Globalization is a process driven by international trade between numerous nations and cultures, and the cultural exchange that occurs in this process has had a significant impact on the last few decades of commerce and politics. For example, imagine playing The Beatles’ Abbey Road on your smartphone—you are playing music from 1960s England on a modern device engineered in the United States and manufactured in China! A more mobile professional workforce makes this possible, and part of this mobility comes from globalization, whether we like it or not.
What does this have to say about the way companies hire in the 21st century? Think about the sheer size of the talent pool that can be reached from video interviews, as opposed to companies sticking to their own country or locale. Bringing in talent from around the world offers more interesting ideas, processes, and experiences to companies, making for a more diverse and engaging workplace.
Many companies hire from all over the world through video calling services because they allow for a more natural interviewing experience than simply by email or phone call.
