Find out how employer of record raises your employee experience.

Employees are a fundamental factor for the success of your company. How to guarantee a good experience? here some ideas:

 

1. Focus on the employee experience

The best customer experiences start with the best employee experiences. This has meant focusing on the core principles of simplicity, transparency and personalization. It also means acknowledging one size does not fit all.
Continually working to improve the employee experience is also a big lever in future-proofing and protecting the world-class culture which is the foundation of our business.

2. Get clear on your employer brand

Building a great culture starts with attracting and recruiting diverse talent, and then developing that talent throughout their career.

3. Invest in your people

Building internal talent pipelines is core to our performance, and our talent development approach and programmes reflect the varying needs of our diverse workforce.

4. Build a high performance culture

Having a strong performance management culture in place is critical to ensuring you get the very best out of employees, and they get the very best out of your organisation – it’s a two-way street. However, it’s not only about what is being achieved, there should also be a focus on how outcomes are reached – including being a team player, stepping up to challenges, operating with a customer focus and being accountable and responsible.

5. Actively promote diversity and inclusion

Diverse and inclusive organisations are better for business. It’s a no-brainer. But it’s not enough to set up employee networks and leave it at that. Really successful organisations lead from the top when it comes to diversity and inclusion. This includes building cultural fluency in leaders, and placing a diversity lens across all aspects of our business to ensure we’re accurately reflecting our wider community.

6. Connect employees to your company purpose

Employees have a strong desire to connect with company strategy and purpose and understand how their own role plays a part in helping our business to be successful.

7. Look to the future

Change really is the only constant, so it’s important we don’t rest on our laurels when it comes to attracting and retaining great talent.

8. Things clear, handle your legal obligations

When hiring an employee, there are a variety of legal requirements you must meet to comply with federal and state labor laws. It is essential that everything is legal and clear so that your employees feel comfortable and who can fully represent the spirit of our company.

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.

As we have already told you, there are many advantages that our proposal has over another when it comes to hire an employer. Today, we give you 2 more reasons to choose us.

Last but not least, we give you 2 more reason to choose us.

TERMINATION & EMPLOYMENT LAWS

Local Entity
It is important to understand local employment law when terminating an employee or you risk legal action. Every country has its own regulations for termination, notice period and severance payment, so it’s vital to follow the regulations and stay compliant.

EOR
An EOR keeps you informed of the process and ensures a lawful termination

LANGUAGE & CULTURAL KNOWLEDGE

Local Entity
When you create a new entity, you may be unaware of all the local language and cultural factors, which can lead to misunderstandings and cause tensions.
Often, you’ll need to hire cultural advisors and translators to ensure a smooth process, which is difficult when all local documentation needs to be compliant with local
regulations and available in local dialects too.

EOR
With an EOR, you receive help from a Country Expert who explains cultural clashes and language differences in English. This way you avoid any cultural or language issues.

An EOR hires the employees in the new country under its local business entity and takes on all of the legal risk. As the legal employer the

EOR is responsible for:
• Visa, immigration and work permits
• Country compliant payroll and taxes
• Advice on cultural and language awareness
• Adhering to local labour laws
• Advice on required notice periods and termination rules

For many organizations and companies, the prospect of expansión can be overwhelming. Creating a new local entity in an unfamiliar country is frequently a long, stressful and costly process without any guarantee of success. Therefore, many businesses choose to delay before they finally step forward globally, but these delays hand your competitors first-mover advantage. More and more businesses are taking advantage of Employer of Record services to take these initial global steps first.

Last week we told you 3 advantages that our proposal has over another when it comes to hire an employer. Today, we give you 3 more reasons to choose us.

There are many variables to look at when choosing a way of expanding your company. Last week we explore 3 variables, here we explore 3 more:

BANK ACCOUNT

It’s often a legal requirement to have a local bank account to pay employees when creating a new local entity. Banks typically require a director to physically visit a branch to open the account and deposit a large sum of money to meet local capital requirements. With and EOR a local bank account is not needed so there are no capital requirements and no issues with currency conversion and foreign exchange rates.

TAX LIABILITY

Creating a local entity leads to tax liabilities such as:

  • Income tax
  • Business tax
  • Profit tax
  • VAT

With an EOR, you avoid the burden of dealing with employee and corporate tax liabilities.

COMPLIANCE

Each country has a host of laws, which can change abruptly, and as these regulations are mandatory you will need to remain ahead of the changes. Whether it’s data protection or tax and employment laws, your business will need to comply with the latest requirements or face criminal penalties

When you use an EOR, you are not responsible for remaining informed about the ever-changing regulations. The EOR keeps you informed and ensures that you are legally compliant locally.
