Global Employer of Record in Slovakia

What Is a Global Employer of Record?

A Global Employer of Record is a third-party employment solution that provides international employers with the legal and compliance protections they need to reduce risks associated with employment. This model allows businesses to focus on their objectives while outsourcing employment functions. With a Global Employer of Record, you can remain the actual employer and concentrate on your business objectives. The model is flexible, with terms based on the number of employees. There are no limits to project duration or employee number.

Hiring employees in other countries can be a complicated and time-consuming process. But with Global Employer of Record, things have become much easier. This new talent engagement model provides employers with a single point of contact for all their foreign employment needs, making it simpler to comply with local labour laws and streamline HR processes in Slovakia.
