Local team to help Australian organizations hire quickly, grow globally and adapt to the new ‘Work in Any Way’ world

SYDNEY, AustraliaSafeguard Global, a workforce management technology company, is expanding its operations with a new team in the Australian market to support fast-growing companies in scaling their international workforce. Increasingly, Australian organizations face the need for more flexible ways of hiring and working and must adjust their strategies to combat the ongoing skills shortage and meet ‘Work in Any Way’ demands. Safeguard Global’s expanded local presence will help them hire anywhere and compete for the best talent globally.

“The future of work is about creating Work in Any Way experiences, which diversify not just where but how and when people work,” said Bjorn Reynolds, founder, CEO and Chief Guardian. “Safeguard Global’s solutions enable flexibility in how companies expand their businesses and the types of work experiences they provide. That's a competitive advantage.”

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and lengthy border closures, the Australian Industry Group (AIG) found that 73% of Australian CEOs expect to have difficulty finding and retaining skilled labor in 2022. As more companies recognize the need to adapt to keep up in the rapidly changing competitive employment landscape, global employer of record (EOR) services provide the opportunity to hire anywhere in the world quickly and compliantly, fueling business growth.

“In today’s dynamic and challenging business landscape, the companies that will succeed are those that adopt a global talent strategy to support both local and international growth,” said Jonathan Perumal, Safeguard Global Country Manager, ANZ. “Safeguard Global is expanding its presence in Australia at a critical time, when border restrictions have lifted yet many industries are facing crippling talent shortages and skilled migration is anticipated to remain at low levels. We’re excited to be able to help local organizations act quickly to recruit their choice of top-tier global talent.”

Safeguard Global is the only workforce management company to offer local market expertise on a global scale, with services in more than 170 countries. The Australian expansion is the latest step in the company's aggressive global growth strategy and will enable Safeguard Global to help more companies in the APAC region quickly and compliantly scale their workforces internationally.

“Part of our long-term vision is to bring our market expertise to every region, and we have spent the last few years building our expertise in APAC,” Reynolds said. “With over 150 Australian workers already employed by international companies through Safeguard Global, we’re thrilled to be setting up operations in Australia to support local organizations’ ability to recruit and hire the best talent in the world.”

Global Employment Outsourcing (GEO), the Safeguard Global employer of record solution, provides the infrastructure to help companies compliantly hire employees anywhere in the world, while doing so efficiently and cost effectively. With access to a large pool of local labor market insights and in-country HR and employment experts, clients can confidently make overseas hiring decisions at speed knowing that Safeguard Global will manage the risk and execution.
