As we continue to work from anywhere, will this cause more work to be outsourced?
Especially, as the communication tools that we have available, work about the same, regardless of location.
So if we were to have more parity on: working business hours, communication mediums, technical skills and personal soft skills, what’s left?
If having a presence in the local office no longer applies for many positions, will companies continue to look for the lowest cost option elsewhere?
And if so, will that potentially drive the salaries down in the U.S. to remain competitive?
Some may say it has been this way for a long time now, and some services make sense to be done elsewhere, but others will always need to be local.
But is the remote work situation continuing to make the world flatter than it already is?
