Sturm International and Native Teams Success Story
Tapping into the international talent pool offers a world of opportunities for businesses, but it also brings with it a myriad of complexities, from navigating labour laws to understanding local payroll. That’s where having the right Employer of Record (EOR) partner becomes crucial.
Let’s dive into how Sturm International leveraged the expertise of Native Teams to overcome the challenges associated with international hiring successfully.
Introducing Strum International
Established in 1994, Sturm International has spent nearly three decades fostering significant business connections in regions spanning Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia. Their core mission revolves around collaborating with organisations aiming to diversify into new markets and expand their global footprint.
However, the company experienced various challenges when they started hiring employees in multiple countries.
Challenges faced by Strum International
As Sturm International expanded into new countries, they inevitably encountered growing pains. Here are some of the fundamental issues that Sturm International had to deal with:
- Local legal and admin support. Native Teams’ EOR expertise in 55+ countries enabled Strum International’s employees to have native speaking support. In addition, all the administrative and legal tasks were handled by Native Teams, allowing them to focus on the core of their business.
- Unified payment platform. Paying employees in their local currency wasn’t longer a hassle. Native Teams’ platform enabled Strum International’s employees to receive their salaries promptly and swiftly process reimbursement for business expenses.
- Slow and pricey EOR providers. While many EOR providers involve third parties, causing prolonged processes, Native Teams stood out by swiftly and affordably handling the compliant hiring and onboarding of employees. This efficiency allowed Sturm International to allocate resources for local employee benefits.
In the ever-evolving landscape of global business, the success of Sturm International serves as a testament to the critical role that EOR solutions play in achieving international expansion goals. By leveraging the EOR solutions offered by Native Teams, Sturm International not only navigated the complexities of hiring global workers but also thrived in the process.
