PANGEO is Globalization Partners’ annual conference designed to equip companies with the ideas, skills, and best practices to thrive in the new world of global remote work. 

PANGEO will bring together visionaries from around the world, who will discuss key trends, strategies, and personal experiences — designed to help you build fast and agile remote teams. During this free, three-day event, attendees will get a chance to hear from experts on how to build efficient, high-performing global remote teams, how to create integrated employee experiences, and why both compliance and speed are critical for long-term success in 2021 and beyond.

PANGEO derives its name from the 300-million-year-old supercontinent, Pangea, the original unified earth landmass. 100 million years later Pangea divided to form our seven modern-day continents. Today, our world is transformed — reunited once again in what we call PANGEO — a new world of opportunities without boundaries, as post-pandemic workforces move to remote and hybrid models putting the world’s workforce on one platform. At PANGEO we will celebrate this and Globalization Partners, the global industry leader, will share this knowledge.
As the creator of the Employer of Record category, Globalization Partners is not only the global industry leader in terms of innovation but is also the fastest growing employer of record in the world.

“Globalization Partners is the only global expansion solution operating at scale”

Remote working was already becoming a global phenomenon and the worldwide pandemic

remote working we have global mobility and the democratisation of work as additional
factors affecting how we attract, hire, and retain our teams. Globalization Partners removes
borders, breaks down barriers and presents zero limits to companies wishing to hire the best
talent anywhere in the world right now in a matter of hours!
