This is an important move for PGC as we establish a new office on the west coast – allowing closer relationships with our clients in this area. It also means that we can cover multiple time zones to now offer both workers and clients support for 18 hours of the day.
The San Francisco team is led by Gus Ide, VP Business Development. He’s been an integral part of the company’s growth since joining the London office in 2016 and is excited to start this new stage:
“This is a big season for PGC. Having this new office on the west coast, in addition to our presence in New York, London and Toronto, will allow us to considerably improve communications with our international clients and extend PGC’s support and services to new and existing relationships. We’re very excited about this new opportunity and beginning the next chapter in the PGC story!”
PGC’s Managing Director David Bagheri has been with the company for more than five years and has seen it grown and adapt to the needs of our clients and the market. He commented on the new office:
“Over the last few years, we have had a growing number of clients and partners on the West coast. Our new San Francisco office will allow us to continue to partner with our client base and allow us to offer more workforce management solutions to companies looking to grow their workforce. The move supports our focus on developing technology, through our own platform Precision™ and partnerships with other platforms, many of which are based in California.”
California’s thriving economy is ranked as fifth largest in the world and San Francisco’s Bay area well-known as a hub for tech innovation. So, we are well-placed to begin our new chapter alongside the most forward-thinking companies in the world as well as launch our own proprietary technology later in the year.
California is also a state that is at the forefront of the gig economy movement. With over 57 million contract workers in the US, and predictions for this number to significantly increase over the next decade, it’s a trend that shows no signs of abating but presents its own challenges. Varying taxes in each of the 50 US states along with changing employment laws and risks such as IC misclassification all create complexity when employing a contingent workforce.
As a workforce management platform, PGC simplifies this process and offers expert support along the way. Registered across all 50 US states and 13 Canadian provinces and territories, we take on the legal responsibility for your workers and manage payroll, taxes, insurances, benefits, contracts and compliance. This leaves you to focus on running your business.
