CHICAGO, October 20, 2023Atlas, the pioneer of Employer of Record (EOR) services, is pleased to announce its continued recognition as a Leader in NelsonHall's NEAT Vendor Evaluation for Global Employer of Record (EOR) Services 2023. This latest recognition follows on from Atlas' leadership position in the 2022 edition of the NEAT Vendor Evaluation, solidifying the company’s reputation for excellence in the EOR industry. 

The NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation & Assessment Tool (NEAT) analyzes the performance of vendors that offer global EOR services, allowing strategic sourcing managers to assess the capability of vendors across a range of criteria and business situations and identify the best performing vendors. Evaluating vendors on both their ‘ability to deliver immediate benefit’ and their ‘ability to meet client future requirements’, vendors are identified in one of four categories: Leaders, High Achievers, Innovators, and Major Players. 

In recognizing Atlas as a Leader in the overall EOR market segment, NelsonHall pointed to the company’s ability to meet future client requirements as well as delivering immediate benefits to its global EOR services clients. 

Jeanine Crane-Thompson, Principle HR Analyst at NelsonHall, said:

Atlas' positioning as a Leader in the 2023 Global EOR NEAT reflects its flexibility, agility, and enabling technology aligned with client and worker UX expectations, talent needs, and data requirements. Atlas' culture, and its solutions anchored by the Atlas HXM platform, provide full employee lifecycle support, delivering continued opportunity and career mobility and extended workforce insights and value to its clients.

In particular, Atlas' strengths were identified as: 

  • A mature EOR service provider, established in 2015, that offers multinational firms across all market segments compliant service-enabled technology solutions with capabilities across 160 countries and 13 industries, with targeted growth in underrepresented regions and countries. 

  • Its 100% direct EOR services model that strengthens the service quality and compliance for clients by eliminating third-party global and in-country partners. 

  • The Atlas HXM platform, which offers a single and modern system supporting all aspects of human experience management, including global expansion, onboarding, payroll, and resource management. The company maintains a robust product roadmap supporting continuous improvement and relevancy of the platform's functionality, including the development of expanded AI and fintech capabilities. 

  • Atlas' cultural initiatives and human interaction focus, such as learning opportunities for internal team members and worksite employees, the ESG program, and DEI values, demonstrate the company's commitment to its employees and support client and employee retention.
