Ep. 130 | The Pros and Cons of Hiring Remote Workers for Your B2B

This week, we chat with Nathan Hirsch, CEO of Freeeup, about the pros and cons of hiring remote workers for your B2B business.

The workplace landscape is shifting and already more than half of B2B companies have remote or offsite employees. And that percentage will increase to more than 75 percent within the next 10 years.

So, what do you need to know when hiring a remote worker? How do you get the best work from them? How do you integrate your local and remote teams?

Enjoy the conversation, and we hope you can get one or two takeaways that you can bring to your business.
