Expertise Built Upon Experience
The Mauve Group of Companies came into being in 1996, from an office the size of a small cupboard and a kernel of an idea born out of practicality. At the time of Mauve’s conception, technology was rapidly advancing and as a consequence, business was shifting into a global arena.
With extensive backgrounds in the telecommunications industry, Mauve’s founders knew well the need for remote or mobile workforces. They identified a gap in the market for compliant global payroll, employment and immigration solutions, knowing these would provide organisations and individuals the freedom and opportunity to explore new business territory.
As the organisation expanded its size and reach with a network of strategically positioned local entities, the scope of Mauve Group’s services began to evolve from core employment solutions into the broad bill-of-fare we offer today in more than 60 countries worldwide.
From the smallest requirement to the largest, today the Mauve Group provides expert global knowledge and services to companies across a diverse field of industries, but still retains the inclusive, supportive ethos of its earliest incarnation as the “Company in the Cupboard”.MEET THE TEAM OUR OFFICES
