BairesDev | August 09, 2022
BairesDev, a leading technology solutions company, announced the conclusion of the latest edition of its Giveback Program, focused on promoting diversity and inclusion in the technology industry by investing in the tech talent of tomorrow. In this opportunity, BairesDev partnered with its clients to make 224 donations to 29 different NPOs, 60% more compared to the previous edition.
Twice a year, the company selects a list of NPOs that share its vision of building a more inclusive tech industry and teams up with clients to allow them to choose causes for BairesDev to donate funds. In this edition, BairesDev donated funds to Womxn in Power, EveryoneOn, NPower, Close the Gap, and LaunchCode, among other NPOs, which focus on closing the digital breach faced by many talented people around the world.
Beneficiaries highlighted the relevance of these programs in supporting underrepresented communities and addressing unequal access to opportunities in the tech industry. With BairesDev donations, more than 1,500 talented people from diverse backgrounds will have access to industry certifications, computers, digital training, among others.
"We at BairesDev know firsthand the importance of a diverse and inclusive tech industry and are committed to providing equal opportunities for talented people, wherever they may be, It's inspiring to partner with so many of our clients who are committed to helping close the digital gap facing underrepresented communities."
-Nacho De Marco, CEO and co-founder of BairesDev
BairesDev donations have provided enough to underwrite industry certification testing for all of the women in the next Silicon Valley training cohort. This will give roughly 40 women the industry-recognized certification essential to landing their first job in tech, Said NPower Inc.
Thanks to BairesDev, Close the Gap can fully equip a computer lab in Africa with 30 computers and offer training to local personnel of a school that is in need of ICT devices. The hardware will be installed in a dedicated computer room where on average 20 individual students will make use of each computer. Thanks to your contributions, 600 students who would otherwise be excluded from digital education will now gain digital literacy, said Close the Gap.
The BairesDev Giveback Program, formerly called B-Grants, recently won a Stevie® Award for Corporate Responsibility Program of the Year. Through the program, the organization shows its commitment to helping create opportunities for the tech talent of tomorrow. The next edition of the program will be launched before the end of 2022.

OMNIPRESENT | August 05, 2022
Global employment partner Omnipresent today launches the OmniAcademy, a free online learning platform dedicated to helping HR professionals and senior leaders to grow successful, international businesses with ease.
Developed by Omnipresent's team of HR experts, the OmniAcademy's first course - 'Everything you need to know about international hiring' - comprises 13 step-by-step videos with downloadable guides for time-strapped teams. This is the first in a series of courses, and those who complete them will receive certification for the skills developed in each course.
'We founded Omnipresent on the belief that borderless hiring is a key component in the future of work. And with organisations looking increasingly further afield to hire the best talent in a competitive market, HR leaders need to be equipped with the right information to guarantee a positive employee experience, wherever their employees are based. However, we know first hand that this can be extremely complex - our team of over 400 is currently based in 53 countries, so we've had to navigate these very challenges ourselves. This is why we've created the OmniAcademy: to help HR teams make the most of global work and create a seamless experience for their employees."
-CEO and Co-founder of Omnipresent, Matthew Wilson
The launch of the OmniAcademy comes at a time when 96% of HR professionals are facing challenges with 'future of work initiatives', but 47% 'don't know the best tactics or tools to overcome these issues'. All this in a post-pandemic world where they are tasked with delivering hybrid and remote set-ups, while maintaining a positive employee experience.
Founded in 2019, Global employment partner Omnipresent provides client-focused, tech-enabled business solutions combined with personalized expertise to support hiring people globally. Businesses looking to go global can hire and manage employees compliantly in more than 160 countries through the OmniPlatform, Omnipresent's proprietary digital platform and SaaS product. Companies can easily integrate HR administrative duties, including payroll, expenses, taxes, and benefits, to let them focus on growing their business. As a fully remote company with no corporate headquarters, Omnipresent has grown from a team of two to more than 400 people in 50+ countries worldwide.
