Millennials and Gen-Z workers, one of the fastest-growing and extensive workforce today, often struggle with maintaining a proper work-life balance. The constant hustle of job shifting and the unending talent war takes a toll on their mental health. This is where remote working comes as a blessing in disguise, making work-life balance possible.
After suffering the wrath of the pandemic, we have all experienced a change in working patterns and how the terms working from home, co-working, travel working, gigging, and condensed weeks have become much more familiar worldwide, all thanks to the telecommuting workforce and hot desk policies of the companies. With cloud adaptation, remote working is mostly technology-driven.
In this blog post, we will discuss the novel concept of ‘on-demand’ software development and how it is a win-win situation for employees and employers. However, let us discuss some existing business models and what problems one may face using them before shifting to the more advantageous approach, which we will discuss later in this article.
The indefinite lock-downs during COVID-19 have made businesses of all sizes adapt to remote working as a completely new way of operating. Many surveys inferred that employees working currently from home during the ongoing pandemic would like to continue working in the same manner post COVID, and this figure is estimated to be around 58%. That is indeed a solid indicator of people feeling more inclined to work remotely!
Let us understand this by discussing two existing business models, which are mainly office-based, and the problems they cause:
Hiring multiple vendors has several hidden costs and risks associated with planning, processing, timeline management, project management, communication, and analytics of a marketing strategy. It may even lead to less effective results. Here are some common problems with this business model:
Missing functionality during planning
Hiring multiple vendors makes it difficult for a company to delegate responsibilities, and crucial functionalities may not be implemented. Catering to many clients results in multiple vendors billing you for duplicate costs, making you pay more for less.
The more people are involved, the more difficult it becomes to determine their availability and get things done, making processes more complex. Working with multiple vendors demands reviewing and approving work at every stage.
Difficulty analyzing results
With a vendor model, it becomes difficult to measure the results of a project. With convoluted client and customer figures, it is even more difficult to track a report in detail. The end will only be a failed effort.
Hiring is one of the most important processes for any organization, and a corporate leader knows very well nothing is more damaging than long hiring cycles. Apart from this, it also brings negative business and recruiting impacts. Here are some of the negative consequences seen with long hiring cycles:
Losing competent candidates
Top performers stay in the job market for just a few days. Hence, lengthening the hiring cycle may make them go after quicker, sought-after opportunities.
Losing revenue and productivity
Long hiring cycles can cause vacant positions to remain unfilled for long, stopping critical work due to unnecessary vacancies affecting the time required to develop new products.
A rise in hidden hiring costs
A long hiring cycle involves more management, recruiter, and employee interviewing times and whopping costs not added to the standard cost-per-hire.
The above two are examples of some practices regularly followed in industries that severely influence their revenue. Considering all the ins and outs of traditional working styles, AiDOOS has come up with an ultimate solution that promises to prevent losses and prolonged waiting hours. These points have been discussed further in this blog.
