Going international is a big step for any company and there are two main routes to take for foreign expansion: use an Employer of Record (EoR) 🛂 or set up a foreign subsidiary 🏢. The financial and operational benefits of EoRs have been widely discussed. But what you might not have heard about are the strategic considerations of going the EoR route.

These are the things you should be thinking about that could have a big impact on a company’s global strategy.

Establishing a Subsidiary: The Conventional Approach with Unseen Strategic Expenses

– Market Lock-in: When a company enters a certain market through a subsidiary, it is essentially making a long-term commitment to that market. If the dynamics of the market change adversely, it may be hard for the company to get out of the market or to pivot away 🔄.

– Brand Perception: When there is a physical entity in a market, it sends signals that the company is deeply committed to that market. In some markets, that can be a helpful signal. However, this physical thing may lock the company into a specific brand, making it hard to adapt if the brand is not playing well in the market 🎭.

– Innovation Silos: Sometimes, the entities in new markets get so absorbed in the business at hand that the main company may lose touch with them. Thus, they can become inbred and isolated, unable to contribute to the main operation, the way these far-flung posts were meant to. They may also become mini power centers, somehow assuming more importance than they should 🔒.

An EoR Model Offering Flexibility and Strategic Benefits

– Testing markets in a quick and flexible way: EoR make it cheaper and lower-risk for firms to move into and experiment with new markets. And by adding more flexibility, you can use your resources where they matter most. It’s about scaling your business up and down on demand, according to your needs. And an EoR gives you instant access to a global talent pool. So your project, no matter how complex, can be staffed by the best people on the planet 🌐.

Strategic Depth: The Edge of the Reality Benefit

With their Global EoR service, companies can operate in multiple markets with ease, cost-effectively, without setting up foreign entities.

By handling the global complexities of employer and compliance, companies can focus on their core business and strategic growth initiatives, enhancing global agility, innovation, and maintaining a competitive advantage 🚀.

This service enables a business to reach a global audience and to scale rapidly on a global basis.

To sum up, when considering the choice between using EoR or creating a subsidiary, it’s important to evaluate a variety of financial and operational factors. However, don’t overlook strategic implications. EoR not only enables companies to grow globally, but also provides sure footing in foreign markets. It’s a decisive advantage in today’s business world. Using EoR makes sense for companies which aim to be proactive, coordinated, and strategic. They want to strengthen their global standing overnight, not gradually 🌟.
