Employee of Records

International employment services

As part of our comprehensive suite of services to UMB, International Operations (IO) is proud to offer a gateway to global employment solutions through the management of Employer of Record (EOR) services. The service is designed to simplify and streamline the process of employing individuals across the globe. At IO, we understand the complexities of international staffing and are committed to providing seamless, efficient solutions.

What is an Employer of Record?

An EOR is a third-party professional employment organization that is registered to do business in a foreign country and can therefore legally employ personnel in that country on behalf of the client organization, taking on the responsibilities of contract administration, payroll processing, employer-side tax payments, mandatory payroll tax withholdings and remittances, statutory benefits management, and labor law compliance.

Why Choose EOR Services?

UMB as a state organization is restricted from hiring employees who are based outside the US. IO through MGIC is well-positioned to facilitate the hiring of international employees. MGIC has established a strategic partnership with EORs across various countries.

IO’s Role in Facilitating International Hire

IO plays a pivotal role in coordinating the engagement with EORs thus ensuring UMB can access the global talent while remaining in full compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.

How IO Partners with EOR

Here is how we facilitate this process:

  1. Assessment and Planning
    IO works closely with UMB departments to understand their specific needs and the roles they are looking to fill internationally.
  2. Selection of EOR
    Based on the geographical location and specific requirements, IO selects the most suitable EOR partner from our network, ensuring they align with our standards for compliance, reliability, and ethical employment practices.
  3. Onboarding and Management
    IO coordinates with the selected EOR to ensure a smooth onboarding process for the new hires and manages the ongoing administrative and compliance aspects of their employment.
  4. Support and Advisory
    IO provides continuous support to the employees ensuring that any challenges are promptly addressed and that the employment relationship remains beneficial for all parties involved.
