Payroll in Colombia.

Colombia is known for the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta as well as the Andes range and the capital, Bogota. Although it is a growing area to do business, Colombia employment laws strongly favor employees. When you establish Colombia payroll, you’ll need to have a strong understanding of these laws before you hire employees, add them to the payroll, and start operating your subsidiary.

Hiring in CoColombia.

Employers need to put together a strong team in Colombia to establish a company. However, recruiting and employing employees in Colombia also means meeting all employment laws to stay compliant. Here are a few things employers need to know about the employee hiring process.

Compensation & Benefits in Colombia.

Compensation and benefits management in Colombia can be complex without the right preparation and local expertise. Employers are required to give employees several standard benefits. Other supplementary benefits are not mandated by law but are expected by employees and can attract top candidates to your open positions. You can choose to learn the regulations related to Colombia benefits management on your own, or you can work with an Employer of Record (EOR) like G-P to stay compliant and save valuable time and resources.
