As companies look to further establish their position relative to a remote workforce, the geography will continue to flatten with respect to internal growth and external recruiting. Roles that were scoped to be in “City X” can now be based in “anywhere USA”. This allows for the greatest opportunity to align “best in class” leaders to those roles without the geographic constraints seen previously. As organizations look to grow the next level of leadership, as well as recruit and retain market differentiating candidates at all levels, businesses will be looking for technology leaders to be “business leaders” capable of understanding the business impact and provide thought and context across specific functions. The new model will shine a spotlight on next-generation leaders in infrastructure, operations, data, and security functions as organizations look to support and protect the enterprise in a remote workforce model.
