Using our EOR services in the UAE allows you to access the opportunities of the Emirati market within days while we take care of the paperwork for hiring your workforce compliantly. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has a multinational population, with only 10% of around 10 million inhabitants being Emiratis. Expatriate workers explore a rapidly diversifying economy which has moved away from being labour-intensive and relying on vast amounts of oil and gas, which account for 10% and 20% of global reserves, respectively. Renewable, hydrocarbons and green energy development, telecommunications, tourism and hospitality and advanced technologies have come to the fore. The Emirates has been ranked in the top 30 globally for business services to multinationals. The World Economic Forum ranked the UAE in the top 30 for ‘most networked’ nations, ahead of all other Arab countries, Italy, Turkey and India.
But each new market brings new challenges. These can be worked through efficiently and cost-effectively with the support of an international Professional Employer Organisation (PEO) such as Bradford Jacobs, primarily through our Employer of Record (EOR) framework. This can be best utilised when businesses are just beginning their expansion process and require more information before incorporating an entity and fully establishing themselves in that market.
Our EOR services in the UAE offer our global entity network to companies considering expansion. We become your international employees’ Employer of Record, meaning that we take full responsibility for your employees’:
As an Employer Of Record, we conclude an agreement with you and the employee who will be working for your company. We become the legal employer of your new workforce. Your company maintains control over your employees’ working relationships, work ethics, tasks, and daily responsibilities.
Our agency in the Emirates will legally hire your selected employees while you are responsible for their day-to-day activities. We currently operate in over a hundred countries where we use local networks of experts, which allows us to gain expert knowledge of local laws and regulations and recruitment customs and trends. By partnering with us as an EOR, your company will also have access to this specialist knowledge.
Our contract with your employee is 100% compliant with Emirati labour laws and includes benefits such as insurance and pensions. We can hire, onboard, and manage your new employees in the UAE within days. Here is what we can do for you:
The most significant benefit of using our EOR services in the UAE is probably that there is then no necessity for you to set up an entity there. This process can take months, and during this period, it is unlikely that you will have legal resources to pay your employees in the Emirates, resulting in a considerable delay in your Global Expansion plans.
Global expansion is an exciting step that often leads to a growing and successful business, but the red tape in a new country can be demotivating and frustrating. Imagine a way to expand your business without red tape globally and at low costs: that is what working with an EOR can do for you. By letting us take care of the hard part, you can focus on the significant part: expanding your business into the UAE.
These are the aspects we can take away from you:
As an employer, you are usually responsible for all legal aspects regarding your employees’ employment. In a new country, this process will probably take some more effort, but it does not have to. We have extensive experience with Emirati payroll, taxes, and other local laws and regulations at Bradford Jacobs.
We can help you with the following:
Employees are the central core of your business. They keep the engine running; therefore, creating a stable agreement that satisfies both employer and employee is essential. As a legal employer, the EOR is responsible for keeping employees happy with the work agreement. Due to our broad network and experts, we can offer employees great benefits and a reliable, compliant employment contract.
We will make sure they enjoy the following:
Working with contractors on a project – or temporary basis can provide an excellent solution during your global expansion. At Bradford Jacobs, we have access to a vast pool of international contractors and can find you the perfect fit for your project or expansion. Since it is not allowed for a contractor to work full-time for you solely, we can always set up an EOR when necessary, providing you with a swift solution for your international workforce.
Feel free to share your plans and dreams with us so that we can find the perfect solution and provide a compliant working agreement that suits everyone.
