RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwire - Mar 27, 2013) - SafeGuard World International (SGWI), a leading provider of global managed payroll and global employment outsourcing, is proud to announce that two of its C-level executives have been recognized in this year's Payroll Top 50, a highly anticipated list of payroll professionals issued annually by Payroll World, a leading industry publication based in the UK.
The Payroll Top 50 celebrates and honors outstanding professionals that have made a significant impact on payroll over the last year. Those honored are independently chosen by their industry peers and competitors.
Bjorn Reynolds, as Founder & CEO of SGWI, is growing his company at a time of unprecedented growth in the global payroll industry. As the global economy is stabilizing and businesses are growing, payroll professionals are adapting to the "new normal," choosing non-traditional global payroll models that leverage cloud or SaaS-based technologies that help them meet their complex requirements. SGWI is quickly emerging as a leader in this growing space, serving Fortune 500 and mid-market clients, with Reynolds at the helm.
Last December, Reynolds won a Game Changer Award from US-based Workforce Management, which recognizes young professionals who are making their mark in human resources and other areas of workforce management.
Tristan Woods, CTO, was also included on this year's Payroll Top 50 list, his third recognition, having earned spots in both 2009 and 2011. Woods plays a critical role at SGWI where his team oversees the company's Technology Architecture & Consulting groups, as well as Sales Operations and its Workday integration practice. This role requires a very unique mix of skills -- a thorough and deep understanding of payroll processes and how client requirements are translated into technology systems, delivering automated, streamlined solutions to clients.
Reynolds commented, "This is another great achievement for SGWI. In 2012 we placed 23rd in the Annual Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 of the Top Fastest Growing Private Companies. This award today shows, not only can we grow but we can attract top talent and have the industry recognise it. Our people and our culture are some of the reasons we have emerged as the market leader in this space. I am proud to have two of our people recognised in Payroll World's Top 50, after all, we have changed the way companies process multinational payrolls."
