Our mission is to make it easy to be a global employer

We know what it’s like to be the head of HR at an international organization, with smart people on your team but who aren’t necessarily specialists in international laws and regulations. With Global People Strategist, our idea was to make life easier by creating a workhorse application for support teams such as HR, Finance, and Legal. GPS gives you both the strategy while also solving real-world problems.
