What’s an EOR?

An Employer of Record or EOR acts as a go-between for businesses to allow them to hire globally. An EOR is essentially a third party that handles all HR and Payroll for the employee offering access to real-time applications that show them all of their personal work-related documents such as contracts, annual leave entitlement, benefits and more.

It means that businesses no longer need to set up shop in the country they want to hire in, they simply ask an EOR to hire the employee for them directly. In essence, the company handles all of your workload and people management, while the EOR ensures you receive all of the benefits due to you including making sure you get paid on time!

Work anywhere in the world with TopSource Worldwide

With remote working a new reality, you can literally base yourself anywhere in the world and get paid on time in your local currency. No need to relocate or gain visas – the world is literally at your fingertips. EORs work in various time zones so can onboard you from anywhere and offer practical portals to help you manage all of your HR and payroll needs, no matter what time of day it is.

Get paid benefits

While most contractors don’t get paid holiday, maternity, sickness or access to health insurance (the list goes on!) working for an EOR means you are directly employed so you’re entitled to all of those benefits relative to the country you are working from. You’ll get a proper contract that’s compliant with local labour laws.

Financial security and flexibility

You’ll be employed directly with a reliable source of income in the currency of your choice, all of the freedom of remote working and none of the worry of contracts coming to an end. Working for an EOR gives you the best of both worlds – flexibility and a steady income.
