There was a time, before globalization, before NAFTA, when buying a car made in the US was, let’s say, highly encouraged.
I knew mechanics who literally refused to work on foreign cars because they were seen as supporting a foreign country, instead of our own economy.
It made sense back then, before everything became so interdependent, multinational, with your carburetor made in one country, the engine block in another, upholstery from somewhere else and the whole thing put together in yet a different country.
All the large companies several decades ago realized that with advances in transportation, in shipping, in logistics and communication, that manufacturing can happen in many places around the world.
That same type of revolution is happening in the small business world today.
Especially since the pandemic has normalized remote work, the concept of maintaining a local workforce has become almost quaint.
I was meeting with a potential client, and my Executive Sales Assistant was there to support me. The potential client was amazed at her poise, her knowledge, and her ability to add value to the conversation.
The large corporations have led the way towards a globalized workforce.
It’s time for your business to capitalize on this development using virtual employees to increase profitability by reducing labor costs.
The challenge is finding high quality employees in foreign labor markets is even more challenging than using employment boards here in the US. You have to wade through so many rejects just to find the diamond. Add to that, the logistics on paying them, doing business properly in that country, and getting them paid properly without overpaying.
