In the post-COVID workplace, there has been a shift by companies, in the US and globally, to identify opportunities that yield improved efficiency and reduce costs. Many have made the transition toward hiring a remote workforce, or at the very least diversifying their employee makeup.

This sentiment is further supported by a recent report conducted by Gartner, an American tech research consultancy, on the borderless workforce. This is a phenomenon characterized by talent working remotely from different countries based on employment contracts made across national borders. The report reveals a remarkable surge in organizations adopting this model, with the number of companies engaging in fully remote borderless arrangements doubling over the past three years.

According to Gartner’s findings, nearly six in ten organizations (58%) currently have some IT talent working in a fully remote borderless arrangement. Furthermore, the study highlights that, on average, 19% of the IT workforce in companies embracing this hiring strategy is borderless.
