This is an excellent way to showcase your skills, experience working for clients straight away and the best method to suitably match you with clients.

THE SCREENING PROCESS

Remote Staff screen all prospective clients, refusing those who don't qualify as long-term employers. They have invested heavily in identifying and approaching quality international clients, who know what they want, are considered proven employers and are people who manage professional businesses. Just as Remote have a stringent screening process to qualify and disqualify clients, they also have thorough screening processes to determine the most appropriate contractors to represent, work with and those they cannot. Some of the personal qualities Remote Staff believe are important in forging a successful home based career are as follows:

  • Majority of international clients are based in English speaking countries so your ability to speak, read and write in English is essential.

  • You will need to have a serious and genuine pro-active commitment to home based work. Remote Staff is only interested in sub contracting you to work in full time or part time capacities and only if you are of the view and understanding of forging a long-term career with our clients.

  • It is important to have a professional home working environment that is a quiet working space without the distraction of others who maybe living with you such as family members or friends.

  • Clear communication and honesty about your level of understanding of work tasks will assist your client to spend less time micro managing you to complete your work.

  • Your ability to be tech savvy and utilize online collaboration tools such as Skype, Microsoft Word, Excel, and others is essential to your day-to-day work tasks.

Some of the proven systems and rules Remote Staff has in place to forge a successful home based career are as follows:

  • You must have access to a landline Internet connection with a minimum connection speed of 1.0mbps download and 0.35mbps upload. Higher Internet connections are preferred. If your Internet connection speed is below the required speeds and is disabling you from performing your work tasks at a professional level, then it is expected that you invest in purchasing the Internet package that will give you every opportunity to perform the standard of work required from home.

  • A representative of Remote Staff will personally visit your home to verify your ID, address as well as confirm you have professional working environment and that your computer equipment and Internet connection speeds are all of a professional working standard.

  • Consistent availability is essential. For this reason, Remote Staff implement a 3minute Skype rule, where you are expected to respond to the client as a means to fostering trust as well as maintaining your work task momentum.

  • You will be required to work the office hours of 9am to 6pm of your international client's time zone if you are working full-time. Part time is often 9am to 1pm or 2pm to 6pm.

In most cases when you have a home-based Internet job, you are excited at the prospect of working autonomously from home. This doesn't mean that you will be getting paid to stay home, eat, watch TV, play online games and socialise with friends. The reality cannot be further from the truth and, it should not come as a surprise that Remote Staff has procedures in place to ensure that you are in fact honouring your agreement to be online, on time, performing work related tasks so that you are accountable working from home. Measures such as such as their 3minute screenshots; a 20-30minute activity tracker; 5minute web cam shots for those working night shift, and online timesheets which will validate the hours you have worked. These systems are in place because online employers will place the same if not more expectations and responsibilities on you as they would if you were working for them in an office based environment.

Remote Staff value transparency and honesty. With a dedicated HR department, they focus towards providing you with all the support you need to overcome any cultural and communication issues and resolve any work style differences you may experience whilst working with the international client. Remote Staff also work towards building added job security by having continuous life time re-hiring commitments, which they offer to you and other quality staff.

All in all, Remote Staff work very hard at cultivating relationships based on mutual confidence and trust between you as the possible home based contractor and the international employers to achieve sustainable long lasting careers. As a result, Remote Staff have witnessed first hand clients wanting to travel from overseas to meet you face-to-face. In some cases you may be flown abroad to further your training. All these examples are more proof to the value of the Remote Staff philosophies and services.

In closing, if you are serious about finding a company who will treat you the possible contractor equally as important as their clients, a company who will provide reliable sound procedures and technologies, but more importantly ongoing HR support to assist you to successfully build sustainable working relationships with international clients, then Remote Staff is one outsourcing company you should strongly consider for a professional home-based career.
