Global Staffing and PEO


Global Staffing and PEO

Entity setup isn’t your only option.

Traditionally, establishing or expanding a presence overseas requires that a company be established as a corporation, find local talent, and then navigate local regulations and other aspects of operations. However, in some situations, this approach is slow, costly or may not offer the advantages needed for a company to realize its objectives in Asia. Fortunately, there are other options.

Global Staffing Solutions (GSS) is a suite of services which can help a company to recruit, hire, and manage full-time employees across Asia, whether or not it has its own local company established. GSS consists of three main services:

  • PEO (Professional Employer Organization), helps companies to onboard staff in Asia - in full compliance with local laws - and without the investment required to set up and operate an overseas legal entity;
  • Recruitment, enables companies to easily find the local or expatriate talent that they may be seeking for their presence in Asia;
  • Global Mobility, provides optional support for expatriate staff to obtain visas, work permits, and other travel and relocation related services, to help companies to meet their changing international needs.

Whether the next step in your market entry plan is research and development, the delivery of initial projects, or an immediate formal company setup - it is time to consider Professional Employer Organization (“PEO”) services.

PEO centers on a core service of offshore hiring, which is the onboarding of a worker in an overseas market and the management of their employment. This includes their salary payments, reimbursements, leave, and regulatory employee declarations, as well as compliance issues.

This approach helps put feet on the ground quickly. You receive the benefits of having an employee overseas without the investment costs or hassle normally associated with setting up a company. This also helps to side-step the need to manage complex foreign regulatory employment matters.

As a strategy, this allows a company to test market entry into one or more Asian countries, and then retain the option to easily scale back, switch to a different country, or upon proven success in the market, to proceed in establishing a formal presence.

PEO is easy to get into, which means that you need a highly competent partner that you can trust to see it through.

To help companies along their entry path, we also provide supporting and adjacent services. As required, we can help you to find the right talent with our professional recruitment services, or provide placement support, onshore or offshore training, local immigration support, and other services.

When it is time to change your plan, we can help you scale, shift, or expand to other markets. We can also help with Business Intelligence advice regarding country comparison and location selection. If it becomes viable to set up operations overseas, our corporate establishment experts and back-office outsourcing services will help your strategy advance to the next level.
