Work culture can be changed

For remote staffing, you can easily choose talented candidates to join and work in your team, on the other hand, you can’t have criteria to select the one you want. Especially for the people who are working for your company, you know more about them and their abilities. 


In addition, the remote staff is a part of your team which means they will clearly understand your company values and it can lead to enhanced brand image and stronger brand identity. With outsourcing, you hire them to get your project done as soon as possible so the company’s culture is not a factor that is accounted for.
