The hub-spoke hiring model works well for high-growth companies that adopt a hybrid work environment.

Add to that, the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated remote work for knowledge workers over the past year-plus, and has created new challenges for companies that are now grappling with the return to work and how to support remote v. on-site workforces. One key takeaway we have learned during the pandemic is that the hub-spoke hiring model works well for high-growth companies that adopt a hybrid work environment. In this context, the hub and spoke model means that instead of looking for one specific metro area for talent, HR managers look for a cluster of cities in close proximity that collectively work as a network of one hub and multiple spokes.
