While many companies are struggling with dual challenges of managing remote work while stemming high turnover, Chelsea Wood, Director of Recruiting at PAM Transport, has the answer and the data to prove it.
Chelsea leads 18 domestic recruiters. Eight of these recruiters live in different states and work remotely. Chelsea has used this hybrid approach successfully for the past 7 years, so the pandemic was not a driver for this hybrid solution. Gary, her Vice President of Recruiting believed he could expand the hiring pool using remote recruiters and trusted it wouldn’t affect performance. Although numerous studies have debunked the myth that remote or hybrid work schedules reduce productivity, she has tracked her own performance results over the past 7 years. Her data reflects comparable, if not improved, productivity when comparing remote and office recruiters. Her top recruiter works remotely. And she has only lost 1 team member to voluntary turnover in the last year (during the “Great Resignation” no less).

When a valued, talented, and hard-working employee resigns, it can often leave behind a bit of a void within your organization. Unsurprisingly, studies show that the departure of a promising and well-respected team member can negatively impact their colleagues by lowering the team’s overall morale and productivity. Unfortunately, a resignation of this nature not only impacts the individual’s team but can also affect the entire company.
