Wagepoint | August 10, 2022
Canadian fintech company Wagepoint is doubling-down on its mission to bring happiness to small businesses and their teams with a new acquisition. KinHR – soon to become People by Wagepoint – has joined Wagepoint's family of products, which will create a single solution that takes payroll, time and attendance and (now) human resources tasks off small business owners' hands so that they can get back to doing literally anything else.
KinHR is known as a simple, friendly and reliable people management software among its 4,500 global users. This makes it the perfect puzzle piece to complete Wagepoint's stack of small business products, offering everything CEOs and founders need to take care of their people right from the moment they're hired.
People by Wagepoint will offer features like an employee directory, time-off management, new hire onboarding, document storage and eSignatures, in addition to ongoing employee performance management tools like employee objectives and reviews. The product will help make workplace operations easier, and maybe even a little "sweeter", for both employers and their teams.
"Payroll and HR go together like summer and popsicles – minus the sticky fingers!, When done right – that is, with a focus on keeping it simple and truly caring about the human experience – both payroll and HR can contribute to a happy workplace, just like ice cream! We're excited to welcome People by Wagepoint to our family of products. Now, we can help our customers create a delightful experience for their employees, right from the moment of hire and at every touchpoint that follows."
- Shrad Rao, CEO of Wagepoint
Delighting customers will remain a key pillar as the company moves forward with the rebrand and builds a team around People by Wagepoint.
Both Wagepoint and KinHR have a Capterra rating of 4.6 out of 5 by their users – notably, for friendly customer support – and the new product will continue building on that trust, says Melissa Benzo, former Director at KinHR and current Director of People by Wagepoint.
KinHR has always been about creating a simple approach to HR software so that small businesses can focus more on their employees and their business, rather than the management of 'stuff' that comes with HR. Wagepoint is just the company to continue that effort and expand on that idea by keeping all things light, friendly, and simple, I always tell KinHR customers 'we're here to help,' and I feel that echoed throughout the entirety of Wagepoint,says Benzo.
People by Wagepoint is the second small business software to be acquired by Wagepoint in 2022. Earlier this year, Timesheet Mobile joined the Wagepoint family and will soon be available to customers for all of their time and attendance needs, rebranded as Time by Wagepoint.
Wagepoint is a small-but-mighty fintech company on a mission to simplify payroll – and maybe even dare to make it delightful! Our online software was created just for small businesses, automating the most "ugh" parts of payroll – like calculating wages and reporting on taxes – so that our customers can get back to doing, well, literally anything else. Backed by the world's friendliest team, Wagepoint is always supportive, never stuffy and refreshingly human. Founded in 2012, we make payroll magic happen for more than 20,000 small businesses, accountants and bookkeepers across North America.

G-P | October 04, 2022
Globalization Partners (G-P), the leading Global Employment Platform™ that makes it fast, simple, and compliant for companies to hire anyone, anywhere, announced the launch of its new brand name, tagline and visual identity. The rebranding reflects G-P's ongoing commitment to breaking down barriers to global business and enabling employment opportunities for everyone, everywhere.
G-P created the Employer of Record category in 2012 shifting the paradigm that required companies to have subsidiaries or local branch offices to expand globally and enabling companies to hire talent globally. Since then, demand for this new way of hiring has exploded with a rapidly growing portfolio of customers as companies around the world embrace working remotely. The new brand embodies the company's vision of enabling global growth for companies and providing employment opportunities for the 'everywhere workforce'.
"We are in an environment where our category, customers, competitors, and culture are all shifting rapidly, It's critical that our brand acts as a signal of who we are and serves as a lighthouse to where we're going. Our evolved branding reflects what we have built, but it also represents our future and embodies the story of how we unlock possibilities through our Global Employment Platform™."
-Heidi Arkinstall, Chief Marketing Officer, G-P
Inspiration for the new brand identity is derived from the concept of a borderless business and the ability to access diverse talent to work across time zones and locations – represented by latitudes and longitudes. This new identity comes at an inflection point for G-P as the company is planning a series of innovative product launches in the coming months that add new capabilities to its SaaS-based technology platform to further enhance the customer experience.
We want to reflect our next phase of growth as we continue to see the demand for our technology solution accelerate around the world, We know that there is boundless potential ahead and this new brand reflects our vision of the future,said Bob Cahill, CEO, G-P.
G-P's solution offers greater access to talent, the ability to scale remote teams and grow revenue faster anywhere in the world. Research firms, NelsonHall, and Everest Group have both named G-P Employer of Record (EOR) industry leaders.
