We navigate complex international hiring, so you don’t have to

The adoption of remote work has accelerated faster than many would have imagined. According to Gartner, 51 percent of knowledge workers will be remote by 2022.

Enabling a globally distributed workforce is no longer a nice-to-have – it’s an expectation that’s critical to both retain your existing people and hire top talent too.

Traditionally, HR teams have been limited to hiring in locations where the business already has a legal entity. Remote changes that. With our modern platform for global employment, HR and people teams can focus on talent acquisition and employee experience rather than becoming experts in international tax and labor laws.

OWNED LOCAL ENTITIES

Local entities for greater control

Remote never uses third-party providers, so we own the direct relationship with the employee and the employer. This means we can offer more transparency, more expertise, and more flexibility in the locations we serve.

Not all global employment solutions providers are created equal. Some own legal entities in the countries where they operate, while others rely on partner networks to do the heavy lifting. To help illustrate which model is better for your business, we have put together this helpful guide.

24/7 SUPPORT

We’re always here to help

Remote’s local HR experts are on-hand to help you around employment challenges. Whether it’s providing one-off recognition bonuses and promotions, or navigating disciplinary procedures, you can contact our team for speedy support.
