Ensuring a Smooth Employee Transition: Seamlessly Switching Between EOR and Payroll Vendors
Switching from one Employer of Record (EOR) vendor to another or your local payroll can be smooth if all stakeholders – the client, EOR, payroll vendor, and employee – are aligned in understanding and managing potential impacts. The primary consideration during this transition is ensuring minimal employee disruption. Here are critical steps to an easy transition experience:
EOR to EOR transition
Streamlining Off-boarding and Resignation from previous Employer of Record vendor
Seamless Onboarding with the New Employer of Record
Employer of Record to Payroll Transition
Streamlined Off-boarding for Local Payroll Integration
Once you’ve completed all the necessary registrations to initiate your local payroll operations, engaging with your local payroll service provider is time to kickstart the implementation process.
