SonicWall makes strategic move to facilitate global growth

Cyber security platform SonicWall has grown in recent times, and the company now have clients in some 215 countries around the world. With this growth has come a shift in strategy around finding and securing talent – and the vendor has recently announced the use of an Employer of Record – EOR – to help facilitate that growth.

SonicWall has undergone several transformations during its 30-year history, the most recent requiring a system reset on how the company manages its global talent pool, particularly recruiting and onboarding processes.

“We’ve gone through several strategic changes to respond to a rapidly changing cybersecurity market, particularly in our sales organisation. Making that shift meant hiring a large global talent pool with the skill sets to match our evolving needs,” said SonicWall Vice President of Global Human Resources Bryce Ashcraft.

Globalization Partners’ SaaS global Employer of Record (EOR) platform enabled SonicWall to both successfully support existing team members around the globe and hire the talent they needed within the highly skilled Eastern Europe market. The company recruited and onboarded hard-to-find talent with ease, helping SonicWall successfully execute its global growth goals.

“Each country is different in terms of its laws and customs,” said Ashcraft. “Globalization Partners’ technology, combined with their in-country expertise, made it easy to compliantly hire and manage team members wherever they are located.”

“For companies like SonicWall that are scaling quickly, our fully compliant SaaS global Employer of Record platform gives them a strategic advantage for hiring top talent in international markets,” said Nicole Sahin, CEO and Founder, Globalization Partners.

As an EOR, Globalization Partners allows companies to hire anywhere in the world by serving as the legal employer, ensuring compliance with local employment laws and regulations, freeing up companies to manage and direct the daily work of their team members.
