Hiring in DeGermany.

While Germany ranks 22 on the list of countries with the most business-friendly regulations. However, the nation’s strict worker protections — including how to recruit and hire, what benefits to offer, and how to stay compliant — can also be challenging to navigate if you’re not well-versed in the local laws.

Compensation & Benefits in Germany.

Germany offers its employees many benefits under numerous compensation laws. Before expanding into Germany or incorporating a subsidiary, it is vital to understand what benefits are guaranteed to employees and what supplemental coverages you can offer to stay ahead of the competition.

Germany Subsidiary.

Opening a subsidiary can be a long and complicated process. Germany has complex corporate laws as well as other additional requirements that lengthen the time it takes to open a subsidiary, and omission can lead to fines or shutdown if not handled correctly.

Germany Visas & Permits.

Germany has many different visa types available, which can make it tough to choose which is best for your team members. If you’re already in the midst of global growth, it can prove difficult to focus on obtaining work visas in Germany when you’re also dealing with hiring, payroll, compensation, benefits, and more.

Germany Contractors.

As your company grows, you may hire globally to build out your enterprise. International independent contractors are an excellent resource to support various project needs. If you plan to hire contractors in Germany, you must understand how to hire this type of worker.
