We guarantee quickly and compliantly hire, pay, and manage a global workforce in many parts of the world.

In a world of ample employment choices, companies need to remain relevant to this segment, incentivizing new ideas and concepts that increase people’s appeal and desire to form part of them.

Attracting talent from different parts of the world has wide benefits. Years ago, it was unexpected that someone from another country worked for a company physically in another place. Today, thanks to technology and companies like us, responsible for the legal part when hiring people, it is possible and profitable.

An employer of record (EOR) can hire staff locally and carry out the legal and regulatory requirements of employment, payroll, and even immigration obligations, but do not participate in day-to-day work activity.

Today we bring you good news. Thanks to the applied success and the demand we decided to expand borders: Now we also work with African countries such as Nigeria, Kenya and Uganda.

Workers get to choose if they wish full-time remote work, part-time or fully return to the office.

Even after the pandemic, the company shared the past week its new hybrid “no return to office” policy that allows employees to decide where and how they want to work.

Cisco’s approach contrasts with some tech giants who have pushed for a return to offices following the rollout of vaccines across the US. Amazon has said it intends to “return to an office-centric culture” for everyone who is not being shot into space at least. Google has signalled it will expect workers to return to offices at least one day per week starting in October.

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Cisco was one of the few companies that already had people working from home. 14% of the staff were remote workers. Last year, where offices had to close forcibly, that number reached 75% of employees working from home.

When most employees began working remotely amid COVID-19 outbreaks and mandated shutdowns. However, Cisco managers found that productivity didn’t seem to take a hit from remote work, in fact it looks like they were more productive when they didn’t have to commute or listen to managers witter on about moving cheese, kicking the ball running or paradigms.

Jeetu Patel, an executive vice president who manages Cisco’s security and collaboration business said: “Anecdotally, I would say we’ve seen a very high degree of productivity. As the productivity has gone up, the thing we have do as a society is to be careful of is fatigue and burnout.”

After internal surveys and managers studying the company’s productivity and outcomes during 2020-2021, they found out that productivity was not affected by working remotely.

Other factors that led the company to choose a hybrid model were saving money and hiring better talent. The main concerns are when it translates to cybersecurity and collaboration. However, Cisco has about $6 billion destined for the research and development of the company. They will be investing in technologies that support the new hybrid work model.

The company expects that 77% of employees will work in the office three days a week and the other days they’ll be working remotely.

A healthy sign: more jobs and higher wages

A healthy sign: more jobs and higher wages

Hiring for these jobs is on the rise in 2021
Reopening made possible by vaccinations against COVID-19. 

America’s employers added 850,000 jobs in June, well above the average of the previous three months and a sign that companies may be having an easier time finding enough workers to fill open jobs. 

Friday’s report from the Labor Department was the latest evidence that the reopening of the economy is propelling a powerful rebound from the pandemic recession. Restaurant traffic across the country is nearly back to pre-pandemic levels, and more people are shopping, traveling and attending sports and entertainment events. The number of people flying each day has regained about 80% of its pre-COVID-19 levels. And Americans’ confidence in the economic outlook has nearly fully recovered.

The report also suggested that American workers are enjoying an upper hand in the job market as companies, desperate to staff up in a surging economy, dangle higher wages. In June, average hourly pay rose a solid 3.6% compared with a year ago — faster than the pre-pandemic annual pace. In addition, a rising proportion of newly hired workers are gaining full-time work, as the number of part-time workers who would prefer full-time jobs tumbled.

Hiring in June was particularly strong in restaurants, bars and hotels, which collectively absorbed the brunt of the layoffs from the recession. Those businesses added 343,000 jobs. Governments added 188,000 positions, mostly in education. And hiring by retailers picked up, with 67,000 jobs added.

Yet there are still factors holding back many people from taking jobs. About 1.6 million people said they didn’t look for work in June for fear of contracting the virus, though that figure dropped from 2.5 million in the previous month. And 2.6 million people who were working before the pandemic have retired.

There are also signs that people are re-evaluating their work and personal lives and aren’t necessarily interested in returning to their old jobs, particularly those that offer low wages. The proportion of Americans who quit their jobs in April reached its highest level in more than 20 years.

But let’s look at the positive side: the economy is being reactivated and companies are hiring more employees. Do you want to know more about how to hire people? Contact Us

Tips for onboarding new employees

More than half of UK firms plan to hire new staff
A simple process for Businesses that have international expansion.

