A leading US-based test administration company specializing in providing comprehensive testing solutions for academics and professionals faced the challenge of optimizing their service operations to increase efficiency while reducing costs. They recognised the need to establish an offshore team to handle certain operational tasks, but were concerned about the expenses and complexities associated with setting up a legal entity in a foreign country.
The Company made a strategic decision to establish a 15 member offshore team in India using vBridge Hub’s Offshore EOR (Employer-of-Record) services. vBridge Hub assisted in sourcing candidates from the market through job portals and targeted sourcing. Candidates were pre-screened by vBridge Hub’s panel of experts based on pre-agreed screening criteria with the hiring manager. The Company only interviewed screened candidates thus improving their turn around time and conversion rates significantly.
For candidates selected by the Company through the interview process, vBridge Hub platform facilitated the onboarding process through releasing an offer letter, gathering onboarding documentation, getting background verification completed and ensuring seamless onboarding for the candidates. The hired team works in a remote model with laptops and accessories that were procured and provided by vBridge Hub based on Company’s standard specification.
vBridge Hub manages the payroll, benefits, expense reimbursements, leave and compliance administration for all the candidates.
