Ask the Recruiter What is the potential downside of working remote?”


In January, we held our annual meeting to review the prior year. Every year there is interesting data we like to share. Below are some of our highlights from 2023:


  • Our top two sources for finding people remain the ESS network and LinkedIn
  • Our top hired skillsets are:
  1. Clinical
  2. Case Management
  3. Operations
  4. Data Analytics
  5. Sales
  6. Accounting
  7. Network Development
  • We worked with 46 new companies in the last two years, will we add your company in 2024?
  • From the date we accepted a new assignment to the date the finalist was hired was 70 days on average, the lowest in ESS history.

2024 is off to a quick start. If there is an opportunity for us to work together, I would welcome the opportunity. Please keep me in mind to either help with your career or to help you build your team.

Ask the Recruiter – “WHat is the potential downside of working remote?”

Over the last couple of years, the majority of people have preferred to work from home. Data is starting to come out on the implications of working remotely. According to Live Data Technologies, fully remote workers are being promoted 31% less frequently than their in-person peers. According to KPMG, about 90% of the CEO’s surveyed said they are more likely to give raises, promotions, or better assignments to those employees working in the office.

Survey after survey has found remote workers are happier than in-person employees. Remote workers are more likely to stay with their company while fully in office employees are more likely looking to change jobs.

There are pros and cons of each option. If there is anything I can do to help you make these decisions or to help you progress in your career, please reach out.
