Questions to ask before you choose a global employment solution including us:

What kind of hidden fees will the provider charge?
Some global employment solutions add surprises in the form of hidden costs embedded within the employee lifecycle. 

Using Multiplier, you can save 70-90% of the cost of hiring a traditional EOR. Partnering with Multiplier means you can hire full-time employees at $300 per employee per month and $40 per freelancer/contractor per month. Multiplier has a pricing structure that's simple, straightforward, and all-inclusive. All the costs will remain fixed and predictable.

Globalization Partners charges you additional fees such as country setup fees, wiring fees, per-employee setup fees, offboarding fees, and many other similar fees during the course of the employee lifecycle.
Does the platform cater to both (employee and freelancer/ contractor) employment needs?
As a growing company, it is always more reasonable to onboard a global employment partner that can help you employ both employees & freelancers/contractors. This way, you can hire, onboard & manage your employees & freelancers/contractors in one place.

Globalization Partners do not recommend freelancer/contractor hiring since their offerings do not comprise solutions for such workers. 

Multiplier offers an easy-to-use platform to manage your employees and freelancers/contractors from a single dashboard. Our contractor solutions include everything from contract generation to invoicing, payments, benefits, expense filing, and reimbursement.
Are the entities legally owned by the provider?
Some of the global employment solutions work with third-party vendors who own entities, and this can sometimes be risky and add to the complexity. 

Multiplier has its own local entities across APAC, Europe, and the Americas, with a local presence and expertise in over 150 countries. Working with owned entities can also create a better experience for you and your international workforce.
Does the provider take data security seriously? 
Your provider's data security protocols speak volumes about your employees' data safety. Always ensure your provider adheres to enterprise-class data protection policies.

Multiplier works with owned entities, and we ensure our customers' data is 100% safe with us. We are fully GDPR compliant and comply with Amazon's highest security protocols. 
Can I generate locally compliant multi-lingual contracts?
Contract generation is the first & foremost step in onboarding your new global employee. After the interview process, once you have shortlisted your candidate, you must send an employment contract before it gets too late.

With Multiplier, you can generate multi-lingual contracts that are 100% locally compliant. The best part is that you can generate these contracts in minutes, not days.

Globalization Partners does not provide locally compliant contract templates that can be sent out instantly to your new global hire.
