What's the Difference Between a PEO and an EOR in Qatar?

These two services are often mentioned together, but they are not exactly the same. It’s essential to understand their functions and how they relate to you before choosing which one best meets your expectations.

  • A PEO is a third-party company that offers HR services to employees of other companies.
  • An EOR provides this as well while also legally hiring and being responsible for the employees of other companies.
  • In a PEO agreement, the contract is made between the PEO provider and the client company.
  • In an EOR agreement, the contract is directed by the client company but officially remains between the provider and the employee.

Whichever one suits your company’s needs better, INS Global is there for you. We offer both PEO and global EOR services in Qatar so that you can have the best services for all of your requirements.
