The power of global hiring

Over the past few years, global hiring has proven its strength. Even amid economic uncertainties, organizations are wholeheartedly adopting the global worker model, as they value access to a wider, more cost-effective talent pool.

According to Deel's 2024 State of Global Hiring Report, distributed hiring is continuing to climb and is diversifying beyond tech roles, despite return-to-office measures. Workers are also actively seeking opportunities with global companies, which have been made possible through remote and global workforce solutions. 

By taking this HR certification course, you’ll become equipped with the tools and knowledge you need to bring exciting growth opportunities to your company and workforce. 

We have to rewire our longstanding—and frankly, dated—notion that the best professionals are in certain countries… Employees have unlimited opportunities to work for the best companies out there. They can choose to stay in their home countries and access opportunities they never thought were possible. Those are the values we’re creating today.
