Why GoGlobal and how we’re different

  • We’re private: We totally respect that many companies raise a lot of capital and we applaud these successes. At GoGlobal, we simply like people actually in the business to control the business.
  • We’re not a rocket ship: We’re pretty happy on earth. Growth isn’t everything.
  • We’re not a tech company: We fundamentally believe that this industry cannot be replaced by tech in the foreseeable future and it’s the people that make the difference.
  • We’re profitable: We’re pretty prudent in how we spend money because we’re managing our business without outside investors. That said, we’re profitable and continue to grow sustainably. We sleep better at night knowing that we don’t have to raise money. Maybe it’s a little old school, but we believe businesses should be profitable to survive long term.
  • We’re diverse. No, really, we are. Compare the “Our People” page on our website to others you know. We think you’ll agree!
  • We’re transparent: Every month we openly share our strategy and financials so you feel ownership of your role in the company’s success.
  • We’re structured as a partnership versus a corporation: We’re the only EOR in the world that’s structured this way, allowing us to attract some of the best talent since everyone has the opportunity to be a partner in the firm.
  • We are the scrappy underdog: We think it’s more fun to be a pirate than to be in the navy.
