Whether you work for a mom-and-pop organization, one of the largest corporations in the world, a non-governmental organization (NYSEMKT:NGO) or major nonprofit organization, a governmental entity, or an educational institution, advances in virtualization technologies and social and collaborative tools and services are forcing all organizations to consider how to become more efficient and productive in a virtual environment.
However, as many human resource executives and hiring managers have already discovered, working in a virtual environment is fraught with a number of dangers and significant challenges and, therefore, is not suitable for everyone. The million-dollar question then becomes, "Besides using my gut feelings, flipping a coin, or giving someone a chance and seeing how things work out, how can I tell whether or not a person is suitable to work in a virtual environment and where can I get that answer?"
The answer lies in Virtual Organization Recruiter, the only such service provider in the world and a company which I chair. Virtual Organization Recruiter provides, among many other virtual organization assessment solutions, a formal, standardized Virtual Organization Aptitude Assessment solution for all employers worldwide. Henceforth, employers no longer have to take a shot in the dark, cross their fingers and hope for the best; play Russian roulette or guessing games; or utilize unreliable homegrown solutions from well-meaning employees that are tantamount to "having the blind leading the blind" or "in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king." For the most part, these homegrown solutions typically end up being an exercise in futility and throwing money down the drain.
