Hiring foreign workers lead to
increased creativity, happier morale
So, you’re thinking of hiring foreign workers. But why do that in the first place?
So often do people forget to ask why hiring people from outside their work
country is beneficial to their company. After all, if it wasn’t beneficial, talent
relocation and forgein remote work wouldn’t be as popular as it has become.
According to staffing firm Robert Half, 62% of employees would consider a move
abroad for their work.
So why not hire a foreign worker?
Higher Talent Workfield
It’s no secret the a country like the United States suffers with low amounts of
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) professionals. To keep
companies from suffering due to this, American businesses can hire abroad to
fulfill the needs of their STEM-related work.
It’s important to diversify the workplace with people who can provide something
that most citizens of the organization’s country cannot provide. The workflow will
not suffer as long as communication between a foreign worker and company is
strong. If both parties cannot communicate in a common language properly, then
hiring skilled foreign professionals needs to be done with more thought.
No matter what, the idea is simple. Hire people with the best skills. If those skills
are higher in foreign workers, then hire foreign workers. It just makes sense.
Improved Workplace Morale
When companies create a melting pot of cultures within its walls, it makes for a
smarter and happier workforce. Employees can share common and unique
experiences with each other, leading to a more interesting shared culture.
Imagine this: David is a fan of an international autosport series, but very few
people in his home country seem to care about this series. Claude is a foreign
worker hired by David’s company to relocate to the business’ headquarters.
Claude is also a fan of this series, creating a common discussion topic between
David and Claude. Both employees could develop a friendship centered around
this series, leading to increased happiness at work for David and Claude.
This is something that can happen no matter what type of company it is or where
the foreign worker is from. As bosses know too well, increased happiness means
increased work performance.
Employees coming from different parts of the world bring different opinions and
ideas to the table. They have different views of how the world should operate and
how people should treat each other. When a foreign worker is hired and relocated
to the business’ country, they bring a whole new package due to their normal life
relative to their birth country.
Just like a writer who suffers from a lack of creativity, a company as a whole can
go through dry spells where it seems to be stuck in mud and stagnant. While a
forgein talent doesn’t always reinvigorate creativity, it certainly raises the chance
of getting out of the mud.
For sport fans: when a manager or head coach is fired and a new one is hired,
results typically improve, especially in the short-term. We aren’t endorsing the
firing of your company’s head coach, but a new set of ideas can lead to a spark in
success in both the short-term and long-term.
Overall, there are many benefits to why hiring foreign talents serves as a net-
positive for your company. From a boost in creativity to a happier workplace,
there’s no reason to not consider it.
