How to Choose the Right Employer of Record Partner for Your Business

10 years ago, hardly anyone knew what an Employer of Record was. Any business that was looking to use such a service was more likely searching for an EOR who can help, than searching for several for the purpose of comparison. In 2023, some estimate that there are as many as a thousand Employer of Record services available in the market. And that means figuring out which is the right one for you is a potential minefield!

In this webinar we will discuss the importance of making the right choice and suggest the various criteria best used to identify the right type of Employer of Record for your business. We’ll give you the things you need to know about your own company and plans, before you narrow down your potential EOR partners.

The webinar will cover;
  • The relevance of geographies.
  • How important are your employees?
  • The role of technology in EOR.
  • Owned entities versus partners – the big debate.
  • The biography of the EOR.
  • Factoring in price.

Sam Barnes is an international employment professional and co-founder of the Employer of Record service, Agility EOR. With over a decade of experience in global hiring, Sam now lends his expertise to ensuring businesses can quickly and compliantly engage talent in countries all around the world. 
Describing the recent growth in the Employer of Record sector, Sam observes a bifurcation in the market. “We’re seeing those who view what we do as sell a commodity, on the one hand, and those who believe we sell a service on the other”. Whilst acknowledging there may well be room for both approaches to be successful, Sam puts Agility firmly in the service camp. “We provide a service which is enabled by technology”, he summarises. “Although our platform makes us easy to work with, it is the personable way in which we share our knowledge, and the care we give to each client, which sets us apart from our competitors”. 
When he’s not helping clients to complete their next international hire, Sam can often be found on a tennis court, pursuing his passion for fly fishing or simply spending quality time with his wife and children.
