What are the Benefits of Expanding to Jordan with a PEO?

Legal Assistance and Compliance

Figuring out a foreign legal system and necessary HR functions can be complicated and time-consuming, and you’re more likely to make costly errors. Our legal advisors can keep you in line with every local regulation and requirement while also saving you expenses and time.

Cut Down on Unnecessary Costs

The obstacles on the road to global expansion don’t have to stop you from growing. A PEO has tailor-made solutions to meet your every need and make market entry fast and easy.

A Wide Range of Available In-Country Services

Recruitment, onboarding, contractor management, payroll, and HR services: You can have all of these and more taken care of by partnering with a single professional PEO services provider.

Enter New Markets Much Faster than Before

With traditional company incorporation, it can take up to a year to get the company set up in a new country. A PEO can have you operating smoothly in less than a week.

One Streamlined Platform for Everything

You can have access to long-term recruitment, payroll, and HR services via a single dedicated point of contact.

Why Choose a PEO Over Company Incorporation in Jordan?

While traditional company incorporation can be a reliable method of global expansion, it takes a long time due to requiring you to establish a legal branch or subsidiary of the company in the new country. With a PEO you can operate in a new market without having to set up a separate entity.

Other advantages of using a PEO include: 

  • Less time and money spent
  • Reduced company bloat
  • Connections available with local industries and talent
  • Avoid making risky mistakes

PEO And EOR: What are the Differences?

PEO and EOR are often mentioned together in a discussion of HR outsourcing. While they provide similar services, they are not the same. It’s important to understand how each one functions so that you can partner with a provider that offers the service that best suits your needs.

A PEO and EOR are both third-party organizations that provide HR services to employees of a client company. These services cover many different tasks, including payroll, tax, legal compliance, etc.

However, an EOR can also legally hire employees on behalf of the client company. As a result, an EOR is officially responsible for all the liabilities of recruiting and employing workers.

Another difference is how a contract is made between parties. In a PEO agreement, the contract is made between the client company and the employee. In an EOR agreement, however, the contract is directed by the client company but is officially between the EOR and the employee.
