Helping a Leading Toxicology Service Provider Grow Worldwide 

Industry: Occupational Toxicology, Industrial Hygiene‍ 

‍New Markets: Brazil and United Arab Emirates 

Affygility Solutions is a market leader in providing occupational toxicology and industrial hygiene services, training and insights to the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical device industries.‍ 

“We didn’t have the expertise required to hire people overseas and needed a one-stop solution that could cover everything from payroll to health benefits to regulatory compliance and more.” 
- Dean Calhoun; Chief Executive Officer, Affygility Solutions 


Affygility Solution manages its international employees with a tech-enabled onboarding, payroll and regulatory compliance solution. The company’s current infrastructure integrated with Atlas technology to seamlessly onboard, manage and pay new talent while accessing real-time data, helping the company understand the legal, cultural and compliance requirements of Dubai and São Paolo. 
Their proprietary global payroll software has proven invaluable during financial audits. It allows the team to download historical payroll information and provide the audit team with relevant and timely information. 
Atlas' business intelligence, incorporated into the software, has been essential in guaranteeing that vacation, health, severance and salary packages are structured correctly, adhering to local HR policies.


Global compliance was a crucial aspect of Affygility Solutions’ expansion into new markets. The team now regularly collaborates with Atlas to ensure that all employee paperwork is up-to-date and in line with local and global compliance mandates. 


Comprehensive tax, salary and regulatory information about Brazil and the UAE were necessary when hiring and maintaining talent. The Atlas Direct EOR model means support is on the ground and can provide the latest relevant information to Affygility in Brazil, the UAE and any other market where they choose to hire local talent. 


Affygility Solutions is a fully remote company, which made partnering with Atlas and their flexible work model a perfect fit. The support required to hire a remote workforce is balanced by a partner that understands the culture of remote workers in different markets. 

“I spend less than 15 minutes a month on the payroll for our international employees which is incredible. From making an offer to hiring someone in Brazil took less than three weeks.” – Dean Calhoun
