Is one of your goals for this year to improve your business? this article could help you.

1. Get organized

To achieve business success, you need to be organized. It will help your complete tasks and stay on top of things to be done. A good way to be organized is to create a to-do list each day. As you complete each item, check it off your list. This will ensure that you’re not forgetting anything and completing all the tasks that are essential to the survival of your business.

 

2. Keep detailed records

By doing so, you’ll know where the business stands financially and what potential challenges you could be facing. Just knowing this gives you time to create strategies to overcome those challenges.

 

3. Analyze your competition

To be successful, you can’t be afraid to study and learn from your competitors. After all, they may be doing something right that you can implement in your business to make more money.

 

4. Understand the risks and rewards

A good question to ask is “What’s the downside?” If you can answer this question, then you know what the worst-case scenario is. This knowledge will allow you to take the kinds of calculated risks that can generate tremendous rewards.
Understanding risks and rewards includes being smart about the timing of starting your business.

 

5. Be creative

Always be looking for ways to improve your business and make it stand out from the competition.

 

6. Stay focused

It takes time to let people know who you are, so stay focused on achieving your short-term goals.

 

7. Be Consistent

Consistency is a key component to making money in business. You have to keep doing what is necessary to be successful day in and day out. This will create long-term positive habits that will help you make money in the long run.

 

8. Hire talented people

Companies are facing serious challenges in finding the right talent. So, it’s more important than ever for companies to understand the opportunity a global recruitment strategy can provide.

Hiring the right person for a job opening is usually no easy task — and it’s an economically crucial one to get right. The combination of recruiting, training costs, and benefits associated with hiring a new employee can cost an employer thousands of dollars. If that new hire doesn’t work out, that money is essentially wasted. What’s more, a company that cannot consistently retain employees can experience serious negative consequences, such as low employee morale, lowered productivity, and reduced product or service quality — all elements that can damage its profitability.

Remote staff makes difference

Hence the importance of hiring trained workers. Many times, the indicated worker is not in the same country, but today that is not a problem. Roots EOR makes it possible for your company to hire worker no matter where they are. How? Contact Us

Why are business expanding into Latin America?

Why are business expanding into Latin America?

Let’s have a look how you can incorporate your company to this wave of expansion

Main post image

There are many factors driving this shift to Latin American expansions. One often-cited explanation is the so-called “U.S.-Factor.” Many businesses are moving to Latin America due to:

  • Favorable production and operational costs
  • Fantastic transport links to and from the United States with manageable flight times
  • Huge expanses of coast which equates to massive shipping capacities
  • Similar time zones to the United States
  • Progress in terms of infrastructural indices found in Latin America. The countries are modernizing at an impressive rate, and are more accommodating than ever for key considerations

However, the development that has arguably had the largest impact on convincing companies to move operations to and establish a local entity in Latin America, has been the emergence of startup incubators and accelerator projects. Both private and government-backed projects are common and have facilitated the entry into the Latin market to great success.

 

What Is a Startup Incubator and Is It the same as an Accelerator?

Startup incubators and accelerators are relatively modern concepts, but both nurture innovation. However, both terms are bandied about quite frivolously, and the subtle nuances of each institution are often lost.

Both institutions serve to support the development of young companies, but the difference is where and how the aid is distributed. An accelerator is perhaps simpler to understand, as it does exactly what it says on the tin; an accelerator provides support, consultancy, and crucial cash flow to companies to hasten the rate at which they grow. Candidates normally enter an application process, which will see them selected for the program. With this support and advice, companies have the support they need to pursue (and reach) their goals in a significantly shorter amount of time than had they not been in the program.

An incubator, on the other hand, has the same goal, but ultimately approaches the challenge from a slightly different standpoint. While an accelerator will take an already-existing young business and try to take it to ‘the next level,’ incubators look to offer direction, management, and financial support for a concept and aim to turn it into a functional, profitable business. The slightly more maternal nature of an incubator means that there is no time frame and is perfect for projects of smaller scale.

Is your business ready to implement a global expansion strategy?

We can help you to hire employees in Latin America and anywhere in the world. Today, thanks to teleworking this is possible. You don’t have to know all the labor laws or be an expert. Leave that in our hands. Contact Us

As the Covid ends, more and more companies want to hire employees from other parts of the world. How to do it?

