The Difference Between a PEO and an EOR

Understanding how these two service types function is essential before choosing one to utilize in Iran.

  • A PEO is a third-party company that provides HR services to employees of other companies
  • An EOR does this, too, but it can also legally hire and is responsible for the employees of other companies
  • The contract is made in a PEO agreement between the PEO provider and the client company
  • With an EOR agreement, the contract is directed by the client company but officially made between provider and employee

Regardless of which one suits you better, INS Global offers both PEO and global EOR services in Iran.
