EOR (Employer of Record) vs PEO (Professional Employer Organization) in Denmark, Sweden, and Finland

When it comes to managing consultants and temporary workers, it’s important to have a clear understanding of the roles played by an Employer of Record (EOR) and a Professional Employer Organization (PEO). In Denmark, Sweden, and Finland, both EOR and PEO services are crucial for ensuring compliance, managing payroll, and supporting workforce expansion.

Notable companies that offer comprehensive solutions for consultants and temporary workers in need of both an EOR and a PEO are companies such as GTS Nordic, Deel, Skuad, OysterHR and more.

Employer of Record (EOR) Explained

As an EOR, GTS Nordic takes on the legal responsibility of being the employer for consultants and temporary workers. This means that we handle tasks such as payroll, benefits administration, compliance with labor laws, and tax obligations. By serving as the official employer, GTS Nordic ensures that all legal requirements are met, allowing consultants and temporary workers to focus on their assignments without administrative burdens.

Professional Employer Organization (PEO) Explained

On the other hand, also being a PEO, GTS Nordic offers a broader range of services beyond being an employer. In addition to assuming the legal responsibilities, a PEO also provides human resources support, employee benefits, training programs, and risk management solutions. PEOs act as strategic partners, assisting businesses with their HR needs and helping them navigate the complexities of workforce management. We also have extensive events for consultants based on social gatherings and cultural experiences.