With an end to the COVID pandemic now on the radar, many companies are beginning to focus on a return to growth and international expansion. In times past this presented a number of challenges, especially when you were confronted with all the complexities associated with setting up in a new country: different laws, unfamiliar tax regimes, employment regulations, employee benefits and entitlements, currency exchange, payroll issues etc. That’s the reason why so many smart companies embarking on international expansion today are utilizing an ‘Employer of Record’ (EOR) structure in each country of employment.

Countries continually change regulations on immigration, employment and tax in order to boost and protect the economy. For this reason, it is very difficult for companies to hire employers from other parts of the world. Still, it is possible and easy.
The need for EOR is here to stay.

International business expansion was once a long-term, multi-year foreign assignment.

Nowadays, however, global mobility is a hot topic. In fact, more companies can now enjoy the idea of shorter, more flexible overseas postings in shorter time frames.

Companies began to explore options such as outsourcing payroll, hiring immigration attorneys and seeking
local business partners to alleviate some of the regulatory burdens.

But a more complete solution was needed, allowing for the development of a single-source service that could manage the full range of local employment criteria.

The EOR model meets a modern business need, allowing companies to quickly enter a new market and deploy workers legally and efficiently.

A key option available when expanding your business is an Employer of Record (EOR).

Why consider an EOR?

Businesses who need to hire staff overseas face a series of processes and obstacles.

Researching and complying with the numerous local laws can present a huge challenge.

Every country (and even each state or region) will likely have different employment, payroll, and work permit requirements for foreign companies doing business.

Partnering with a legal Employer of Record saves you from having to set up a formal entity in the host country. They become the in-country employer of your staff, saving you an enormous amount of time and effort.

 

How does EOR work?

Specifically, the EOR is the legal entity that:

  • Acts as a stand-in entity in order to run a local compliant payroll for your staff.
  • Meets all host country labor laws pertaining to local contracts and worker protections.
  • Advises you of required notice periods, termination rules and severance pay.
  • Is the host country interface between the employee and government authorities.
  • Is responsible for making sure you remain compliant with all local laws.

As businesses continue to navigate the global marketplace and its intricate legislations, EOR is becoming a core strategy for employing staff – whoever and wherever they may be. Want to know more about us? Contact us!

Is your Company planning to expand? Here you can find some tips to do it in the best way.

An Employer of Record regulates the relationship between the client company and the employee as a “third party” also called EOR.
It helps the employers retain, hire, payroll issues, insurance, visa applications, and other types of applications and paperwork about their employees when the employees attempt the company from another country.

Why Should Companies Use an EOR? Here some reasons: 

Expansion.

When expanding, setting up a local entity via incorporation and registration can be very time consuming and costly, needing expertise and knowledge in order to remain compliant.
A global EOR might be the better alternative, supporting the company by handling payroll, employment and immigration requirements in the host country. The EOR would be an intermediary between the client-company and assignee, helping to ensure compliance through its network and expertise.

Hiring internationally.

If you are looking to access international talent in a compliant way, an EOR can help you do just that, making sure that compliance is met and further HR-related processes run smoothly. 

Transition to remote first.

More and more employers are looking into becoming a hybrid or even remote first company, allowing not only future but also existing employees to work from anywhere in the world.
This however is a highly complex process, with many aspects that need to be taken into consideration such as each country’s labor laws as well as possible lack of experience in managing teams remotely.
With an EOR, your company will be able to give this approach a trial phase with a smaller number of employees. This would result in an easier and better prepared transition as well in important financial and time savings. 

Converting freelancers to employee.

Many companies profit from an alternative workforce such as freelancers and contractors. You might consider converting freelancers to employees because of various reasons such as a greater control over the working time, increased sense of belonging to your company and more commitment, reduced turnover rate and many more.
An EOR can help you retain this talent and support you in long term workforce planning by shouldering important transition and HR processes to remain compliant.

Emigration of an existing employee.

If one or some of your employees is considering moving permanently to another country, don’t make this a reason for letting them go. Being able to maintain your talent even if their wish to move abroad for an indefinite amount of time will not only reduce your turnover rate but can also strengthen your employer brand with increased flexibility and innovative features.
An EOR will be able to support you during the process, being in charge of the labor law, payroll differences and further aspects that need to be taken case of when wanting to remain compliant.
