Topia Named ‘Strategic Leader’ in Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent & People Success for Fourth Year in A Row

Topia’s end-to-end platform for global talent mobility and distributed work has been recognized in independent analysis by Fosway Group for its demonstrated ability to offer enterprise customers innovative solutions to help them manage increasing work location flexibility for employees in an efficient, compliant way.

SAN FRANCISCO (09 November, 2023) – Topia has been named a ‘Strategic Leader’ in the 2023 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent & People Success for the fourth consecutive year.

To achieve this position, Topia’s technology platform was evaluated across five wide-ranging areas – performance, potential, market presence, total cost of ownership and future trajectory. Achieving recognition as a ‘Strategic Leader’ is defined by Fosway Group as offering a broad scope of features, having sophisticated solutions to solve for enterprise-level complexity and showing a proven ability to consistently meet customer needs. 

This assessment highlights Topia’s expertise in providing market-leading solutions to companies trying to manage their distributed workforces more effectively. Whether their focus is on global talent mobility, remote work management or business travel compliance – or all three – Topia is helping some of the world’s most prestigious companies automate key processes related to employee movement and workforce location. With increasing numbers of employees working in places other than a designated office, it has never been more critical for organizations to optimize their approach to distributed work. Doing so will allow them to attract and retain the best talent while remaining compliant no matter where their employees are located.

“Retaining our position as ‘Strategic Leader’ is a validation of the extensive work we’ve done over the past 12 months to enhance Topia’s platform so that we can continue to offer clients the best possible technology solutions for distributed workforces,” said Bill Mastin, CRO at Topia. “Our product roadmap has been shaped by what our customers need in order to contend with the new business realities of mainstream hybrid working, the return of employee mobility and greater complexity around tax and immigration compliance. We’ve been helping companies of all shapes and sizes use technology to optimize their talent strategies, automate workflows to save time and money and gain greater visibility into where work is taking place so they can better manage risk. We’re proud that this has been recognized in the latest Fosway analysis.”

David Perring, Chief Insights Officer at Fosway Group and Lead Analyst on the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent & People Success, commented: “Topia continues to play a unique role in the employee experience with their International Talent Mobility solution. With a laser focus on international employee relocations and risk mitigation for cross-border workers, the business looks set for a productive 2024. Congratulations to them on their position as Strategic Leader in this year’s Fosway 9-Grid™ for Talent & People Success.”
