In today's dynamic business landscape, companies are constantly seeking innovative solutions to streamline operations, enhance efficiency, and mitigate risks. One such solution gaining traction in South Africa is the concept of Employer of Records (EOR). 


An Employer of Records (EOR) is a professional service provider that assumes the legal responsibilities of being an employer for employees on behalf of another company or organization (client organization).  An Employer of Records acts as the official employer for these workers, handling tasks such as payroll processing, benefits administration, and ensuring compliance with labor laws and regulations.