The laborious work of creating a new overseas entity for your business can be difficult, so why not make it easier with some local experts? You need to account for banking, insurance, tax, compliance and more, ensuring the local infrastructure is set-up and sufficient to employ workers. This can often turn people off from expanding overseas, but it shouldn’t.

The employer of record service provides an infrastructure that negates the needs to worry about most of these tasks. They provide a business with the opportunity to hire an employee in global markets compliantly, without the need for an entity or local employee onboarding process.

The following are just some of the benefits of an EOR:

 

Time-saving

An established EOR is the quickest way to grow the global workforce of the client company, making it easier to find the perfect international employees for your team. A process that can often take months at the very least can be performed in a fraction of time, thanks to the EOR’s pre-established entity and on-call network.

 

Dollar saving

By removing the regulatory need for a local subsidiary, your business can save thousands of dollars. There is no need to spend money on human resources, finance, or legal functions as it is all included in the set EOR template.

 

Satisfying compliance needs

Rather than dedicating internal time to satisfying compliant international labour laws and risking the severe consequences if they are not accounted for, an EOR takes this task off your hands and gives you the peace of mind in knowing it is being handled correctly. The EOR provides a compliant solution for international employment regulations and removes your risk of fines, penalties, and business sanctions for non-compliance of international labour laws and practices.

 

Shifting the risk

Continuing on from the last point, a range of other risk factors that come with hiring international employees, and are often made more difficult when working in a sector that you have no experience in, are shouldered by the employer of record.

Above all, an employer of record frees up your time and energy to focus on core business functions while achieving global expansion in a much quicker timeframe. The EOR will take care of human resources and payroll processing for the new employees, while your management team are responsible for managing their day-to-day work.

Advanced technologies, growing economies, access to new markets and a skilled workforce are all factors that motivate companies to expand outside their borders. When considering expanding internationally however, many businesses think that the only one way to achieve this goal is by setting up their own entity in a foreign country.

It is certainly true that this option can work extremely well for companies who are building infrastructure and have pre-defined long-term plans for the country. However, if a business is looking to expand quickly without delays then working with an EOR provider could be the solution.

So, if you’re a company is looking for a fast way to expand their business and hire workers then an Employer of Record (EOR) solution could be considered. Why? Here a list of some of the benefits:

 

Faster expansion

If a business is looking for a quick expansion strategy that enables them to employ remote workers in different countries at the same time, then EOR solutions will help achieve this goal. This is a great way to test the market without having to set up a subsidiary. EOR solutions make it easier for businesses to expand into new international markets quickly and in a safe and potentially profitable manner.

 

Talent Retention

Enables companies to focus on their core business activities
EOR solutions make it easier for business to concentrate on the running of the core day-to-day business. Business can focus on core activities without the hassle of organizing global payroll and HR. EOR solutions save valuable time and resources that would be spent on understanding the complexities of setting up in country.

Covid-19 wiped out millions of jobs. But the vaccination effort is bringing them back.

Now, as vaccinations increase and companies are again able to make projections, they’re staffing up to capture booming demand, with the number of open positions across all online listings soaring 5 million above the pandemic’s start.

 

The EEUU labor market went on a hiring spree in March, adding 916,000 jobs amid the fast-paced coronavirus vaccine rollout.

“With the vaccination program likely to reach critical mass within the next couple of months and the next round of fiscal stimulus providing a big boost, there is finally real light at the end of the tunnel,” Capital Economics said in a research note.

Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal are predicting the US will add an average of 514,000 jobs each month over the next year, for a total of more than 6 million. While such a gain would represent the best 12-month stretch of job creation in decades, the US is not expected to regain all the jobs lost to the pandemic until later in 2022.

The new job listings are in areas that are reopening, like travel, leisure, and hospitality, but also in remote work and tech areas. Demand remains for workers in jobs that got a pandemic boost like construction, delivery, logistics and warehousing, and vaccine administration.

Nearly half of job seekers say they would like a remote job, even after the pandemic, according to ZipRecruiter.

Now, companies are trying to coax people off the sidelines by increasing wages, allowing for more remote work, looking at skills and not just experience. That’s a marked contrast to the rehiring after the recession of 2008 when employers could be quite picky and would layer on skill requirements.

After the storm always comes the calm and companies are hiring more people. But as we know, doing this takes a lot of time and money. Do you want to know more about a way to hire employees saving time and money?  Click here
