Globalization Partners on How Technology Platforms Can Boost Security, Ease Onboarding for a Remote Workforce
The restrictions and stay-at-home mandates caused by the pandemic forced many businesses to rethink their workflows last year, and many CEOs quickly adopted a remote work model to avoid substantial loss of revenue.
The shift to remote work is here to stay, according to Gerard Keating, chief technology officer at Boston-based remote employment services platform Globalization Partners. Although some pandemic-related restrictions have relaxed, many staff members continue to work from home indefinitely. Keating explained to PYMNTS in an interview how the company’s platform allows its corporate clients to set up onboarding, benefits and contracts easily for their remote workers.
“It’s really critical for [business] customers of [Globalization Partners] and [businesses] in general that are going remote to ensure that they have locally compliant contracts and offer really competitive benefits in different countries,” he said. “Team members come in and, through an automated self-service workflow, can sign up for the benefits [and] sign their contracts right within the platform.”
Employers who choose to remain remote or incorporate a hybrid schedule for their employees need to equip them with the tools to succeed. These include developing an online platform on which onboarding and human resources tasks can be completed with minimal friction from start to finish.
