Company solutions help global businesses hire regionally

Velocity Global, the leading provider of global talent solutions, today announced its expanded operations in South Africa to meet the rising demand for enterprise growth in the region. With its leading-edge Global Work Platform™ and the ability to provide human resources solutions worldwide, companies can hire employees faster and reach diverse customers and emerging markets more effectively.

“South Africa is rich in talent and equipped to meet the needs of the growing remote workforce, which is why this expansion of our presence is a perfect fit,” said Laura Isaza, vice president of international PEO growth strategy at Velocity Global. “Our solutions in South Africa will enable companies to expand their hiring in the region as they continue to recruit the very best employees, regardless of where that talent chooses to work from.”

According to World Bank statistics, the tech sector in South Africa represents some of the strongest and most diversified digital talent in the region. With 92% of developers in the country already working remotely, the opportunities for companies around the world to leverage this well-developed talent infrastructure are endless. “When you pair this strong talent infrastructure with the HR compliance solutions that Velocity Global offers to clients, you will inevitably see favorable results for companies and talent alike,” adds Isaza.

At a time when 4 out of every 10 software developers in Africa already work for clients based in other parts of the world, Velocity Global’s continued expansion into the continent will allow businesses to onboard and manage employees simply and efficiently while ensuring full compliance with all local regulations.

Velocity Global enables businesses to hire compliantly — regardless of location, including in South Africa. Its global Employer of Record solution simplifies everything from onboarding and compliance to payroll and benefits, so companies can focus on the business at hand: driving success.
