Global Employer of Record / EOR in Uzbekistan

Global employment services

Businesses in the process of expanding globally often face challenges when it comes to compliantly onboarding employees in foreign countries. In most cases, legal compliance requires the establishment of a legal in-country business entity, a complex, costly and time-consuming process that many employers are not ready to undertake.

To help your organization legally onboard and payroll a workforce in Uzbekistan, Acumen International offers a global employment solution via our Global Employer of Record (EOR) designed to help you circumvent the legalities of direct hiring, eliminating the need for you to establish a legal entity in Uzbekistan in order to conduct business there.
