Remote, the leader in building, managing, and supporting global, distributed workforces, is announcing the expansion of the Remote Marketplace — an ecosystem of partners curated to support Remote’s mission to open the world of work for every person, business, and country — with a new sustainability partners category. 

“The new sustainability category is close to the heart of Remote. Our mission isn’t just about globalizing the workforce, but also about helping organizations be conscious contributors to the planet,” said Job van der Voort, co-founder and CEO of Remote. “Leading businesses through an ever-evolving global work environment is an incredibly large feat and we recognize the only way to do so is to partner with companies that have a shared vision. The Remote Marketplace helps our customers manage growth and adapt to change with the best tools and support available.”

With the new sustainability category, the Remote Marketplace brings together tools such as a climate strategy developer, carbon management platforms, carbon removal and offsetting integrations, carbon credit and nature-based projects marketplaces, tree planting integrations, workplace giving and engagement platforms, a volunteer portal, and more from leading environmental change companies. One of the latest sustainability partners, Plan A, helps companies decarbonize their operations and develop a long-term sustainability plan with its carbon accounting platform and ESG reporting tool.

WorkReels, the world’s first video storytelling platform built specifically for recruitment and employer branding teams, today announced that it is expanding its partnership program to help recruitment agencies and talent acquisition teams better attract top talent and fill open roles faster. The announcement was made today at the 2022 HR Technology Conference in Las Vegas.

The WorkReels storytelling platform enables talent acquisition professionals, employer branding teams, and recruitment service providers to easily make and share high-quality, affordable social media videos for recruiting for about 1/20 the price of video production. Making a WorkReels video costs about the same price as posting a single job ad.

Fountain, the world’s leading all-in-one applicant tracking system for high volume hiring, today announced the launch of a series of platform updates designed to enhance the applicant experience, including a WhatsApp messaging integration.

Applicants seeking hourly work apply to 4-5 jobs per day on average, with 85-90% of applications submitted via mobile device. In a world where application flows can be notoriously clunky, enabling a smart, fast, and seamless mobile-first experience is the difference between hiring talent quickly and falling behind. As the world’s largest communication platform, the Fountain WhatsApp integration makes it easier for applicants to apply with MMS from anywhere in the world.

“Quickening the pace of the applicant journey is key to winning the speed-to-hire talent competition that’s going on right now,” said Adrienne Gemperle, Chief People Officer at sweetgreen. “We have one chance to make an amazing, brand-building first impression. When you’re actively managing high-volume hiring of hourly field roles, ensuring we create a 5-star team member experience from the moment they apply is a competitive advantage.”
