year of chaos one thing is for sure, the status quo was interrupted.
From large corporations to small businesses, relationships, health and family life we all felt some degree of shift in our day to day lives.
One of the biggest shifts in 2020 was the conventional way we have always done business.
Remote work, while accepted in certain industries, as a whole was not considered the most effective or productive way to drive results in business. Many leaders I spoke with in 2020 shared that they did not think the model was possible before being “forced” into a shut down early last year.
As a result, many organizations have made conscious efforts to shift their work models to allow a hybrid effect of working from home a few days a week and into the office a few days for that much needed human interaction. And there are many roles that have moved to full time remote access.
2020 has shifted the model of how we work, this also means the way we attract talent to new career opportunities has shifted as well.
Careers that were once defined by location and flexibility to relocate have been re-evaluated and expanded beyond major metropolitan centers and country borders. Introducing the new concept of borderless careers.
Borderless careers simply put means careers without the limits of location. Opening up new access to talent pools, flexible work arrangements and new possibilities for both businesses and the job seeker.
