What’s your employee value?

Benefits every employer should know about EOR
A questions many companies wonder before hiring someone. Here some tips that might help you.

When all the employee costs are subtracted from the employee’s assets, the remainder is the employee’s value. Below there are some factors that must be taken into account to determine this value. First we enumerate the costs, then the assets.

Employee costs



Salary is a fixed cost, which may increase annually as an employee becomes more valuable to the employer.


During the training period, the employee will not be as productive as they will be when the training is completed so this is a cost for the Company


Health insurance, dental plans, sick days, paid vacations, retirement plans, tuition reimbursements and other benefits all add up to a major employer expense.


Computers, telephone service, cell phones, the use of an automobile and other equipment, required by the job, and supplied by the employer is another major expense that figures into the equation.

Employee’s assets

Measuring productivity tells us a lot about the work we’re doing.
It’s the result of the work divided by the amount of work done or the amount of resources used over a certain period of time. To do this, divide the company’s total revenues by the number of employees working there.

For example, in a newsroom, your output/input might be the total number of news releases generated divided by the time it took to generate those releases. For a blogger, it might be the total number of blog posts produced divided by the time it took to write and post those pieces.

Calculating employee value can be a tricky process, but it’s necessary if you want to see your business soar.
Remember that your staff members are your most lucrative assets – if you don’t measure their worth, you risk sacrificing growth.

After doing these calculations you are ready to decide if you can hire a new employer.
And if you need to, there is a simpler and more economical way to make it.

These services can be especially helpful to stay updated on the state and local laws. It may then be the best option for achieving your global growth objectives. Here 5 reasons why you should do it.

Hiring an EOR gives the client’s company the opportunity to manage their time more efficiently and effectively. So, if you want to find new markets, lower risks, facilitate an acquisition and simplify things and costs: EOR is the answer.

1. A vehicle for exploring new markets.

An EOR lets you evaluate the readiness of an international market by hiring workers for you in your targeted country. You can see if it works in the country by starting operations with your new workers, without having to commit the time and money required to establish an entity.

2. Lower risks

Employer of record can handle all payroll, benefits, tax and compliance requirements for your new global workers, so you can focus on their contributions to your organization—not on their risk.

3. Facilitate an acquisition

If your organization has recently acquired a workforce in a new country but does not have a way to compliantly pay the new employees because the deal does not include the legal business entity. An EOR would be a great solution to pay the employees compliantly on your behalf indefinitely, or until you set up an in-country entity.

4. Simplify things

One has to consider the complexity of payment schedules, the number of jurisdictions, and insurance policies involved in your current staff. With that, you can weigh the sums that will be invested in the service provision offered versus the stress and money of doing so by yourself

5. Mind the costs

Keep also in mind the costs, both in time and money, of setting up companies overseas. These sets of actions will extend the scope of liability, the jurisdictions where you can be sued, and will, most likely, exceed the difference in the price for an EOR service provision.

Now that you know that you should hire your employees with an EOR, the questions we need to answer is: What to look for in an EOR provider?

When it comes time to evaluate employer of record providers, there are some qualities to keep in mind to help protect your organization. The utmost importance is the extent of the provider’s knowledge in the countries you are targeting for expansion. One way to gauge this is by finding out how long the provider has been in the country and whether it has a direct entity and is not just relying on local partnerships.

Roots EOR brings your company the tool to allocate staff abroad being compliant with labour requirements, but without having to form a local legal structure. 

With our services our client no longer needs to own a local entity to employ talent compliantly. We offer the most cost-effective way of growing internationally while maintaining legal compliance within the countries your experts work. Want to contact us? Click here

Contractor, local entity or EOR? That´s the question

Contractor, local entity or EOR? That´s the question

Benefits every employer should know about EOR
It is essential for an employer to appreciate the differences before making a decision on which method is optimal for their business objectives and available resources. 

There are two distinct methods for a multinational company to enlist and manage staff in a foreign market: Contractors and EOR.

