Employer of Record (EOR) service is a great alternative to H-1B and other work visas during these uncertain times!
Have you been waiting endlessly for your work visas to be approved? Is the the talent shortage in the USA and the cost or complexity of bringing new staff in from overseas on visas stopping you from filling your critical needs?
There is a solution that many US employers have found by using our global employer of record service to act as an H-1B visa alternative.
Many fast-growing start-ups that depend on highly skilled engineering teams have addressed talent concerns by hiring in emerging tech markets outside of the U.S. and Silicon Valley, such as Toronto, Tel-Aviv or Warsaw, etc. Taking a global approach to staffing has allowed these organizations to keep projects moving forward, even during times of geopolitical risk.
Any organization seeking to hire skilled employees for specific roles should consider a more agile approach to employment as their H-1B visa alternative. Hiring workers in their home countries—rather than bringing them to the U.S. through specialized visa programs—has proven to be a strategic opportunity for employers.
How a global employer of record can act as an H-1B visa alternative:
