Business is becoming increasingly specialised. As the world develops layers of new rules are added to existing ones, laws are expanded and updated. New technologies have created new ways of working we would not have dreamed of being possible even ten years ago.
With these changes the depth of knowledge required to run a business has exponentially increased. In the 70’s if you were a plumber you would list your services in the phone book, sign write your van, hand out some business cards and wait for the phone to ring. Now on top of those things you need a website, a Google listing, a Facebook page, LinkedIn maybe? Instagram? The phone – well that will be a mobile, and of course, you will be emailing quotes and getting business in via email. Don’t forget you may use a consolidator website to get your leads from too.
All that just to change a tap!
It’s not therefore surprising that businesses now exist to help you manage all those things, social media consultants, IT support, telecoms companies etc.
Globalisation is no different. As a business you would not take a DIY approach to your telecoms. No-one in their right mind would sit down and create their own mobile network and handsets for their own plumbing business. So why would you try and do it yourself when it comes to expanding internationally?
Believe it or not people still try. They take the CEO’s plan for world domination and run off to Google to try to find accountants, lawyers, payroll providers, bank accounts, GDPR specialists and all manner of other disparate suppliers in some far flung country before gleefully telling the CEO it’s all sorted – they just need to fly out Mongolia for a week to sign the paperwork with the bank in person. Simple eh?
Why? Why? Why? It's madness! We work with some of the best lawyers, accountants, payrollers and finance providers in the globe. We have tried and tested our partners time and time again and they deliver.
We know that at times you need to go into an Argentine bank in person and show signed (wet ink) employment contracts of your employees so they will pay your team the money they have been sitting on for a week. We know that in Italy your have four different employment classes that give massively differing rights to your employees and have a financial impact to you as a client. We know that you have to pay your employees in Belgium Eco vouchers once a year so they can upgrade their lightbulbs!
We know all this because we are experts. We know this because it is our business to know all there is to know about global employment. And we know that when clients try to do it themselves it, more often than not, goes horribly wrong.
So please help us to help you. Use an expert, use us.
Drop us a line to and let us take the pain away, reduce your costs and save you time with your global hiring needs.
