How to Use Employer of Record to Recruit Indonesian Talent
When looking to expand your business, you could consider hiring abroad. Indonesia has an abundance of new talent that you may be interested in – this is when you could consider using an Employer of Record (EoR) service to broaden your hiring pool.
An EoR service provider bears the legal responsibility for managing a company’s employees – giving them more time to focus on other aspects of their business. Their responsibilities include but are not limited to recruitment, payroll, and work permits.
While the Employer of Record service provider legally holds employment contracts, your company would still have autonomy in terms of day-to-day operations. Your company will still make all the final decisions in business strategies as well as employee management and supervision.
Using an EoR Service in Practice
There are a variety of circumstances when expanding your business abroad where having an EoR service provider would be especially helpful. Here are some situations where an EoR service provider would be worth considering if you are:
1. Looking for a more efficient way to enter the Indonesian market
Establishing a foreign-owned business in Indonesia costs a lot of time and money. With a minimum paid-up capital of IDR 10 billion and a timeframe upwards of 6 weeks, it may not be worth the risk.
If you use an EoR service, they would already have a registered business that will swiftly aid you in the hiring and recruitment process. This is especially useful if you need to expand your workforce in Indonesia quickly when there is higher demand in your business.
2. Not wanting to worry about the legal responsibilities of hiring
EoR service providers in your target country are always up to date about labor laws and policies that are constantly changing. While also ensuring your employment affairs are compliant with Indonesian law, they will also consistently ensure all your payroll-related activities are handled.
Your EoR service provider is legally the employer of those you decide to recruit, and they bear complete responsibility for your operations in their country – this mitigates a significant amount of risk for your company when hiring in Indonesia.
3. Looking for a simpler recruitment process
It can become tedious when it comes to recruiting new employees, and using an EoR service can significantly simplify the process. You can outsource some HR responsibilities to your EoR service provider, and they’ll handle the recruitment process from start to finish.
