Remote, the global building, managing, and supporting, distributed workforces organisation, announced its launch in Australia. With employment through Remote in APAC increasing 8 X over the past year, this launch will help Remote to support more firms in Australia, Singapore, India, New Zealand, and beyond in accelerating their growth by hiring internationally. 

What is the market offering of Remote?

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 is ranked #1 in the multi-country payroll category by G2.

As more companies in Australia and across Asia-Pacific embrace remote work, they can rely on Remote’s easy-to-use-platform for legal, financial and cultural expertise to onboard team members living in other countries, and to provide best-in-class local benefits, offer stock options and pay wages in Australian dollars and other regional currencies. Remote has enabled firms in Australia and worldwide to hire and onboard remote employees 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 Australia and the region. Recently, Remote was ranked a Leader in the Summer 2022 Asia Pacific Regional Grid® Report for Payroll by G2. Remote can help Australian businesses recruit in the tech, engineering design and all other sectors.

What were the executives’ thoughts on Remote?

“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’s 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 Dept, Appen.

“Remote helps us not only in managing HR processes like onboarding, offboarding, leave and expense management, but also in planning talent cost in markets we want to enter.”    

Commenting on Remote’s solutions, Co-Founder and CEO of Standard Ledger, Remco Marcelis, said, “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.”

“The Australian jobs market has long been plagued by a shortage of talent, and this is particularly true in the technology sector. Our vision is a world where any business can hire anyone, anywhere, and we firmly believe this is an opportunity Australian companies need to meet the talent crunch head-on – transforming their workforce and building the best possible teams with world-class talent,” said Chris McNamara, Chief Revenue Officer of Remote.  

“We want to create a new way of thinking about work, where location no longer limits career potential, and a lack of local talent no longer impacts a firm’s ability to drive growth.”
