Remote launches in Asia-Pacific Region

World’s fastest-growing Employer of Record company offers global HR, payroll, benefits, contractor management, and compliance to help businesses hire beyond their borders

San Francisco, Sep 6, 2022 – Remote, the leader in building, managing, and supporting global, distributed workforces, today announced its official launch in the Asia-Pacific region. With employment through Remote in APAC countries increasing 8 X over the past year, this launch will help Remote to support more companies based in Australia, Singapore, India, New Zealand, and beyond in accelerating their growth by hiring internationally.

Remote makes it possible for businesses to hire employees or contractors anywhere in the world. Remote supports the most active customer employees on its platform among major Employer of Record providers and has been ranked #1 in the multi-country payroll  category by G2. As more companies in the Asia-Pacific region embrace remote work, they can rely on Remote’s easy-to-use-platform and legal, financial, and cultural expertise to onboard team members living in other countries, provide best-in-class local benefits, offer stock options, and pay wages in local currency.

Remote has enabled companies around the world to hire and onboard remote employees in APAC countries since 2020. The launch accompanies recent investments from Remote in sales, marketing, partnerships and delivery efforts to meet increasing demand from companies looking to expand both within and outside the Asia-Pacific region.

“Our vision is a world where any business can hire anyone, anywhere, so that companies can build the best teams in the world and people can find a great career independent of their locations. I’m excited to expand our Asia-Pacific presence to bring this vision closer to reality,” said Job van der Voort, Co-Founder and CEO of Remote. “With this launch, we are in a better position than ever to build partnerships with the leading HR and finance providers in the region to help more companies transform their tech workforce through remote work and break down barriers to hiring international talent.”

“Remote has been invaluable in removing barriers such as international borders and location and has helped us in engaging qualified talent from across the globe. It enabled us onboard the right people for our business, finally giving us the resources we need to continue delivering and growing,” said Indrani Chall, Senior Manager of Human Resources Department, Appen. “Their online platform helps us not only in managing HR processes like onboarding, offboarding, leave and expense management efficiently, but also in planning the cost of talent in markets we are exploring to grow.”

“The “Distributed Workforce Economy” is an area we’ve been tracking closely at B Capital as a part of our broader Future of Work thesis,” said Rashmi Gopinath, General Partner at B Capital. “Thousands of companies view Remote as mission critical to effectively hire, manage, and remunerate globally distributed teams in today’s competitive talent market. As global investors in enterprise software with deep expertise in the Asia-Pacific region, we look forward to partnering with Remote as they officially launch in APAC and help make global employment opportunities accessible to millions of workers worldwide.”

“As Australia's leading accounting and part-time CFO firm for startups, we're often working with our clients on their team and financial growth plans.  When placing our first salespeople into new markets or looking for 'good [tech] talent anywhere', Remote’s all-in-one solution makes it easy to manage our team, as employees, wherever they are based”, said Remco Marcelis, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Standard Ledger.
