Why U.S. companies should hire in Latam

As time passes by, technology and development have been increasing around the world. Due to the pandemic all countries were forced to look for new alternatives to promote remote work, to continue growing and developing the different economies.

Currently, it has been observed that remote work can become very effective and if it is carried out properly, it can even be more productive than face-to-face work. Additionally, the tools used for remote work have been improving considerably in the last two years, which has facilitated connectivity and the possibility of being able to work from different parts of the world.

On the other hand, it has been shown that hiring in places such as Africa, Asia and Latin America is a great opportunity for U.S. companies to acquire highly trained labor talent, with a lot of experience and at better costs than if hired locally.

In this article we will show some benefits of hiring remotely in Latam, so that U.S. companies can contemplate this possibility for expanding their work team.

Cultural barriers

Unlike Asian and African countries, the countries of Latin America are very influenced by the North American culture, for which the cultural differences are very few. This allows the interaction of work teams to be easier since cultural clashes tend to be much less noticeable.

Also, due to the influence of the U.S. in Latin America, candidates usually have a great performance speaking English. Well, in most Latin American countries English is taught from an early age since people are in school, which has allowed people in Latin America to surpass Asians or Africans in English language proficiency facilitating communication between the members of the company.


Thanks to the geographical proximity, the time difference between the U.S. and Latin American countries is minimal. Which does not happen with Asia or Africa. This can be seen as an advantage since it is easier to assign meetings and obtain a more effective reaction time from the team in case of urgent need for a task.


Although usually, due to the regulations of Latin American countries, a minimum wage for workers must be taken into account, it is less expensive to offer a good salary in dollars to remote workers that significantly exceed this minimum wage, so that they can pay their basic needs such as insurance, health, taxes, among others, and that they still have a surplus for savings, to hire someone locally because the average salary for highly skilled talent in the region tends to be lower than in the United States.

Hiring in Latin America can bring great positive effects that can be reflected in improvements for the company. The similarities in culture, schedules, language management and the implementation of global work tools also can help to have a good interaction and healthy working relationships.

Additionally, it should be noted that in Latam there are many candidates with a lot of potential, great skills and a lot of experience who can contribute to the growth of companies in the U.S. if they know how to potentiate everything they can offer.
