ATLANTA — June 25, 2012— HRToolbox, a global provider of expatriate management tools, today announced a series of affordable new tools — Professional Toolbox™, Total Toolbox™ and Enterprise Toolbox™ — to more efficiently meet the challenges of managing a global workforce. These easy-to-use tools can replace the cumbersome spreadsheets used by many in Global HR and solve common assignment management issues such as global payroll accumulation and compensation and workflow management. Companies can choose the best Toolbox solution for the size and needs of its expatriate population.
“Our goal is to provide the tools that HR professionals need to properly manage a global workforce,” said Thomas Shelton, president of HRToolbox. “We offer a variety of tools that meet the needs, as well as the budgets, of small companies with just a few global employees to much larger corporations managing thousands of global employees. Spreadsheets have historically been used to manage small programs and we’re launching these new tools to change that.”
“With HRToolbox, balance sheet calculation went from taking several weeks to a number of days,” said Joe Crumly, the director of international employee relations at ABS, a leading marine and offshore classification society. “As our expatriate population grew, HRToolbox allowed us to effectively streamline the process and accommodate our rapid growth.”
