Today, there are more people working remotely than before the pandemic. Gartner reports that 30% of employees worked remotely at least part-time before the pandemic, compared to 48% post-pandemic.
A decade ago, remote working options were rarely available unless special accommodations were made. The Covid pandemic changed that. Teams have proven they can be productive – dare we say more productive in a remote environment.
Teams have reimagined where and how we work.”
Great Talent Is Everywhere
Finding the right people for your project is hard. Not to mention finding people that fit your culture and core values.
If you’re a business leader and haven’t started looking at talent outside of your geographic area, you’re missing the boat on a chance for your organization to perform at the highest level.
The world has changed. Great talent is everywhere, and we finally have the infrastructure and business mindset to look beyond local limitations.
While large-scale remote working is a recent phenomenon, nearshore providers in Latin America have been building their remote muscles for many years.
Nearshore software development is when a company has distributed teams in countries that are in the same or similar time zone.”
If you are in the US, you can’t afford not to look at nearshore software development. Nearshore offers more affordable operating costs and access to highly qualified professionals from across Latin America and Canada. You benefit from a geographically diverse yet integrated team aligned in the same time zone to maximize collaborative work time.
A Successful Partnership: Nearshore + Agile
If you’re considering augmenting your staff or adding dedicated teams through nearshore, but you don’t have experience vetting nearshore providers, the most important thing to consider is how a partner delivers.
Maximizing collaborative work time and output with nearshore is about more than the right talent and an aligned time zone. To ensure productivity and maintain high-quality work for teams separated by hundreds or thousands of miles, you need a partner who lives and breathes Agile in everything they do.
Running distributed remote Agile teams can be a challenge to managing and maximizing your team’s output (i.e. ROI). More and more people are working remotely now with companies that have never run distributed remote Agile teams. Some are struggling to perform at the same rate of performance compared to previous models.
For over five years now, HatchWorks has run successfully distributed remote Agile teams for software and data projects. There is one constant among all of our customers: the desire for flexibility and quicker time to value.
Our Agile approach embraces collaboration and feedback loops to validate ideas, reduce uncertainty, and drive positive changes that lead to your success.
HatchWorks is the Right Nearshore Partner
We see it every day, companies fall back into antiquated methods, insisting all employees be onsite for most of or all of the work week. Not surprisingly, these are the same businesses that are limiting themselves to the shallow end of the talent pool.
It’s no longer about going to the office. Instead, what matters most is having the right talent, being aligned by time zone, and sharing the day’s work.
