U.S.-based companies often think in terms of extending the same benefits packages they offer in the U.S. to overseas workers, but HR teams who take this route will discover quickly that it doesn’t work.

As the U.S. economy continues its rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic, recruiters are seeing a surge in new job listings across various industries. Companies are beginning to hire again, and as they do, new trends are beginning to emerge that show changing priorities in the workplace. Some of these mean new challenges for HR departments.

Businesses are putting continued emphasis on diversity, equity and inclusion as they grow their teams. They are taking various measures to address skills gaps among U.S. workers, and are increasingly relying on gig-economy workers to fill various niches. Many companies are also making work-from-home a permanent option.
