Topia Wins RemoteTech Breakthrough Award for “Hybrid Work Innovation of the Year”

Annual Awards Program Recognizes Innovation in the Global Remote Technology Industry.

SAN FRANCISCO, June 20, 2024Topia, a leader in technology for global talent mobility and distributed workforce management, today announced it has been selected as the winner of the “Hybrid Work Innovation of the Year” in the 5th Annual RemoteTech Breakthrough Awards conducted by RemoteTech Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that evaluates and recognizes standout technology companies, products and services empowering remote work and distributed teams around the globe.

Topia’s Remote Work Solution enables intelligent and compliant remote work at scale. The platform allows organizations to automate key parts of the request, review, approval, and management processes relating to remote work, all while ensuring employees and businesses remain compliant with local regulations. Configurable logic based on compliance rules, risk tolerances, and company policy proactively guides employees towards acceptable remote work options, simultaneously streamlining the management process for HR and global mobility teams.

The platform is designed to make it easier for organizations to offer a modern remote work program. Features include a consolidated repository to receive and manage all remote work requests, an interactive tool for employees to explore relevant remote work options tailored to the company’s specific policies, and intelligent decision support that surfaces potential compliance and risk impacts, whether these relate to immigration or tax.

The system automates downstream service authorization, and all necessary agreements and documents are stored in a central, secure platform. The employee portal allows users to manage any required tasks or action items and receive a supported experience from their employer. Automated alerts and dashboards ensure work is happening where it should be but on a non-intrusive, privacy-first basis that puts employees in control of their data. Topia also helps organizations understand the impact of remote work on their broader business via the solution’s reporting capabilities.

“Remote and hybrid work have become an important part of any modern talent and business strategy. We set out to enable remote work management at scale and help organizations embrace more flexible, agile people strategies without creating more work for their HR teams,” said Bill Mastin, CEO at Topia. “We’re delighted to receive this recognition from RemoteTech Breakthrough and it shows our commitment to helping companies support their distributed workers by providing the industry’s first end-to-end solution for remote work that puts the employee at the center. Our technology helps to ensure employers can attract and retain top talent by offering the flexible work policies that employees love, without compromising on compliance.”

The mission of the annual RemoteTech Breakthrough Awards program is to conduct the industry’s most comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the top technology companies, solutions and products in the remote technology industry today. This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

“Topia provides access to a holistic solution that covers all types of talent mobility. Employees now expect their employer to offer some form of remote or hybrid work. Organizations implementing policies for this type of work need a way to manage the influx of employee requests without relying on spreadsheets or email as well as taking compliance into account,” said Bryan Vaughn, Managing Director of RemoteTech Breakthrough Awards. “Topia makes it easy to adopt remote work policies employees want without risking compliance headaches or mountains of manual work. This remote work offering provides an employee-centric solution that brings remote work to the forefront of talent mobility and strategy. We’re happy to award them with ‘Hybrid Work Innovation of the Year!’”
