[REMOTE, September 9, 2021] To acknowledge leaders in the global remote work space, Omnipresent, a global employment services partner, is introducing The Omnis. These awards will celebrate employees and employers who have adapted to a new normal of working remotely, with teams situated globally. The call for entries opens today to all employers around the world who have created new processes, procedures and policies for exceptional remote employment experiences.
“The growth of global remote work has created many opportunities for organizations and their people,” said Kate Gray, Omnipresent Head of People and Talent. “The future of work is remote, and companies are consistently trying new things, failing, and learning how to approach remote work as a corporate culture shift – from the practicalities to mindset. This new awards program will recognize success among employers who have raised the bar for their team members in every corner of the globe. Receiving an Omni recognizes remote hiring standards and elevates employer branding in a new way.”
The Omnis will recognize organizations and their remote hiring practices in six different categories that reflect the stages of an employee lifecycle: Outstanding Recruitment & Talent Acquisition, Outstanding Learning & Development, Outstanding Culture & Communications, Outstanding Asynchronous & Hybrid Working, Outstanding Wellbeing & Benefits, and Outstanding Reward & Recognition. Recognizing companies which are helping their remote employees reach their full potential not only sets a standard for becoming an employer of choice but also for how organizations have shown leadership in this new arena.
The Omnis are designed entirely for a virtual, global environment, allowing entries for employers in any country who have remote team members based in other countries. In addition, the award ceremonies are divided into six individual and interactive online events, between November 4 and December 16, 2021, to feature remote work success stories, discussion rooms, and on-demand learning opportunities for global audiences.
Guenther Eisinger, Omnipresent Co-CEO and Co-Founder, explained, “Intense competition for talent, improved collaboration tools, and the pandemic have contributed to new ways companies look for, attract and retain their global talent pool. As a full-service employment partner to global companies, we have been working alongside organizations that are changing the global business environment. The Omnis recognize their collective efforts and set a new standard for what it means for leaders and leadership in remote employment.”
Unusually for an awards program, winners of an Omni will receive a financial incentive to help with their international expansion plans. Each category winner will not only gain recognition of their new practices being outstanding in their area, they will also receive US$10,000 worth of Omnipresent credits to support their business growth. They will also receive a range of category prizes from event partners that support their remote workforce.
For The Omnis’ first year, trusted partners have been brought on to support remote work and the new standards of excellence for employers, employees, managers, and teams. Those partners include Ben, DBR, Doist, Episode 1, Hibob, Hubble, Perchpeek, and Safetywing. Hubble, the world’s first hybrid workplace platform, is specifically partnering with The Omnis’ Outstanding Asynchronous & Hybrid Working category.
“‘Hybrid working’ wasn’t even a phrase 18 months ago. Adopting such a major change is far from easy—so I’m very excited to be a part of The Omnis, which celebrate and encourage companies taking on the challenge,” said Tushar Agarwal, Co-Founder and CEO of Hubble, “Flexibility, autonomy, and choice in where we work is now the number one demand from workers all around the world. We believe that the organizations that respond to this will ultimately win the war for talent, and for good reason.”
