DENVER, May 25, 2023 — Velocity Global, the world’s expert on work, today announced new platform updates to improve the customer experience, accelerate the hiring process, and help companies more strategically meet escalating hiring demands and complexities. In addition to a more seamless, intuitive user experience and improved onboarding management, customers will also have access to a new technology integration with leading HR platform Lever. The integration allows HR managers and leaders to hire globally faster while also giving them full visibility into the employee lifecycle without having to interface with multiple systems.
These updates are rooted in years of expertise and unmatched collective experience in international hiring, global expansion, and distributed workforce management and represent ongoing investments to the company’s technology platform. They are also indicative of Velocity Global’s mission to make it easier for companies of all sizes and at any stage of growth to compliantly hire, pay, and manage talent across more than 185 countries with the click of a button.
Intuitive Design and Improved Onboarding Management
Velocity Global’s platform combines its industry-leading accuracy and attention to detail with speed and automation. With new enhancements that include a more intuitive design and navigation, customers will enjoy further reduced time to hire and onboard talent through a more seamless experience and increased visibility into their global workforce.
Furthermore, updates to the onboarding management process streamline the quoting and employment agreement experience for hiring managers in two ways. First, customers will now have self-service options that exponentially decrease the time to extend employment contracts. Second, new contract management features save HR managers time and logistical back and forth. Customers can now leverage in-app onboarding forms, automated contract review and approvals, and secure contract signatures for a more frictionless contract management experience.

Better analytics through a myriad of analytical staffing reports, from diversity recruitment to time to hire
Increased efficiency through less copying and pasting of data from the applicant tracking system (Lever) into the Global Work Platform™
Reduced errors related to manual data entry
“Having a strong track record in compliance and in-depth local expertise is non-negotiable for EOR providers. However, buyers in the fast-evolving EOR space are increasingly looking for an integrated global technology platform that provides a one-stop-shop for talent and employers,” said Jeanine Crane-Thompson, Principal HR Analyst at NelsonHall. “Enhancing the user experience through integrations with key HR technologies that cover the full employee lifecycle will be a critical differentiator for EOR providers. This provides forward-thinking HR departments with a solution to easily and quickly support broader strategic initiatives, geographic expansion, and business growth plans.”
“At Velocity Global, we are driven by proactive problem-solving for our customers and providing a first class solution that handles the complexity of global employment while simultaneously being easy to use,” said Liz Li, Chief Product Officer at Velocity Global. “As the demand for hiring across borders increases, we are committed to innovating on behalf of our customers to meet this urgency and demand. This is just the beginning of what is to come. We’re excited to roll out more product enhancements and updates in the coming year, turning a global workforce into a competitive advantage for our customers.”
These new product enhancements and the Lever technology integration is available today to all Velocity Global customers. For more information, visit VelocityGlobal.com.
