What does global employment mean?
Global employment, or international employment, is the ability to employ, pay, and manage talent based in other countries. For example, if your business primarily operates in Canada, a global employment platform would enable your teams to hire and pay contractors and full-time Team Members located in other parts of the world.
What’s a PEO?
A professional employer organization (PEO) describes an organization that co-employs its customers’ employees. A PEO can help manage the logistics of employing across multiple jurisdictions including payroll, benefits, and tax.
How is globalization affecting domestic employment?
Globalization has varying impacts on domestic employment depending on the specific state, country, and industry. Removing the barriers to hiring and expanding global employment opportunities, however, can have positive impacts on global communities and talent from emerging economies.
Do employees need a visa to be employed in another country?
Depending on the country, employees often need a visa or other type of authorization to work in another country. Ensuring that someone is legally authorized to work in the country is a part of Oyster’s standard checks and procedures conducted during the hiring and onboarding process.
