What is an Employer of Record?

An Employer of Record serves as the crucial link to achieving a successful international expansion. We function as a third-party organization, taking on the responsibility of being the legal employer for your workforce. This entails assuming control over all matters related to employment. Ranging from payroll processing and tax compliance to benefits administration and beyond, at PikoHANA, we stand as your committed partner. This partnership enables you to concentrate on your fundamental business objectives without distraction.

How Does the PikoHANA EOR Model Work?

Client Company Operations

As a business seeking additional staff for international operations, you may face challenges such as complex labor laws.

Worker or Employee?

The individuals providing services to your company become employees of PikoHANA, not your organization.

Employer of Record (EOR)

PikoHANA specializes in being the legal employer for your international workforce.

Contractual Agreement

By establishing a clear, detailed contractual agreement that outlines responsibilities and terms.

Employee Administration

The EOR takes care of administrative tasks related to employees, including payroll processing, tax withholding, benefits administration, and compliance with labor laws.

Human Resources Support

The EOR provides human resources support, including managing employee onboarding, offboarding, performance reviews, and handling HR-related inquiries.

Benefits Management

The EOR may offer access to a range of employee benefits, like health insurance, retirement plans, and others, often at a group rate that might be more cost-effective.

Compliance and Legal Matters

The EOR ensures that the client company remains compliant with local labor laws, employment regulations, and tax requirements.


By transferring the legal employer responsibilities to the EOR, the client company can potentially reduce its exposure to certain employment-related risks, such as legal disputes.

Geographic Expansion

EOR services can be valuable for companies looking to expand into new geographic regions or countries, as the EOR handles the complexities of local employment laws.


EOR services can be beneficial for companies with a contingent or temporary workforce, as it allows them to manage these workers without assuming the full employer responsibilities.
