Recent post-pandemic studies have shown that there is an increase in remote working jobs and virtual teams in the tech industry across the globe. The main reasons for this is the need for a wider talent pool and the eagerness to enter and operate in new markets. With the advancement in technology, it is now easier for companies to work with employees who are located in different parts of the world. Nevertheless, entering new markets, hiring a global workforce and managing them has its risks, increased costs and legal complexities. Employer of record (EOR) service is a boon for small as well as large businesses seeking to grow their talent pool quickly and expand into new markets safely and compliantly without breaking their bank.

What is EOR ?

An Employer of Record (EOR) is a service that provides businesses with a turnkey solution to hire and manage their remote workforce. EOR allows employers to outsource the Human resource, administrative, legal and compliance aspects of hiring and managing remote employees, while still maintaining control over their workflow and day-to-day job related activities. EOR services provide a convenient and cost-effective solution for businesses looking to expand to cut through bureaucracy and explore the potential of foreign markets and talent.

The EOR acts as the legal employer of the remote employees, assuming responsibility for Payroll, benefits, and compliance. This allows employers to easily hire employees in different countries without the need to establish a legal entity in those locations.
