The Benefits of Hiring in Latin America
By: Rafael Reyes
Covid isn’t necessarily over but it’s forgotten and since most aren’t taking the precautions of before you would believe remote staffing and working from home would go back to the way it used to be pre-Covid but that’s not the case, and in this challenging economy, international hiring may be the solution your company needs, but first of all what is remote staffing?
WHAT’S REMOTE STAFFING?
Both large and smaller businesses use staffing companies in Latin America to reduce costs without limiting themselves to their local talent. When you direct hire a home office position in Mexico or the rest of Latin America you can choose between hiring an independent contractor or an employee, but in the end, remote workers are no different than regular employees except they have work-from-home jobs and are international. Now that you have a general idea of what hiring remote teams means, why choose a recruiter in Latin America?
WHY IN LATIN AMERICA?
In general, hiring a remote staff or letting your current employees work from home has its upsides but choosing to hire a remote team from Latin America is still less than what you’re paying in the US, Canada, and other parts of the world but with an abundance of benefits to go with it on top of cost-cutting.
Talent Pool & Professional Diversity
One of those advantages is the vast talent pool that you can tap into by sourcing from Latin America. You can find high-level English-speaking candidates skilled in various areas such as sales, business development or management, and tech.
Small Timezone Gaps
The time difference in time from you to your remote hire can vary depending on where in North America you are and they are in Latin America. Regardless, the timezone difference is still much less inconvenient than in Asian or African countries this allows for communication to be facilitated which makes it easier to manage your remote team.
English Level & Cultural Parallels
Aside from other reasons, the fluency level is high since it’s an obligation in most schools in Latin America to learn English and a lot of students take a particular liking to it and grow to have great communicative skills. There are also plenty of native speakers from English-speaking countries scattered throughout Latin America, whether they are ex-pats, dual-citizens moving back long term, temporary residents, and for example, people raised in the US and move back to their country of birth in Latin America. All these things raise the proficiency level in Latin America to be even higher than in India and China. In the last few years proficiency has been increasing. Spanish and English are in the top 5 most spoken languages in the world so your business may benefit from the bilingual talent there is to find in Latin America.
