Boundaryless Recruiting

“There is no failure except in no longer trying.” – Elbert Hubbard

As accounting firms have adapted to a remote work environment, things have happened. Some of these things could be described as – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Team members have been working very effectively. Key people in your firm have become experts at training new hires remotely. Others have worked hard on guiding the culture of the firm. The good? Now, you can hire people no matter where they live. It is called boundaryless recruiting it is going very well for some firms.

Beware, the bad – Now firms from anywhere in the world can reach out to your valuable staff and hire them without the requirement of having to relocate. They can pay them a much larger salary than you are offering and that much larger salary goes even farther if your firm is in a lower cost of living location.

The ugly part is that while you are widening your horizons when it comes to hiring, other firms are doing the same. Boundaryless recruiting has become just one battlefield in the war for people. Don’t give up!
