First-of-its-Kind PEO Collaboration Technology Saves Time, Streamlines Processes,
and Meets Data Protection Needs
Boston—Nov. 13, 2017—Globalization Partners, a Global PEO and employer of record firm that helps companies expand internationally without setting up overseas branch offices, today announced the availability of GoGlobal™, a platform that provides a simple and efficient way to onboard, pay, and manage international employees. The GoGlobal platform is the first PEO collaboration technology of its kind, built from the ground-up to meet the complex needs of American companies hiring and retaining talent in more than 170 countries worldwide.
With GoGlobal, companies can track employment information for every professional in every country, all from a single dashboard. The easy-to-use interface gives HR teams the ability to review professional information, documents, and payroll transactions in a single, secure platform. GoGlobal, which is accessible from any smartphone, tablet, or laptop, is an extension of the customer service team that Globalization Partners customers have always valued.
GoGlobal’s unique feature set includes:
- Role-based security – ensuring appropriate control over information access for different team members
- Multi-level visibility – giving users the option to view global teams from one dashboard or drill down into country-specific information
- Automated workflows – streamlining the steps to submit and approve payroll
- Shared repository – allowing shared and secure access to payroll information and HR-related documentation
“As companies increasingly look to take advantage of global market opportunities, HR teams must deal with a host of new challenges when it comes to both onboarding employees abroad and then managing payroll, benefits, and other needs,” says Globalization Partners Chief Operations Officer Debbie Millin. “Historically, much of this information has been kept in spreadsheets or emails, making it difficult to access, update, and use. Because this has been a headache companies have long sought to resolve, we saw a need to put better technology in place.”
The release of GoGlobal, which is a fully secure and compliant system, is of particular importance due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)—an EU data protection framework that will go into effect in May 2018—requiring much stricter control over employee data and carrying a hefty fine of up to 2 percent of global revenues or 10 million euros (whichever is higher) for non-compliance.
“Globalization Partners knows the Global PEO business better than anyone else, and this platform represents the technological manifestation of that unmatched expertise,” says Globalization Partners CEO Nicole Sahin. “Client reactions from our early testing are overwhelmingly positive, which we believe is a sign this was a much-needed solution to ease the challenges inherent with overseeing a growing international workforce. GoGlobal will save our clients hours of time and immeasurable frustration when it comes to processing payroll and managing employees around the world.”
