Remote launches global HR platform to empower vietnamese businesses for global growth

Remote, the leader in building, managing, and supporting global distributed workforces, today announced the official launch of its Global HR Platform in Vietnam. As more Vietnamese businesses embrace the benefits of remote work, Remote’s Global HR Platform provides a unified and globally compliant HR system that supports the full end-to-end employment lifecycle for teams based anywhere in the world.

According to data from the General Statistics Office of Vietnam, the labor market in Vietnam will face many new opportunities in early 2024, with 918.5 thousand underemployed people of working age looking for new job opportunities. The report on the situation of Vietnam’s labor market in 2023, in particular, stated that employer demand will continue to rise beginning in late 2023. Businesses will require solutions that both monitor the recruitment process and manage human resources globally during the candidate search stage.

Remote’s global HR platform helps companies find, hire, manage, and pay their global teams, providing a seamless and compliant solution for remote work across borders. With its official platform launch in Vietnam, Remote aims to empower businesses in the region to access top-tier talent and foster a truly global workforce. 

Job van der Voort, CEO and Co-founder of Remote, expressed his enthusiasm for the company’s expansion into Vietnam, stating, “Vietnam’s economy accelerates leading to an increasing demand for talent acquisition and also job-seeking opportunities. We’re proud to have helped international companies hire thousands of Vietnamese professionals since 2021, through Remote as an Employer of Record. And now, we’re excited to launch our global HR platform locally to make it easier for Vietnamese companies to hire and manage talent from anywhere in the world.”

Remote’s Global HR Platform provides a single place for companies to find, hire, manage, and pay a global workforce. It includes:

Remote HRIS (Human Resources Information System): Remote HRIS provides a free resource to manage the employee lifecycle from onboarding to offboarding, including time and attendance tracking, talent management, expense management, and integrated payroll, making it easy for Vietnam companies to manage and automate core HR processes.

Employer of Record (EOR): Remote provides a compliant and efficient way for companies to hire people based outside of Vietnam, as well as to reduce risks and costs while adhering to the prevailing international employment regulations.

The platform offers a user-friendly interface, automated processes, and expert support to ensure a smooth experience for both employers and employees. It is backed by Remote’s extensive global infrastructure of entities and payment networks, in-house experts, and a deep understanding of local laws and norms embedded in the platform. For international companies seeking to retain talent based in Vietnam, Remote helps to ensure that local labor laws are followed, including the protections under the 2021 Labor Code of the Republic of Vietnam. Foreign companies can use Remote to pay teams in Vietnamese Dong as well as foreign currency for foreign employees.

“We believe that talent is everywhere, but opportunities are not. With our expansion into Vietnam, we aim to bridge this gap and empower both businesses and individuals to thrive in the global economy,” added Job van der Voort.

Remote launched in 2019 and became the fastest-growing employer of record (EOR) company, building the most comprehensive global infrastructure in the industry to make it easier for companies like GitLab, HelloFresh, Aston Martin, DoorDash, and Burger King to hire outside their home countries. Remote has enabled Vietnamese businesses to hire talent in 20 countries to date, enabling them to find great talent while they streamline their global workforce management, minimize administrative overhead, and focus on what matters most – building successful, global teams with peace of mind.
