Immedis was recognized as Global Payroll Supplier of the Year earlier this month at the 2021 Global Payroll Association Awards.  The timing of this award in line with our 5th birthday is a stark reminder of how exceptional our evolution has been. Long before Immedis was established, our global mobility clients kept asking us to support their global Payroll. Christine Keily, our Chief Tax and Payroll Officer, often talks about how we built Immedis from the side of our desks and gradually carved out a standalone business. In 2016 we had an inclination we were starting something special. However, none of us could have anticipated what we’ve gone on to create. This award is an external endorsement that clearly demonstrates that we are the Best Global Payroll Supplier in the market. 

Immedis was among 13 global payroll supplier finalists evaluated by judges who are leaders in their field with years of payroll experience across the industry and public services. Judges sought individuals and organizations of distinction that stand out from the crowd and exemplify the very best of leadership, teamwork, and innovation. They selected Immedis as the category winner among a highly competitive field of all our key competitors.   

The feedback we received was that our technology, services, customer success stories, and our commitment to raising the profile of payroll as an industry and a profession resulted in our award. The judges could see how passionate Immedis is about payroll innovation and supporting our customers’ evolving global payroll needs. 

We are honored to receive this award from the Global Payroll Association, one of the most important and influential organizations focused on the needs of payroll and HR professionals across the globe. Winning Global Payroll Supplier of the Year is a testament to the commitment of the entire Immedis team to deliver customer value. We’re thrilled with this award, and we’re looking forward to building on our momentum for the rest of the year and into 2022.    

The GPA Awards distinction comes close on the heels of us announcing more than a dozen awards and accolades in 2021 for the Immedis Platform, our company, our culture, and our people. These awards are an incredible achievement for Immedis and are a testament to how far we’ve come over the past five years. 

Reminiscing on our fifth birthday Christine, shared questions we asked each other as we launched Immedis five years ago-  

  • What do we want to be famous for?  
  • Where do we want to be in five years?   

We stated (word for word), we wanted to be the number one provider for Global Mobility and international payroll services – famous for high-quality customer service and technical excellence – a provider to be relied on and trusted, and we wanted to be a name that comes to mind for any Global Mobility or International payroll tender – well known in the international market for our expertise in assisting employers with these issues with a solid customer book of respected clients. 

If you had told Mark Graham, Christine Keily, or I, what we would have achieved by 2021, I don’t think we’d have believed you. We now operate in 150+ countries and process payroll monthly for almost 50,000 employees. We’ve grown to a workforce of over 300 with offices across the globe. 

For Immedis to be Best Global Payroll Supplier in the market in 2021, five years to the day since we were founded, is a remarkable feat. I genuinely believe we have the best team, the best platform, the best partners, and indeed the best customers. We are looking to do so much more, and I have no doubt that the next five years will bring us closer to achieving our mission of delivering touchless global payroll on a single platform. As one of our values states- We are on a mission. 

A big thank you to everyone who has helped us get to where we are today. We couldn’t have done it without you.
