Recruiting + HR Tools 🛠

"A few years ago, a globally distributed workforce was exotic. There had to be a reason. Post-COVID, companies are hiring talent wherever they can find it. For us, it meant a big shift in product strategy. We had to build that concept into the foundation of Rippling. I think HR and finance professionals are going to expect global solutions from now on. It's not going away."
