Case Study: How Drift Hired Top Tech Talent in Mexico in 7 Days

What if your company needed to hire hard-to-fill tech roles quickly in a country where you don’t have a presence? There is the option to set up an entity in the country, but that could take months.

Drift, an AI-powered conversational marketing company, faced exactly this challenge when they decided to hire Mexico-based employees for their tech roles. The rapidly-growing company did not have time to navigate the complex legal framework required to establish a physical presence in Mexico, but wanted to onboard talent quickly. And thanks to Globalization Partners’ market-leading Global Employment Platform, Drift succeeded in hiring the right talent in record time.

More than 19 million U.S. workers have quit their jobs since 2021. Companies all over the world are experiencing this massive disruption and are learning to navigate the new demands of an employee-led market. Often, the easiest fix for companies is to increase salaries and offer financial perks — but will that be enough to retain your best employees?

What must companies do to hold on to their top workers? And how can companies turn attrition into attraction so that they can keep their best talent?

Thanks to digital advances, companies today have access to global talent pools of top-tier candidates. However, companies integrating international employees into their workforce can face organizational challenges. Each country has different labor laws and tax regulations when it comes to designing compliant global compensation packages. HR experts must comply with the local regulations and, at the same time, be conscious of the expectations of candidates according to the local job market.

Before companies can successfully design compliant, retention-driven compensation plans for their international teams, HR departments need to consider several potential strategies, and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Handcrafting a Global Expansion Plan

Global expansion is a hot topic for growing companies. Remote working and technology advancements have made international hiring easier than ever, and companies are using this opportunity to scale, find top-tier talent, and enter new markets. However, as new doors open, new challenges appear.

When planning this important leap, the natural tendency is to look for a standard expansion blueprint to follow, but there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for global growth. Every company is different, and organizational strategies must reflect the uniqueness of their structure. Instead, decision-makers must assess their growth needs and handcraft the best course of action.

In this PANGEO session, Dr. Susan Hanold, Vice President of ADP’s Strategic Advisory Services, will share her knowledge and experience about:

  • How to prepare for global expansion: Understand your company's value in new markets and define your growth objectives.
  • How to create a business case: Define your company’s organizational characteristics and determine how to create a well-rounded business case.
  • Compliance best practices: Prepare for the compliance challenges that arise during global expansion.

Hiring and Managing Employees After the Great Migration

Remote work allowed employees to recover something they’d lost: the opportunity to focus on their well-being. Recent trends like the “Great Resignation” and the “Great Migration” confirm that people now feel empowered to challenge traditional working practices. Candidates are in a better position to negotiate their employment terms or find new options if expectations aren’t met.

Today’s workforce wants to improve their work-life relationship — some moved closer to loved ones, while others traveled cross-country or simply embraced remote work to improve their lifestyle. Companies must find ways to create an appealing work environment to attract new talent and retain employees who may otherwise look for opportunities elsewhere.

Join Moderator Brent Kinsey, Chris Delorey, Executive Vice President at Marsh, Cheyenne Horvat, Manager of People Operations at Carta, and Surpana Basu-Ravis, Chief People Officer at Acceleration Partners to discuss how the “Great Migration” has transformed the workplace, strategies to attract employees in today’s business landscape, and advice on how to retain talent on the move.
