With 2022 coming to an end, we look back on how far we’ve come over the past year. We’ve been busy growing our team, product, and business. So we’re excited to share our best moments with you.
We started the year strong
We were fortunate to start the year on a high note with the support we needed to fuel our rapid growth. In March, we successfully secured $120 million for our Series B funding. This was an incredible achievement that we’re all really proud of. More importantly, it has helped drive our mission forward to help businesses build the best teams on earth.
Our lead investors are believers in our mission and approach to global work. They include Kinnevik, a European growth investor, and Tencent, a global technology company. We also received investments from San Francisco-based Uncorrelated Ventures and some of our long-standing investors. We're thrilled that Episode 1, Playfair Capital, and Truesight Ventures have been with us since our seed round and Series A.
This funding has enabled us to scale our team and develop our services to meet the ever-growing demand for global employment. And as we look back on this year, we dare say we’ve made significant strides in our progress.
We made our product even better
Providing the right tools to help our clients support their global teams is a top priority. So we’re constantly striving to build a better product for them.
In 2022, we released several highly requested features within the OmniPlatform. These will help our clients to streamline global operations and create a top-quality employee experience.
Here are just some of the features we launched this year:
An all-new admin dashboard
When you log into the OmniPlatform, you’ll now be directed to an all-new dashboard. Get an overview of important pending tasks and see notifications for expenses. You will also be able to view your global team footprint and individual employee onboarding statuses.
A more powerful OmniAtlas
Stay up to date with country-specific employment, benefits, and payroll information in our enhanced OmniAtlas. Compare employee hiring criteria across countries to plan for your global expansion. This information will also help you meet or exceed expectations for employment packages. That way, you can acquire and retain the best talent.
Visa support and sponsorships
Having visa sponsorship options is crucial if you’re hiring internationally or want to offer relocation options. We’re delighted to now offer visa support and sponsorships for 50+ countries. We’ll help you understand various visa options, apply for sponsorship, and navigate each step so you can confidently hire and manage a global team.
Access for line managers
We’ve added new manager and super manager roles to which you can assign direct reports. Managers will also be able to approve expenses for their direct reports in this latest update to the OmniPlatform.
We helped shape the future of work
We understand firsthand how challenging it can be for companies to go global. So we wanted to share our expertise to help businesses embark on this journey.
In September, we published our Global Teams report. This shares how global, remote teams will change the future of work.
It’s an essential read for all business leaders and HR professionals who work within knowledge industries. The report shares how global work will change how we hire, collaborate, and build solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues.
Then, in August, we launched the OmniAcademy. This is our free online learning platform dedicated to helping businesses go global. Each course is designed and taught by experts in their field and is broken down into digestible lessons. Each lesson is packed with actionable tips and step-by-step guides to help learners build successful global businesses.
The OmniAcademy is perfect for time-strapped founders, HR teams, and operations professionals. It’ll help you learn how to grow and scale your business internationally. Excited to learn more? Give it a go here!
We grew as a team
This was an amazing year of growth for Omnipresent. We expanded our team across 54 countries. With so many new faces, it was important to maintain the global culture we built, with everyone championing our mission, cause, and values.
We got everyone together for an OmniRetreat, which was our second annual company-wide offsite. 350 of us gathered in sunny Panama from all across the world for five days of connection, celebration, and clarity.
The entire retreat took months of research, planning, and dedication. But it all paid off. Amid jungle walks, poolside conversations, and team dinners, we strengthened our connections and sparked new ideas. And best of all, we came home with newfound energy and motivation for the months to come.
If you’re interested in planning your own company-wide retreat in 2023, here are some of our top tips to help you succeed.
We’re looking forward to 2023
The past year has been so exciting, and we’re certain that the new year will be even better. We look forward to seeing how the world of work evolves in 2023 and helping our clients to embrace it.
If you’re looking to expand your business globally in the new year, we’re happy to help you on that journey. Have a chat with us to see how we can help you build the best teams on earth.
Thank you for joining us on this amazing journey so far, and we wish you all the best for 2023!
