Employer of Record

What does a global PEO do?

Expanding into one or two countries is achievable by most organizations. But expanding into different countries at the same time is complex and challenging. Your organization is expected to juggle multiple country-specific employment laws while avoiding misclassifying your workers and managing the complexities of international payroll.

Due to the challenging global expansion processes, many organizations lose valuable time and resources. Therefore, the best solution is to outsource some of these functions, where a global PEO (professional employer organization) comes in.

A global PEO is an entity that organizations hire or partner with to enable international hiring. The global PEO performs similar functions as an Employer of Record by enabling these organizations to hire and onboard contractors and employees, manage payroll, and ensure compliance with the different country-specific employment laws and tax regulations. When your organization partners with a global PEO, they act as the legal employer of your workers, thereby taking all legal risks and requirements.

So, what does a global PEO do for global organizations? Here are eight functions of a global PEO to help you make informed decisions when choosing a global PEO partner
