This trend of remote working has brought several organisations pan-India to remote workforce hiring.

The traditional ways of vetting candidates will not work while recruiting a remote workforce. The new trend of remote working requires a different recruitment strategy and screening process. Here are some tips by experts from our healthcare placement agency or unit – Aarohan Placement & Training.
