Key Findings & Highlights:

SafeGuardWorld International (SGWI) is a global managed payroll service provider, and an employment outsourcing and ancillary HR services provider. SGWI started in 1969 as part of a U.K. domestic payroll provider; by 2006 it had begun to focus on international payrolls using an aggregator model, supporting multi-country payrolls through a partnership network of local providers. In 2008 it became independent of the U.K. business following a management buy-out. 

Today, it is delivering services across three or more regions for 60% of its payroll clients; it is delivering ~900k payslips per annum across ~1k payrolls per month, to ~145 clients, 77% of which have U.S. headquarters and ~14% of which have U.K. headquarters. 

SGWI has three key offerings:

  • Global managed payroll services (GMP)
  • Global employment outsourcing (GEO)
  • Global professional services (GPS)

SGWI offers managed payroll services in 114 countries and its operations  are managed from five centers in the U.S., Mexico, the U.K., Hungary and India. 

Certified payroll interfaces from Workday are supported for 113 countries. Its proprietary technology is Unity, which aggregates payroll information, enabling clients to view payslips and reports as well as raise queries through the internet.  

Approximately 63% of its revenues derive from EMEA, with the remainder coming from APAC (~18%), LATAM (~12%), and North America (~7%).
