What does hiring abroad without Panther look like?
Hiring abroad typically requires building or buying a local branch, registering it as a subsidiary of your headquarters, filing for local bank accounts, keeping up to date with changing local labor laws and collective bargaining rights, and contracting local payroll, accounting, legal, and HR personnel. This process takes months if you're lucky, a year if you're not, and restarts in every country you hire from.
Panther acts as the employer-of-record on your behalf, eliminating the need for a local subsidiary. Our local legal experts take over the heavy lifting and save you tens of thousands of dollars.
