Remote Enhancements Enable Customers to Offer Global Mobility and Flexible Employment Packages

Global relocation support, payment options including cryptocurrency, and unlimited PTO policies help Remote customers stand out when competing for top international talent

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Remote, the leader in building, managing, and supporting global, distributed workforces, today announced platform and service enhancements enabling greater flexibility in where employees work, how they are paid, and more. With thousands of companies now using Remote to employ tens of thousands of employees and contractors around the world, these updates help Remote customers remain competitive when hiring top candidates in the global job market.

“In our latest Global Benefits Report, one in three workers ranked flexibility as one of their top considerations when evaluating job offers. For many, it’s now a make-or-break factor in where they work and whether they stay in their current role,” said Job van der Voort, CEO and Co-Founder of Remote. “We’re constantly working to help our customers attract top talent with world-class employment packages in every country. Those include flexibility, and our latest enhancements mean it’s easier for employees to get paid, live, and work the way they want.”

Global Mobility Services streamlines international relocations
As more companies increase remote work options, international mobility is becoming a differentiating factor in hiring and retaining employees. In Remote’s recent survey, 34% of employees said that relocation assistance is an innovative benefit that they would use if available.

Remote’s new Global Mobility Services give customers a streamlined way to enable employees to relocate to another country by relying on Remote’s experienced in-house team for immigration guidance, pre-employment eligibility checks, and other support. Companies can also use Remote to set up new local employee benefits, issue payroll in local currencies, and avoid potential tax and compliance issues related to international employment.

New, flexible payment options for employees and contractors
Workers employed through Remote now have more flexibility and control over their finances with the ability to split their salaries across multiple bank accounts. This enables employers to offer their employees a new way to budget their money and build savings with automatic deposits. Employees based in the United States can also choose to receive a percentage of their salary in their cryptocurrency of choice without added fees, thanks to an integration with Coinbase, allowing them to skip the step of conversion and maximize their crypto investments.

Remote has also expanded payment options for contractors, giving them the ability to receive payments in non-native currencies in 60+ countries around the world. This means that digital nomads and other global contractors can be paid directly from their employers in their currency of choice without conversion fees, independent of where they or Remote’s customer is based.

Easy contractor-to-employee conversion
Companies can face stiff penalties if a worker is misclassified according to the labor laws in their country of residence. Building on existing features that helps clients assess and manage misclassification risk, Remote now offers a simple playbook for companies to convert their international contractors to employees through Remote’s Employer of Record service.

Employers can tap into Remote’s expertise and experience not only to avoid legal exposure in often-complex situations, but also to evolve the way they work with international talent and offer competitive local benefits and perks that build loyalty. With Remote, companies can now onboard, pay, and transition independent contractors to full-time employees from a single platform.

Financial Regulatory Intelligence and Advisory Firm Regxelerator Launches Comprehensive Digital Asset Regulation Navigator

Featured Image for Regxelerator

Featured Image for Regxelerator

HAMILTON, Bermuda, Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, financial regulatory intelligence and advisory startup firm Regxelerator is launching its new digital assets regulation navigator. The free interactive intelligence platform provides a comprehensive and structured fact base of the state of play of digital asset regulation on a global scale and comes complete with several key features, including:

  • Dynamic dashboards offering insights on the global state of play regarding adoption of digital asset regulation
  • Over 115 individual country fact sheets providing a structured view of the approach to digital asset regulation, along with direct access to legislative and other key reference documents
  • Thematic benchmarking studies on specific aspects of digital asset regulation
  • A news database delivering updates on the latest developments

The platform’s launch comes at a time when digital asset regulation is highly dynamic in nature. Since 2017, more than 60 countries have enacted changes to begin bringing digital assets under the regulatory umbrella – with many actively reviewing their standards in response to lessons learned from the recent market crisis. To date, however, regulatory regimes have remained highly heterogeneous, as evidenced by various levels of scope and emphasis points.

Founder and CEO Jenny Radziwolek stresses that: “Digital asset regulation is at a critical juncture. Greater harmonization in standards across jurisdictions is critical in minimizing the risk of regulatory arbitrage. A thorough understanding of the current baseline is foundational for driving these efforts, as well as identifying current regulatory blind spots and gaps. Regxelerator’s platform seeks to provide a new resource that helps streamline access to fact-based information, which can then help inform the policy dialogue at both a national and global level.”

The platform can be accessed here.

About Regxelerator

Regxelerator is an early-stage startup focused on financial regulatory intelligence and advisory solutions for the financial regulatory community. Amid the fast-paced financial sector transformation and corresponding regulatory reform, it seeks to build and provide innovative new solutions that help navigate the increasingly complex and dense information landscape in a way that is both structured and efficient.
