In the last two years, the digital transformation witnessed by society and businesses paved the way for a more connected globe. Organisations and employees suddenly embraced change, while adapting to the new challenges triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic. This is the “New Normal”, they say. However, before remote work was cool and way before the pandemic emerged, nearshore providers and professionals around the world have been working remotely from the very beginning, in the 90’s.
Remote work is the biggest heritage of Covid-19, but the technology industry is the actual pioneer of remote jobs. From rookie startups to the biggest players in the technology market, these organisations’ tech talent is used to working remotely within the project from the start.
Remote jobs empower nearshore
Nearshore has its genesis in remote work. This business model relies on delegating IT processes and services to an extended team in a nearby country, where parties (client and nearshore provider) are generally in the same continent and share similar time zones. Some of the key advantages of outsourcing to a nearshore software company include closer proximity, cultural and mindset alignment, and cost-effectiveness.
As a result of direct access to a larger talent pool of experts, nearshoring is a great tool when it comes to gaining capacity and efficiency. Hence, one of the countless benefits of remote work is that it makes it possible for nearly everyone to cooperate with almost every company around the globe.
There are no barriers when it comes to sourcing the best tech talent in the world… wherever it may be. At Prime Nearshore, we celebrate multiculturality and cross-cultural exchange. Our culturally diverse delivery teams provide unique backgrounds and mindsets leading to exceptional perspectives and innovative technology solutions.
Remote work works and is good for your health
Particularly in large cities, people waste immeasurable hours of their precious time in traffic to get to work. Whether you commute by train, automobile, bus, subway, or bicycle, in which case there are transportation costs associated.
The Washington Post had already stated back in 2016 that, according to a massive body of social science and public health research, commuting is associated with negative effects on personal and societal well-being. “Longer commutes are linked with increased rates of obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, back and neck pain, divorce, depression, and death.”
Telecommuting, first coined in the 1970s, refers to working from an employee’s own home or anywhere he/she prefers, for instance appropriate workplaces like libraries or even coffee shops, instead of a traditional office environment. Without forcing IT professionals to relocate or commute, this approach opens new doors to new kinds of collaborations, as well as to healthier and happier ways of living.
Whether you need to spend more time with the kids, you’ve chosen to stay fit thanks to a daily workout or even decided to invest in your own education with a new course, remote work provides you with greater power over your personal life. All it takes is a laptop and a good Wi-Fi connection.
The best global tech talent working towards goals at Prime Nearshore
Remote work in software development has grown to be the new standard instead of the exception.
The pandemic triggered a radical transformation in organizational culture and location became less important in every recruitment process. Given this mindset shift, work from home jobs allowed organisations to expand their talent pipelines and recruit across new markets. At Prime Nearshore, we deliver the best global tech talent under the same seal of excellence.
Considering that a healthy work-life balance is now as valuable as salary, beyond remote work, Prime Nearshore also provides flexible schedule. This develops the feeling of autonomy for employees to establish their own routines and what works best for them. With this kind of freedom, we believe we’re creating trust-based relationships and investing for the long term.
To make it happen, we implemented a growth mindset culture and established processes for remote teams to deliver operational excellency.
