In this episode, I'm talking with Tony Jamous. This episode's all about the future of work and how remote, async work can help tackle global inequality.

Tony's the CEO and co-founder of a company called Oyster, which is a global employment platform that aims to remove the barriers of remote work and distributed hiring. Tony grew up in Lebanon, went through the civil war and developed this incredible worldly view where he believed that we should eliminate the bias of hiring across different countries. He did this in his last company, which he took public. And then he set out to build Oyster as a way to empower all of us to hire across country boundaries.

So if you're growing a business and you've thought about tapping into this global workforce and finding people across the world to work for your business, but it just seems too daunting, the infrastructure, the taxes, the payroll, the setting up entities, the HR and compliance issues, that's why their company exists. So we get deep into remote work, which they've been for the last few years. We talk about growth while maintaining your employee wellness. They've grown from 50 to 600 people in the last couple of years. And we get into how COVID affected all of us in this remote world future that we live in. So this episode will dive deep in remote work.

Topics covered:

  • Global inequality for job opportunities. (3:23)
  • The future of a globally connected workforce. (6:59)
  • Beating burnout. (12:21)
  • Stigma around hiring from developing countries. (17:22)
  • Determining salary for global employees. (22:20)
  • Why founders have a hard time adopting remote work. (30:59)
