Rob Squires, VP and Head of Sales, Asia and Japan, Ceridian, receives the Gold Award for the Best HR Tech – Payroll Solution.

Regardless of where or how they are working, employees still need to be paid, and organisations must comply with increasingly complex regulations as they manage a remote and global workforce.

Ceridian, after completing the acquisition of Ascender and Excelity, has been able to expand their reach and provide complete payroll and human capital management solutions to organisations across a complex and diverse region. “As one team, we now serve 1,500 customers and 2.5 million employees across 30 countries in APJ region,” revealed Rob Squires, VP and Head of Sales, Asia and Japan, Ceridian, as he received the Gold Award for Best HR Tech – Payroll Solution.

“At a time where question marks hang over the future of work, we remain unwavering in our commitment to deliver solutions and services that drive quantifiable value and create meaningful experiences for our customers and their people.”

At a time where the way we work, where we work, and when we work have changed, Squires believes that having a human capital management (HCM) strategy is tablestakes to thrive and survive.

He elaborated, “With the workforce becoming more borderless and skills-oriented with decisions backed by data intelligence, organisations must focus on creating an employee experience that drives value and empowers their people to take control – both in work and life.”
