Are PEOs and EORs the Same?

While the two services are similar, they are not identical. It’s important that you know the differences before choosing which one to partner with your company.

  • A PEO is a third-party company that offers HR services to employees of other companies.
  • An EOR provides the same services as a PEO while also legally hiring and being fully responsible for employees of other companies.
  • With 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 is officially made between the provider and the employee.

Whichever one suits your needs best, INS Global offers both PEO and global EOR services in Turkey, allowing you the fullest range of services available.
