23.04.2024Topia, a leader in technology for global talent mobility and distributed workforce management, and Jobbatical, the employee relocation platform, are thrilled to announce a partnership to simplify how businesses manage the complexities of international work relocations. The collaboration will advance the landscape of global talent mobility by integrating Jobbatical’s unique visa and relocation services with Topia’s global mobility platform.

Under the partnership, Jobbatical’s innovative approach to making the visa and relocation process twice as fast and three times more cost-effective through AI, automation and a team of international immigration experts, will be integrated into Topia’s comprehensive suite of global mobility solutions. The partnership will set a new standard in global mobility, making it much easier and clearer for businesses to handle the challenges of moving their employees to different countries for work.

Bill Mastin, CEO at Topia: “We know from our customers that the ability to recruit talent or scale a business globally is either a challenge or a competitive advantage. Often physical relocation is required and this can be costly, stressful and disruptive if not managed correctly. Technologies like the Topia and Jobbatical platforms have been designed to help companies manage and automate the process for assignments, moves and permanent transfers effectively; all with a firm focus on compliance. I’m very excited we are announcing this partnership to bring these solutions to the market together. This is an opportunity for our customers to take advantage of the best solutions solving challenges related to global mobility, immigration and business travel compliance on the market.”

Karoli Hindriks, CEO and Co-founder at Jobbatical: “There is a huge economic opportunity in global workforce mobility—the estimated gains from removing labour mobility barriers often range from 50–150 percent of world GDP. That’s why, at Jobbatical, we’ve made it our goal to make moving to a new country as easy as booking a flight. We achieve this by combining our global mobility expertise with the best technology on the market. Our partnership with Topia marks a significant milestone toward that goal. Together, we can make international relocation a much less stressful and more positive experience.”

About Jobbatical
Jobbatical is a visa and relocation platform for businesses that uses AI, automation and a team of international immigration experts to help companies and their employees manage the difficult, time-consuming and often unclear process of moving to another country for work. It makes the process twice as fast and three times more cost-effective by automating the most time-consuming tasks and using in-house immigration experts to bring clarity to an otherwise archaic and complex process. In 2022 alone, it managed the relocation of more than 6,000 workers and their families from companies like N26 and TravelPerk.

Founded as an international recruitment platform in 2014 by Karoli and Ronald Hindriks and later joined by Ankur Agarwal, the company pivoted in 2019 to focus on relocation and immigration services after recognising the challenges of global hiring. Jobbatical has raised over 20 million euros from investors like Inventure, Union Square Ventures, Swiss Post Ventures, Karma VC, Metaplanet, and Devotion Ventures, as well as a number of angel investors.
