You have probably heard the term “borderless workforce” or “open talent economy” thrown around in business publications recently. If you’re not sure what exactly a borderless workforce is and why it matters today, let us explain: Simply put, it means that more and more companies around the globe have begun to allow their employees to have more flexible hours and work remotely — doing business without borders, essentially. In fact, some companies have already gone so far as to build completely remote workforces on their own. As an example, the software development platform GitLab has 850 employees spread across more than 55 countries, each of them working remotely from home. Most interestingly, the remote workforce business model seems to actually be working without a hitch: The company is already valued at $2.75 billion after raising $268 million in funding in September 2019. Meanwhile, thanks to economic globalization and recruitment technology connecting people around the world for jobs — no matter their location — a borderless workforce has been quietly building up before our eyes.

This new borderless business model is especially relevant for younger generations like millennials and Gen-Zers, who are refusing to go with the norms of the “9—5” office job and instead are searching for meaningful and flexible work, no matter where it may be. From dreams of working while traveling the world or simply loving the flexibility to go where they want, when they want, the borderless workforce is quickly becoming ideal for young employees. And for HR teams and recruiters, this new dynamic is actually creating new opportunities to gain some of the world’s top fresh talent.
