Over the past two years, organizations have adapted to various workplace types and hiring processes. And most recruitment solutions became compatible with virtual interviews, online assessments, etc.

Skillate has added a new field called “Workplace Type” to all the job creation forms to incorporate the work model into your job opening.

Before you jump into the feature and its use cases, let’s take a look at various workplace type and their industry meanings:
  • Onsite jobs: Those jobs where the employees need to be at the office to fulfill the assigned duties can be termed as onsite jobs.
  • Remote jobs: Those jobs where the employees can work from any location other than the office operated by the employer can be termed as remote jobs.
  • Hybrid jobs: Those jobs where the employees are given the flexibility to work from office and remotely can be termed hybrid.
  • Temporarily remote jobs: Those jobs where employers can work from any location but will be expected to work from the office operated by the employer on a later date can be termed as temporarily remote.
