December 12, 2022 | Hosted by Eric Chemi

Today’s guest is Rick Hammell, founder and CEO of Atlas. He has visited 117 countries, lived in Barcelona, and manages the most extensive direct employer of record (EOR) company with entities in over 160 countries. Rick discusses the idea behind Atlas, a tech platform supported by experts, delivering flexibility for companies to expand across borders, onboard talent, manage compliance and pay their global workforce without needing a local entity. Rick explains how his EOR competes in the marketplace, who their most significant competitor is, and the impact of an EOR in a remote work world for employees and employers. He also shares how companies can avoid the pitfalls of doing business globally and comply, following their countries’ rules and regulations, so employees fully receive the benefits afforded to them.
