Employer of Record (EOR) Solutions

Expanding globally is often a multifaceted and time-consuming process that requires organizations to navigate unfamiliar legal systems, tax structures, and global payroll procedures. As enterprises aim to tap into the advantages of hiring talent globally, managing and paying employees compliantly across multiple countries can become a formidable challenge. Therefore, one of the simplest ways for enterprises to swiftly enter a new market is to utilize an Employer of Record (EOR) service. An EOR partner empowers companies to legally engage with workers in a new country or region without the need to establish a separate legal entity or risk violating local laws.

Remote Work, Global Hiring Drive Explosive Growth in ‘Employer of Record’ Partnerships—Everest Group

Employers of Record (EORs) help enterprises hire and retain skilled talent in new countries or regions, use technology to provide a seamless experience to a globally distributed workforce. 


DALLAS, February 21, 2023 — Everest Group research suggests that 71% of organizations want to improve their geographical footprint; however, global expansion can be a complex and lengthy process, with organizations needing to navigate new legal systems, regulations, taxes, cultures, languages and more. Enterprises are discovering that Employer of Record (EOR) arrangements can ease the burden of international expansion; accordingly, the EOR market swelled 170% in 2020 and 120% in 2022 and is expected to continue to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 40-50% through 2025 according to Everest Group.


An Employer of Record is a third-party organization that becomes the full legal employer of a company’s workforce and assumes all employee-related responsibilities in a particular country. With an EOR, enterprises can onboard and manage talent without needing to establish a new legal entity in a particular region or risk violating local laws. EOR offerings can span the entire employee administration value chain and include services such as onboarding, benefits provision and administration, time and expense management, and payroll.  An EOR partnership is a better alternative to traditional outsourcing in that it offers higher accessibility and control over the employees, better transparency in employee practices, lowered complexity in end-to-end HR management, and shorter onboarding timelines.


“Two of the top benefits enterprises receive from EOR adoption is that they no longer have to deal with the complexity of setting up international entities nor worry about staying in compliance with local laws and regulations,” said Priyanka Mitra, vice president at Everest Group. “In addition to mitigating these risks, EOR partnerships deliver administrative cost and time savings, business continuity, and global mobility—all of which are now highly valued by enterprises striving to excel in a post-pandemic, next-normal business environment.


“Despite explosive growth in the EOR industry, it does have its fair share of challenges, not the least of which is the lack of awareness among buyers,” continued Mitra. “Large enterprise buyers are still gaining confidence in the model. Even those who are adopting the model often see it as a short-term solution, preferring to set up their own entities if they plan to remain in the territory for a long time. Other challenges include the recessionary headwinds that may slow down adoption and the ever-evolving regulations around remote work and dispersed workforces that add complexity to the space.”


Despite these challenges, EOR firms are investing significantly to enhance their technological capabilities to provide elevated stakeholder experiences and to bring efficiencies to various processes. For example, service providers interviewed by Everest Group have made investments in chatbots, advanced analytics, dynamic dashboards and benchmarking, and employee self-service and manager self-service tools. In addition, EOR firms are expanding payroll capabilities and services capabilities, such as recruitment, multi-language support, knowledge centers, and benefits offerings.


These findings and more are detailed in Everest Group’s recently published report, “Employer of Record (EOR) – State of the Market 2023.” This report offers an introduction to Employer of Record and an EOR market overview, including buyer adoption trends, the provider landscape, key investment themes and the outlook for 2022-2023.
