Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We had the need to hire an employee (not send an ex-pat) in the Middle East. Once we identified the perfect candidate, Velocity Global came to the rescue! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

US HR offices want to have all the answers regarding foreign law/s and policy but in some situations we should just admit we need help! Some HR departments want a third party to just help them help themselves. In our case we wanted a third party to not just help but do all the work, ask us for approval and make the task easy, compliant, cost effective and finished on time. VG did this for us!

The task was not easy as there was civil unrest in Lebanon, COVID restrictions in Kuwait and Dubai, and a bog down, and at one time, complete closure of all foreign government offices. VG helped us get through. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Projects like this are not cheap. But VG did all they could to help us make best economic decisions to help the employee AND the company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Hiring a foreign employee during a pandemic. Managing Permits, transfers, housing, dependent transfer, pay, benefits etc in a foreign country. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We had to hired on an employee in Spain, in a matter of 3 weeks in the middle of holiday. Super tight window and they made it happen. Super happy with the team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Team-From my first conversation with Nick, to the handoff to Sabrina, to working with the international team like Pablo and others. Just super happy with their level of dedication on making this project work and on time with such a short window and without having any experience in the past (for myself on how to do this). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Velocity Global helped us onboard and pay an employee based in another country, which would have given rise to a permanent establishment causing all sorts of issues from a tax and compliance perspective. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

They take care of all compliance, tax and legal aspects of employing someone in a foreign country. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Using a Global PEO is an added cost and an extra layer between the company and employee. However, the cost is worth avoiding having to set up a permanent establishment, and Velocity do their best to not interfere with the company-employee relationship. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We overcame an issue of hiring someone to work in the United Kingdom when we did not have a way to process income tax, social security, etc. The main benefit has been to be legally compliant with tax and employment regulations without having to come up to speed ourselves.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I have worked with Velocity for a few years now. They have been in good partner in placing expats as well as finding internal help for us in various regions. We have been partners now for several years and do not utilize anyone else for our international placements. Velocity has also assisted with the tax needs of expats and outs NAL in connection with the right people to help those employees with their tax needs and goals. These are capabilities NAL does not have internally so the partnership is appreciated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Velocity is very responsive to the needs to NAL. If there are issues, they are quick to resolve them. They have been quick to place employees in the regions that they are needed. it has been a very good partnership for North American Lighting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Overall, the service is great and Velocity has proven to be a good partner. Billing is sometimes a little difficult due to looking at currency conversion. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to place employees internationally without having to set up companies in the regions we need a limited number of people in. With Velocity, we are not required to have additional overhead in the areas we are placing employees. This enables out US workforce to not do as much international traveling and allows us to strategically place employees in the regions and areas they are needed. Partnering with Velocity will continue to solve these issues for us in the future and will create new business opportunities for North American Lighting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Velocity helped with the set up of our International employees when our division was bought by a Private Equity company. They executed the contracts in a timely manner and handled this task with professionalism and customer service. We met with each employee so they could understand Velocity as their PEO and how their salary and benefits would be handled while with Velocity. Our goals were to become a stand alone company before our Transitional Service Agreements ended with our previous company and this was accomplished. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Velocity has always provided quick responses when we have inquired with questions concerning employee contracts, employee issues, employee benefits, etc. We have employees in multiple countries. They always explain in depth the laws in each company with their expertise. Using Velocity, we are able to have International employees without having to set up a legal entity in each country. I also like being able to enter bonuses that need to be paid out on annually. I can also go on the Velocity site and be able to view contract, personal information and other documents that need to be periodically reviewed. Our account always makes himself available for questions needed at a moments notice. His customer service is exceptional. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Velocity is helpful in many ways. I wish their was more help when we need to retrieve IT equipment, like laptops and cell phones when we terminate the employee. However, I realize these are our company's assets. We need to rely on the employee to return the IT equipment. Also, the cost would be a downside for our business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

I would highly recommend Velocity Global. They are professional and have shown great customer service. You can be guaranteed that you are getting the correct information for each country you are working with since laws are so different in each country. Velocity will do the research for you. Velocity also provides you a point of contact to reach out for questions or concerns. Our point of contact has been exceptional to work with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Velocity is helping us with terminating employees in the different countries. Velocity knows all the laws and regulations of the different countries. Their expertise with separation contracts helps our company from being in legal trouble and makes the separation as seamless as possible for the employee being impacted. Velocity will be on each call informing the terminated employees their benefits and final pay they will be receiving at the time of separation. This is very helpful so there is not confusion with the employee. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Velocity Global enabled us to make our first international employee hire in Canada, looking after the employment contract, healthcare insurance, expenses and payroll. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I have found the VG team to be friendly, responsive and reliable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Their service fees are higher than some other providers. Our employee has also mentioned that expense claims can take over a month for reimbursement, but I can't be certain if this is due to the process or another factor. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

The PEO service enables our business to hire in a country that we are not yet registered in. It's also important to us that the employee feels integrated and a part of the wider team despite being employed in a different geographical location. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Velocity Global helped us hire our first international employee in Singapore, further complicating this was that the person we wanted to hire was not a Singaporean National. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Everything!! I reached out to Velocity Global in a state of panic. We had verbally committed to hiring someone in Singapore, something we had been trying to do for months, and we were going to use a different International PEO. At the final hour that International PEO told us their salary requirements to hire non-Singaporeans in Singapore had changed to an astronomical level.

Given this person was about to quit her existing job and her unique qualifications we needed to find a way to hire her ASAP. I called Velocity Global and in a matter of 48 hours we had figured everything out!

I have no idea what we would have done without them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Literally nothing - couldn't have been easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Just do it! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Velocity Global made the process of expanding into our fourth country easy. The process was straightforward and well explained. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Really can't cite an issue. All our expectations were met or exceeded. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Check with others, but Velocity Global exceeded the other PEOs we considered. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

For a small growing company, the challenge of hiring in a new country and complying with all process and requirements can be daunting. We were underway with Velocity Global within a few days after kickoff, and the candidate was under contract two weeks later. Superb service from our Velocity Global team.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We have been using Velocity for a few years now and the key is to really be on top of things. My experience has not always been great but I finally was assigned a great customer rep and I ask a lot of questions and insist on getting detailed answers. The last few hires have been onboarded successfully and we opened Chile and New Zealand and have received great help. It costs, for sure, but the service is worth it. I am not using them for Europe as I have found them lacking in experience or effective partnerships. We have been using them in India for years and it's great. Australia was handled very thoroughly. I have considered switching to a different PEO but the level of support I have received in the last year has convinced me to stay. Their network is global for sure. So in a few words, Velocity has experience in supporting a very wide variety of countries, either directly or through partners, pick your country, ask a ton of questions and in the end it will all be a matter of who is the team supporting you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

My rep. The possibility of many countries. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

According to the country I have experienced lask in attention to details and inability to answer basic questions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Be very specific in what you need, ask for a cost schedule. Ask for the country cheatsheet. Ask a lot of questions, don't give up until you get clear answers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to hire professionals in several countries where we do not have representation. The benefit is to be able to have some parts of the world covered by our workforce without having to establish an office in those countries. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

They are super communicative, have great tools and resources to use at your disposal as a client, all their tools are very easy to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They don't accept payroll changes after the 6th of the month, when our payroll is paid on the 28th. Because of this, our salespeople are paid 2 months in arrears on commissions. There needs to be more flexibility on this, as well as off cycle payrolls for whatever issues come up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
