Extension’s Remote platform offers more flexibility in hiring for employees worldwide

Support for international transfers, payment options such as cryptocurrencies and an unlimited paid time off policy allow Remote customers to differentiate themselves from the competition for top international talent

Remote, the specialist in setting up, managing and supporting global, distributed workforces, has enhanced its platform and added services that provide greater flexibility in where employees work, how they are paid and other benefits. Today, thousands of companies use Remote to deliver jobs to tens of thousands of employees and contractors worldwide. The new updates help these customers stay competitive in recruiting the best candidates in the international job market.

“In our latest Global Benefits Report, one in three employees cited flexibility as one of the most important considerations when evaluating a new job. For many people, it is now a deciding factor in whether they want to stay in their current role,” said Job van der Voort, CEO and co-founder of Remote “We are constantly improving our services to help our clients attract top talent with world-class benefits in every country. Flexibility is part of that, and our latest improvements mean it’s easier for employees to be paid, live and work the way they want.”

Streamline international transfers with global mobility services

As more companies offer telecommuting options, international mobility is becoming a differentiator in employee recruitment and retention. In a recent survey conducted by Remote, 34 percent of employees said that transfer assistance is an innovative benefit that they would take advantage of if given the opportunity.

Remote’s Global Mobility Services provide clients with a streamlined way to facilitate an employee transfer to another country. They can rely on Remote’s experienced in-house team for immigration guidance, pre-employment eligibility testing and other support. Companies can also use Remote to create benefits for new local employees, pay wages in local currency and avoid potential tax and compliance issues associated with international employment.

New flexible payment options for employees and contractors

Employees employed through Remote now have greater flexibility and control over their finances with the ability to split their salary across multiple bank accounts. For example, employers can offer their employees a new way to budget their expenses and build savings with automatic deposits. Employees in the US can also choose to receive a percentage of their salary in a cryptocurrency of their choice at no extra cost thanks to an integration with Coinbase. This skips the exchange step and allows them to make the most of their crypto investment.

Remote has also expanded payment options for contractors by allowing them to receive payments in non-standard currencies in more than 60 countries worldwide. This means that digital nomads and other international contractors can be paid directly by their employers in a currency of their choice without exchange fees, regardless of where they or Remote’s clients are located.

Easy transition from contractor to employee

Companies can risk large fines if an employee is misclassified under the labor law of the country where he/she lives. Building on existing capabilities to help clients assess and manage the risk of misclassification, Remote now offers a simple handbook that allows companies to turn their international contractors into employees through Remote’s Employer of Record service.

Employers can leverage Remote’s expertise and experience to not only avoid litigation in often complex situations, but also to further develop the way they work with international talent and provide competitive local advantages and benefits that help them build loyalty . With Remote, companies can now onboard, pay and convert independent contractors to full-time employees via a single platform.
