Global hiring solutions for growing SMEs
Global hiring is often an attractive proposition for growing SMEs. Hiring overseas can be useful for selling products and services into new markets and accessing a cost-effective and qualified workforce.
Horizons is a Global Professional Employer Organization (Global PEO) which means it is able to recruit and hire staff across all your overseas locations. The employees hired by Horizons still work exclusively at your direction, but the Global PEO becomes the ‘Employer of Record’: That means Horizons takes over payroll, tax withholding and HR compliance on your behalf.
Engaging Horizons to support your global hiring via a Global PEO solution has a range of benefits which we set out below.
Setting up a subsidiary for your new international outpost usually takes time. With a Global PEO solution you can be up-and-running within 48 hours.
Horizons can take responsibility for all your international locations if you seek to operate across several countries. You only deal with the one invoice and point of contact.
Busy SMEs do not need to worry about recruitment in the country of hiring. Horizons, with its in-house recruitment specialists, can recruit top talent for you through its extensive local networks.
It is estimated that expanding through a Global PEO could save you 85 percent on the normal cost of expanding globally.
All Staff information is managed through a cloud solution that gives you access to worker data in real time.
Horizons will engage your SME on terms that both parties agree to.
Horizons will get to work recruiting staff for the SME’s new overseas location.
If the SME agree to the chosen recruits, compliant employment contracts are arranged and staff hired.
From that point on Horizons is the ‘Employer of Record’ and provides ongoing payroll, tax and HR administration services.
