Making global HR simple.

Managing HR is no easy task when taking

your business overseas. Not only are there

language barriers and different currencies

to take into consideration, but compliance

with local legislation is also a top priority. If

this isn’t taken into account, businesses are

at serious risk of:

  • Expensive fines and tax penalties
  • Costly and lengthy lawsuits
  • Reputational damage
  • Devaluation of your business and its stocks
  • …and even the closure of your overseas business.

Fortunately, IRIS FMP works as an extension of your team and ensures you avoid all of this, thanks to our international expertise and breadth of far-reaching local specialists. We’ll save you time, money and effort, with a complete, scalable HR solution that grows with you as you expand into new territories. We’ll help you manage your global workforce, and compliantly onboard employees to reduce their time to value.

Complexities of international HR include:

  • Country-compliant employment contracts
  • Offer letters
  • Policies & handbooks
  • Discipline
  • Performance management
  • Employee termination
  • Compliance with regional laws and expectations 

Our international HR services.

From compliance with local laws to building and utilizing new cultural knowledge, we’ll help accelerate your business’ success overseas. We will draft documentation on your behalf and provide expert support when you need it. We can help with:
