GEO solution offers organizations the ability to hire employees from anywhere in the world and expand globally, with or without in-country entities
Austin, Texas—Safeguard Global, a global workforce management solutions company, is bringing their global employer of record solution to the Dutch market. By establishing offices in the Netherlands, the company brings in-country expertise in global hiring to empower local HR leaders to easily and compliantly hire top talent from anywhere in the world.
"The past few years not only proved a global labor market is valuable to all companies, if they are willing to change how they recruit,” said Bjorn Reynolds, founder and CEO of Safeguard Global. “But it also brought about a time of great competition for the best talent. In our experience, Dutch companies understand how powerful that global marketplace can be, and we wanted to be in-country to better support them as they expand into new markets for talent and new business opportunities.”
With a full suite of solutions backed by technology, local expertise and service, Safeguard Global can help established and emerging global companies recruit, hire, pay and manage their workforce, and analyze workforce data, anywhere in the world. All of this can be done without establishing an in-country entity, and remaining compliant with local employment laws.
Through GEO, clients can engage Safeguard Global as the global employer of record, facilitating hiring in more than 170 international markets, in as little as two weeks. With GEO, organizations can:
- Hire in new countries, whether that be one person or a team
- Pay employees in local currency
- Remain in compliance with all local laws and regulations
- Gain support from local market experts to guide HR through any challenges working with a global workforce
By entering the Dutch market, Safeguard Global brings in-country expertise to local companies seeking to hire or expand internationally. Their solutions allow HR teams to be smarter and more efficient, from recruitment and employment contracts to people analytics and workforce management.
"Many organizations already do business across national borders. As consumers, we order things from time to time that come from another country. But when it comes to workforce management, it's more complicated,” said Lars Rademaker, country manager for the Netherlands at Safeguard Global. "When you want to hire talent from another country, you have to remain compliant with tax and employment laws, you need local market knowledge. Many organizations therefore neglect recruiting across borders and taking advantage of the talents in an international workforce, which is a missed opportunity. A shift is needed in that line of thinking: the labor market is not a local market; it is a global market. And it doesn't have to be complex."
