Mel’s tip of the day
We are thrilled to formally announce our partnership with Mercer, a global leader in HR consultancy. Mercer, known for its forward-thinking approach to work and talent mobility, has chosen to join forces with Work From Anywhere to further its commitment to preparing businesses for the future of work.
Why Mercer chose Work From Anywhere is simple – they envision a future where the global talent pool is not an exception but the norm. They foresee a world where companies confidently adopt new operating models such as Employers of Record and Digital Nomad Visas, and champion the concept of an agile, globally distributed workforce.
However, as our regular newsletter readers will know, such a future comes with its challenges – including tax, legal, and immigration risks. The partnership between Work From Anywhere and Mercer aims to provide clients worldwide the power to manage their compliance and effortlessly navigate these innovative work models and associated risks at the touch of a button.

“What Work From Anywhere have built is truly revolutionary. I am a tax professional myself and tell everyone they need this tool. This tool truly allows companies to act on decision making at unheard of speeds.” Jessalyn Dean, Managing Director
We’re delighted to officially be on Trustpilot and have been blown away by the feedback everyone has given us. Curious to hear what others have said?
Overall Risk Rating
We’ve made one subtle, yet major change to the platform over the last month with the inclusion of an overall risk rating. This traffic light system helps simplify the interpretation of the assessment, speeds up the decision making process and enables wider approval delegation for remote work trips or hires.
For example, the compliance team may currently be a bottleneck, drowning in requests from employees. Now, they can quite easily delegate responsibility down to line managers with a simple approval process based on the overall risk rating:
Low Risk => Automatically approved
Medium Risk => Escalated to compliance team for review and approval
High Risk => Escalated to compliance team for review and requires executive team approval
