PEO (Professional Employment Organization) in Finland

In Finland, hiring and managing employees can be a complicated and time-consuming task. That’s why partnering with a reliable PEO (Professional Employment Organization) is crucial for businesses looking to expand their operations in the country. A PEO like GTS Nordic can assist you in navigating the complexities of Danish labor laws and regulations, handling compliance, and ensuring that your HR practices are in line with local legal requirements. There is a difference between a PEO and an EOR, but technically GTS Nordic can be considered both and offers services within.

EOR Solution vs PEO

Although often used interchangeably, there is a difference between an EOR solution and a Professional Employment Organization (PEO). With a PEO, your company’s employees are on your payroll, and you are responsible for handling all HR-related issues. An EOR partner, on the other hand, acts as the legal employer of your workers, handling payroll, benefits, taxes, and other administrative tasks on your behalf.
