The 8th Annual UNLEASH World Conference & Expo returns to the RAI Amsterdam this 23-24 October. The show will bring together the most powerful community on the Future of Work and HR Tech with +5000 leaders from the most important technology providers, big brands, start-ups, influencers, media and governments, representing over 100 countries worldwide.

Tim Johnson, Business Development Director for evolve is heading to Unleash Amsterdam during 23-24 October 2018 with the evolve team.  Before Tim heads over to Amsterdam we sat him down and quizzed him about Unleash and all things evolve!

BDO evolve - The world’s first global payroll ecosystemWhy did you decide to launch evolve at Unleash?

evolve has been live across 49 countries since March 2017, since then we have been busy adding over 100 other countries, additional workflows, enhancing the UX and testing the world’s first payroll ecosystem. BDO is a responsible risk-averse organisation but you can only plan and test for so long, Unleash in Amsterdam only comes around once a year so we set our launch date around this great event.

Can you tell us what to expect on stand 138 during Unleash?

Our new brand ‘evolve powered by BDO’ celebrates how human inventions have powered people evolution. evolve is a clever blend of some great inventions that allows BDO to deliver our award-winning service across robust secure open technology that will make a real difference to our clients and employees. We will be demoing evolve and celebrating the launch with a few drinks from 1400 in the afternoon. My demonstrations might get more entertaining by 1700 each day!

What makes evolve different to the competitors?

The BDO organisation delivers global payroll across 162 countries with our market leading service, we are proud to have a 92% recommendation score from our global clients, this organisation also delivers Cosec, Expat Tax, Accounting, Audit and many more services. Adding our robust technology and evolve ecosystem to this organisational strength is a unique and complete solution that is not matched.

What are you looking forward to most at Unleash?

Apart from the Bitterballen! It is always great to see who else is innovating in the people technology space, we are also looking for partners that have the robust technology, an API integration strategy and a gaping hole in their global payroll delivery.

Describe evolve in just 3 words

For Red Dwarf fans I would say, ‘Better than life!’

To the attendees of Unleash, I would say, ‘Global Payroll Ecosystem!’
