Supporting Ethical Engagement 

At People2.0, we are dedicated to driving ethical talent engagement. We view contingent workers not as substitutes for permanent workers but as an essential component of a flexible workforce strategy. 
Our services for the global talent marketplace are about more than compliance and classification. We advocate for fair compensation, benefits, and equal treatment for all non-permanent workers. 
By simplifying the engagement process, we aim to cultivate a mutualistic talent ecosystem that benefits the worker, the talent supplier, and the end client. 
Join us in shaping a more responsible, more collaborative, more ethical future of work. 

Your Partner in Workforce Classification 

People2.0 is your steadfast partner in global talent acquisition and management. We specialize in worker classification and compliance. 
Our employer of record (EOR) and agent of record (AOR) services provide seamless talent engagement solutions for staffing firms, search and recruiting firms, mass talent and enterprise entities, and professional services firms. 
By expertly handling administrative processes, compliance, and back-office functions, we create an environment that benefits all parties involved in contingent workforce engagements. 
Trust us as your guide to navigating the complex world of the global talent marketplace.
