The rise of flexible work

The COVID-19 pandemic introduced many employers and workers to remote work for the first time, and there may be no going back for many. As of mid-2022, more than half of job holders in the United States said they could work remotely at least part of the time. This has tremendous implications for hiring. Whereas geography used to be a natural constraint, now any employer can interview and hire talent anywhere. While there are numerous advantages to this new reality, it also strains recruiting teams that suddenly have to evaluate a magnitude more candidates.

Today, there are countless platforms for employers to conduct remote assessments, interviews, and take-home projects. Some platforms offer an end-to-end experience for all of them and more.

As you read through our analysis and reviews, be careful not to limit your organization to how you do things today. Reflect on how your own processes can and should evolve in this new economic reality and with the right tooling. It might be that you can optimize certain steps significantly more than you have in the past.
