New Interface Enables Organizations to Maintain Local Recruiting Preferences While Ensuring Data Visibility and Security

ATLANTA, Ga. and MELBOURNE, Australia – January 30, 2012 – PageUp People™, a Multinational Talent Management solutions provider, today announced details of its newly launched Global Gateway designed for companies operating across multiple countries, and more specifically, in emerging, high growth markets. With the majority (77%) of revenue growth expected to come from emerging, or high growth markets over the next five years, multinational employers are scrambling to bridge the gap between legacy talent management solutions designed for highly developed countries and western cultures and the technology challenges and cultural and language variances in these emerging markets. Specifically designed to meet the unique recruitment needs of emerging, high growth countries, the new Global Gateway is now included in PageUp People’s recruitment management solution.

The PageUp People Global Gateway enables employers to balance local and global issues, address technical constraints and different cultural practices, and support high volume hiring. The new interface is ideal for multinational employers headquartered in mature markets such as Australia, the United States or U.K., that need to ensure compliance and adoption of corporate recruitment policies while accommodating emerging market regional HR practices and preferences. Among other regional-specific requirements, the Global Gateway supports all languages, including double byte, such as Chinese, Korean and Thai and Vietnamese. With workflows and functionality optimized for the less frequent user – in many cases, the HR generalist versus a corporate recruiter – the Global Gateway makes it possible to have distinct regional processes and talent pooling while maintaining the necessary corporate level oversight.

Karen Cariss, CEO of PageUp People, said, “With a 15 year history of helping employers overcome the challenges of recruiting across multiple countries, PageUp People has developed unique expertise in providing flexibility to fully support regional configuration requirements specific to each market and culture, while maintaining data integrity and talent intelligence visibility across multiple operating units. We are thrilled to now offer the culmination of this experience to all our clients with the Global Gateway as part of our overall recruiting management solution.”
