Find Talented Remote Professionals with a Staffing Agency


Remote work can come with unique benefits. It can give more flexibility, increased productivity, less commuting, better work-life balance, and the list goes on. Over the past couple years of doing work from home (WFH) being the norm, many of us have adapted and come to enjoy remote work.

But this isn’t the case with everyone. Even with all those advantages.

Though there are similarities in scouting remote talent, it isn’t the same as traditional recruiting. Yes, any employee can perform the necessary tasks, but have they demonstrated the skills essential for remote work. In addition to technical abilities, soft skills are equally important, but in some ways, they are even more important to consider when it comes to remote work.


Skills necessary for remote workers


  1. Self-motivated
  2. Strong time management
  3. Emotional intelligence
  4. Adaptability
  5. Accountable
  6. Ability to work independently
  7. Excellent written communication skills
  8. Disciplined
  9. Punctuality
  10. Digital literacy


The above list is not exhaustive, nor is it exclusive to remote employees. However, employers really need to emphasize these skills when recruiting for at-home positions. A candidate can have a stellar resume, but if they aren’t self-sufficient and disciplined, they will be no good working remote. WFH employees don’t have their senior leaders constantly around to keep them in check.


There is a lot to consider when hiring remote employees, and it can become overwhelming and easy to miss things, especially if you don’t have the experience. Recruitment agencies can take the stress off and match you with remote talent that best fits your needs.


3 ways a recruitment agency can help you find your next remote hire



A good recruitment agency would never refer candidates they are unsure of. Once you get the chance to conduct your own interviews, you can be assured the candidates have already undergone pre-screenings, including skill matrixes and technical assessments. These evaluations will test both technical abilities and the required soft skills for working remotely. After a series of screenings, the recruiters will create a shortlist and handpick candidates from our niche. When presented with this shortlist, clients can know they are receiving the best of the best.


Broaden your candidate pool 

Remote work comes with the idea of being geographically limitless. And while it is, you still have to know where to go looking for talent. It’s all fine and well to post a job description with “remote workers wanted” on it, but how far does it reach? Staffing agencies have a much further reach. At Live Assets, we have a network spanning North America. So, while our recruiters may be in Toronto, they are making connections across the continent.

Clients who work with us gain access to these connections, instantly increasing their candidate pool than recruiting alone. No longer are you limited to prospective employees in your province or country.


Invest time and knowledge 

Making the right hire is an investment for both the client and the candidate. Recruitment agencies want to see their clients and candidates thrive. At Live Assets, we prioritize meeting with clients and getting to the bottom of what they need. From here, we use our knowledge and expertise to determine which candidates will best meet their needs.

Hiring remote employees comes with great trust. Many companies are hiring remote roles for the first time, and we want to ensure they see a return. We can provide our clients with exceptional remote talent by investing our time and money. As a result, both the company and the employees will thrive.