Contractors run their own business and sell their services to others, unlike employees who work in someone else’s business. They generally use their own processes, tools and methods to complete the work. They usually negotiate their own fees and working arrangements, and can work for more than one client at a time.

Contractors have workplace rights and protections but have different responsibilities relating to insurance, taxation and superannuation.

On the other hand, an Employer of Record (EOR) is a third-party organization that hires and pays an employee on behalf of another company and takes responsibility for all formal employment tasks. Using an Employer of Records allows companies to legally and efficiently engage with overseas workers either in a new country or state, without having to set up a local entity or risk violating local employment laws.

The EOR is charged with carrying out the legal and regulatory requirements of immigration, employment and payroll, but does not participate in day to day work activity.

From the employee perspective, EOR will feel identical to being on payroll, with tax and social security contributions being taken from their monthly paycheck, and the same benefits as any other employee. But for the employer, it eliminates the admin headache and liability. The company can simply engage in a contract with the EOR, and the EOR will outsource the employment to a local partner in the same location as the employee. This local partner also handles HR such as working hours, vacation days, sick leave, and more, reducing operational costs and administrative overhead.

As more companies plan to expand their business globally, it is important to understand that employing abroad directly can be a complex process. Each country has their own rules and regulations regarding compliance, regulatory frameworks, employment laws and taxes. Communicating with specialist tax accountants and employment lawyers will also be necessary, and those costs can rise very quickly. Therefore, setting up an entity can become a costly and time-consuming process which can prove a real distraction to core business.

If a business is looking to expand into a more developed economy in Europe or test a potential market in Latin America, EOR could be a better solution to setting up an entity. An EOR solution is a more cost-effective and faster way to expand a business and hire workers in a foreign country compliantly. Businesses can hire internationally without risk and be operational in a few days without having to set up an entity allowing more time to focus on their core business.

An independent contractor:

  • Do not normally receive employment benefits
  • Pay their own taxes and are not subject to other withholdings
  • May not join a union
  • Generally, do not receive overtime or protection for employment discrimination
  • Contractors may be more vulnerable to financial insecurity than employees. They receive no pay for sick leave or accidental injury. If they get sick, make a mistake, or have an accident, they’re on their own because they don’t have the coverage that an employer provides.


  • Receive employment benefits, like health care and paid time off .

  • Are subject to financial deductions such as income tax and Social Security tax, among others

  • May join a union

  • Are often protected by state and federal law for overtime, minimum wage, and employment discrimination issues

EOR VS PEO: Are They the Same?

EOR VS PEO: Are They the Same?

Benefits every employer should know about EOR
Before hiring an employer you should read this article. 

A PEO (Professional Employer Organization) is an outsourcing company which provides solutions related to co-employment. You set up a relationship with the provider and they will help you to manage the administrative work but employment responsibilities are still on your company.

Below are the main differences between EOR and PEO:

Workers are classified differently:

 If you choose an EOR, then the EOR provides employment and take legal responsibility of the employees, but in case of a PEO, the legal responsibility still lies on you for employing your employees.


Responsibility for business registration:

EOR enables you to hire employees in other countries without registering a physical entity but in PEO you need to register your entity in your location. Difference in minimum number of workers required to start up. EOR can be started with one or two employees but for PEO you need minimum 5-10 employees to start.


Insurance Plan.

For the employer of record, the insurance cost is already included, but in the case of a professional employer organization, the insurance is paid in addition to the PEO service cost which is one of the largest hidden cost in the service.


Employer of Record VS Staffing Agency: Which One is the Best Solution?

An Employer Of Record hires the employee for the foreign client where the employee perform work for the client and the EOR firm will handle all the personal functions of the employee such as payroll, tax depositing, expense claim, social contributions and other paper work. All the employee responsibility is taken by the EOR firm only.

A Staffing Agency just help with the recruiting process of the employee but they cannot hire staff. So, there are no contractual relationship between the employee and the staffing agency. The agency help you with the headhunting services and finds the right candidate according to your requirements.
