Benefits of Using a PEO during a Crisis Like COVID-19

The PEO services are time-tested solutions and have immense values and benefits in during the crisis:

1. Fulfill Your Staffing and Recruitment Need

Your staffing needs can always be met with a PEO. During a difficult time like this, you may encounter higher turnover or recruitment freeze but you will still have to keep up with your production demand.

Hence, a PEO can ensure fast and efficient workforce solutions so that there isn’t any downtime and you can come out much stronger from any crisis than your competitors.

A PEO also takes away all your burdens concerning payroll processing, on-boarding compliance, employee visa application, and other HR-related functions.

2. Conform to Legislation and Manage Compliance

Commonly, laws and regulations, government measures and employment terms and conditions change rapidly and constantly during a crisis. As a result, many employers find themselves confused and frustrated trying to keep pace with the overwhelming changes.

These changes not only will affect how your business will operate continuously, but it will also challenge your company’s ability and capacity to conform to the new and amended laws.

Violation of these laws is not something you want for your business as it will bring forth detrimental consequences such as loss of reputation, penalty, and even business shutdown.

An Indonesian PEO has a team of professional HR specialists in-house to help you remain completely in control of changing regulations during a crisis. Plus, you will have more internal resources to take care of things that matter to your business most.

3. Take Care of Immigration Process

Visa applications and immigration processes have always been complex matters for businesses to handle if you don’t have the right tools. They become even more challenging during a crisis like COVID-19 due to the stricter travel regulations in the whole world.

Therefore, you will need to have full preparation for a higher-standard immigration process, as well as deep knowledge and the latest information to ensure a successful visa application.

With an Indonesian PEO, you can hire both local and foreign talent without the hassle of keeping up with the latest regulation updates and going through a complex procedure.
