Onboard talent in a matter of minutes: Onboarding is a crucial and risky fare. Gallup found that 88% of employees feel companies do not provide an engaging onboarding experience. Gallup also reported that employees are 2.6x times likely to stay with the company on account of good onboarding.
When onboarding talent cross-border, employers must care for many issues such as compliance, language barriers and employment contracts. A global HR management software enables you to onboard employees compliantly in minutes.
Multiplier has automated all processes starting from employing talent to generating employment contracts for your new hire to a paltry six clicks.
One-click payroll: Paying global teams demands meticulous attention. Even seasoned finance and payroll teams can recollect horrific memories of payment related errors. Sending salaries to the wrong bank accounts and failing to account for currency conversion charges is only the tip of the payroll horror iceberg.
Multiplier’s one click global HR and payroll solution makes international payments mind-numbingly simple. With our Employer of Record, you can pay employees in their local currency.
Multi-lingual contracts: One of the biggest hassles of global hiring is generating clear and compliant employment contracts. When building and managing global teams, you have two options to deal with this - consult experts or partner with a global HR solution.
Countries like India, USA, China provide the world with several hundred million skilled laborers. However, hiring is not easy here. All these countries have varying laws at the federal level and state-level. In China, payroll varies with the city!
Acquiring expert help every time you enter a new country is not feasible. A global HR provider like Multiplier can help.
Our SaaS -based global employment platform helps you generate compliant employment contracts in seconds. Our 1000+ local experts stay abreast of changing local labor and payroll laws thus ensuring every employment contract is compliant with the rules of the land. Our global HR experts turn every complex foreign turf into a friendly playground.
Invoices: The most preferred method to tap foreign talent is by sourcing contractors and freelancers. However, several employers face struggles while paying them. If a global payroll solution can save them, tracking their expenses using spreadsheets and managing invoices is a literal headache.
Multiplier’s users are provided a single monthly invoice for all their global employees.
Timesheets & Expenses: A global HR management software should feature tracking features as well. With employees from varying time zones, tracking work times and expenses using traditional spreadsheets would be counterproductive.
Multiplier’s global HR platform features a timesheet tracking feature to manage your global workforce from a single window. The expense tracking feature tracks the expense requests raised by your teams as well.
How is Global HR services relatable to PEO services
International HR outsourcing and partnering with a Professional Employer Organization have their differences.
A global HR outsourcing company facilitates employers by sharing a specific responsibility. Contrastingly, a PEO acts as a co-employer. The latter offloads entire HR responsibilities such as payroll, onboarding and benefits from your business.
In the view of global HR, both organizations manage HR administrative tasks and reduce your costs related to global employment, onboarding and benefits.
The only difference between the two parties is their level of involvement. HR outsourcing companies help as a global HR company by offloading a specific HR task.
However, a PEO helps you offload the entire international HR process and tasks to them, while you focus on growth-related activities.
For instance, a Professional Employer Organization provides the following benefits administrative services:
- Negotiations with carriers
- Employee enrollment
- Legal notifications
- COBRA administration

How can International HR outsourcing Reduce Costs?
Managing global HR is expensive and complicated. However, that hasn’t deterred any company from expanding rapidly and with confidence. A company that needs to scale, with the right partners, scales effectively.
Managing international HR in-house is associated with a lot of costs and expenses. To paint a picture, the cost of hiring a graduate HR amounts to more than $54,000 annually.
Imagine the cost of hiring a seasoned expert with a can-do attitude and expertise to vouch for your global HR and operations needs.
Moreover, hiring such seasoned professionals takes time - you may lose out on opportunity costs while looking for the right fit.
This is why even the entrenched companies seek an international HR partner. The money they save on salaries, benefits packages and physical workspace simply by having less in-house.
Another key benefit to outsourcing is the flexibility to choose short or long-term arrangements, which allows your company to grow its way into new markets—without a large upfront investment in HR.
