What Can I Expect from a Global HR Solutions Partner?

Global HR Solutions (Global WFM) enable businesses to be compliant, competitive, expand into new markets easily and attract and retain top global talent.

Typically, a Global HR Solutions partner will be an expert in local employment and taxation rules and regulations across the globe, enabling them to onboard your new hires simply and with due diligence and the highest level of service to reflect your company values in their candidate journey.

You will need a partner with expertise in Employer of Record (EOR) services for employees and Agent of Record (AOR) services for self-employed, freelance workers, to look at the risks for individual cases and the best way to mitigate these for the client.

Compliant onboarding includes right to work, Anti Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) checks, contracting (and benefits if employed) and proof of tax registration / self-employed certification for Self Employed workers.

Companies don’t always know where their remote workers are based, and tax liability is complex, as workers can be liable for tax in one country and tax domiciled in another.

Onboarding new workers, with the right partner who has local expert knowledge and experience, should be very speedy – within a matter of days or as soon as the talent can get their documents sent across.

Reliable and legally complaint payroll, from an experienced provider with expert knowledge and experience of how international banks operate, is key to ensuring workers are paid on time, every time.

With the right partner, offboarding is also simple for employers and workers alike, whether you transition staff to your new entity or otherwise.

 

Global HR Solutions removes the headache of complex onboarding and payroll and provides assurance of legal compliance across the complex international landscape of people management, for which you, as a company, are legally responsible.

The good news is that Global HR Solutions are cost effective so can be utilised as a mid to long-term solution if required (although you get what you pay for of course.)

 

How Do I Find a Reliable Global HR Solutions Partner?

There are a wide range of providers on the market providing quite different services so it’s important to be sure you select the right provider.

Here are our top tips for finding the right Partner for you:

    • Check what services they cover, do they have experience in all the crucial areas everything you need from assuring legal, onboarding and tax compliance, timely payments, and global workforce management.
    • Does the geographic area they specialise in, include the countries in which you operate? HR laws and compliance requirements are complex and can differ vastly in each country. Local legislation changes frequently – how do they keep up to date?

Example: If you are recruiting staff or contractors in Germany, your workforce management agency needs an AUG licence. You need a partner that specialises in the countries in which you operate. At Project Global we have a global network of experts so that we can provide assurance to our clients of their legal compliance giving complete peace of mind.

    • How are their charges structured? Check for additional charges or hidden costs. These can often be found for instance in exchange rates. Get full transparency so that you know your total costs.
    • Are you planning to pay staff and contractors as freelancers or employees? Is this compliant with the local laws of the country the individuals are based in?
    • How regularly and accurately will your staff or contractors be paid? What currency are they paid in? Delayed or unreliable payments lead to discontented teams. It’s not worth the risk. Make sure your agency is reliable, trustworthy, and efficient.
