There is no doubt that COVID-19 accelerated the remote work revolution by removing the last barriers to remote work adoption.
This significant shift can not only improve employees’ quality of life, but also help companies access a larger pool of talent, while curbing operational costs.
International payroll and compliance company Deel is a champion of remote work, accelerating remote and global workforce capabilities by removing geographical limitations and allowing companies access to an international talent pool.
Today Deel announced its official Canadian launch. Using Deel, Canadian companies can now quickly and compliantly hire teams in over 150 countries. Canadian employees can also easily be paid in Canadian dollars by over one thousand global companies that use the platform.
No longer limited by a comparably small talent pool, Canadian businesses can tap into the worldwide talent pool with confidence that local legal compliance and proper payroll currency considerations have been made.
Deel’s platform helps businesses hire anyone anywhere, either as an independent contractor or full-time employee. Deel currently supports over one-thousand companies in more than 150 countries, automating everything in one easy-to-use dashboard, all while ensuring proper compliance with local laws.
“I’m proud that through Deel, Canadian companies will be better equipped to hire internationally and that Canadian workers can ignore the confines of national borders while advancing their careers,” said Alex Bouaziz, Co-Founder and CEO of Deel.
“After 2 years in operation, with 1,500 global companies on our platform, our early adopter clients (fintechs, eSports companies and cloud-based SaaS firms) have been able to reap the benefits of a global talent pool. This is just the beginning, as everyday we continue to welcome other industries to Deel.”
Previously companies had to input U.S. dollars and convert them to Canadian dollars to pay Canadian employees on Deel. This move removes the complex logistics and time consuming process of onboarding and paying workers across borders by automating payroll.
