As a business expands internationally, it becomes increasingly important to have a Human Resource Information System (HRIS) that can support a global employee experience. In this blog post, we will be discussing the key features to look for in a global HRIS and some of the top vendors that offer these features.

Companies are more likely to be multi-national than ever before. However, global companies are struggling to deliver HR software services to their global employees. Most companies are still using US-centric platforms that cannot support their non-US regions well.

Here's what to look for in a global HRIS and some vendors to consider:

Global Employee Experience

The ability to provide a localized experience for each employee is crucial for a global HRIS. This includes support for local currencies, languages, and holidays. A system that feels truly catered to the employee's region and location will lead to higher employee satisfaction and engagement.

Global Support

When it comes to customer support, it's important to ensure that it's available around the globe. Support centers should be located in different regions to ensure that they understand the nuances of each region. The support team should also be able to answer questions about compliance and labor laws for each region.

Global Employment

A global HRIS should be able to support multiple types of employment across every region. This includes the ability to hire contractors through the system, administer employment contracts, and pay their invoices. The system should also be able to support the hiring of full-time employees in regions where the company has entities set-up. It should also have the capability to accurately pay taxes and file paperwork. Additionally, the system should have an employer of record (EOR) or Professional Employers Organization (PEO) offering to make hires in regions where the company does not have entities set-up.
