Whats new in HR Tech? Our roundup tells all.

Lever has added over 400 new customers in Q1. The company also claims  over 100,000 active users using the platform on a daily basis.

“Each company navigated a combination of hiring freezes, layoffs, distributed work, and racial injustices over the past year,” said Nate Smith, co-founder and CEO of Lever. “With hiring on the rise again, we look forward to continuing to support companies in finding top talent, and matching people with their dream jobs.”

PERKS, a new leading player in the People Support Space has officially launched their work-life balance marketplace replicating the big tech campus experience large tech companies like Google offer their employees. Now any organization can offer great team support with PERKS and alleviate the administrative work for your HR team so they can focus on the human component of culture.

PERKS’ mission is to provide an easy, customizable solution for organizations to cultivate great culture and employee recognition, regardless of size, location, or budget.

Remote, the HR technology platform for international payroll, benefits and compliance, has announced exponential growth since its $35 million Series A funding in November 2020, including substantial increases across customers, employees, country availability and new product offerings. These advancements deliver on Remote’s vision to make it easier for businesses to hire international employees and contractors from anywhere in the world.

In the last six months, Remote has directed its funding towards reaching a number of key milestones. The company has:

  • Increased its customer base sixfold since November, with aggressive month-over-month growth.
  • Increased availability by over 100% to 40 countries today. New markets include Germany, Belgium, Hong Kong, Brazil, Argentina and Singapore, with a goal to be available in 80 countries by the end of 2021.
