It seems that employers offering/allowing remote work at least some of the time, are better able to hire quickly than employers who require full-time presence in the office for work. The subheadline nicely sums up the article’s thesis.
Employers offering flexible work options are hiring at a faster pace than those requiring full-time office attendance
And the lede:
With employers fighting for a limited pool of office workers, those offering remote-friendly jobs appear to have the upper hand.
Upper hand compared to what? That brings me to my question, which is this: what’s the quality of work done by the part-time remote employee compared with that of the full-time in-the-office employee?
OK, a second question: what’s the quality of employee who works remotely at least some of the time compared with the employee who works in the office full time?
A bonus question: what’s the quality of the quickly hired employee, or the quality of the work done by him—the partial remote employee, for instance, but not exclusively so for this question—compared with the employee who’s hired after some time spent by the employer in the search?
