Benefit management in Belarus

While Belarusians do receive many state benefits, employers still regularly choose to offer things like private health insurance, extra vacation leave, and so on. Setting up a benefits system for your employees in Belarus is an important part of being an employer and expanding into the country. However, it can be difficult if you are not familiar with the country’s complex labor laws, languages, and administrative procedures.

Horizons can help you bypass this element of your Belarus expansion by offering benefit system outsourcing that can save you time and money. Our experts will advise you on the best course of action and take care of your benefit setup and management, helping you focus on the rest of your expansion.

A Belarus PEO and a Belarus EOR are two types of companies which specialize in providing human resources services to businesses in Belarus.

The main difference between a Belarus PEO and a Belarus EOR is in the scope of their services.

Belarus PEOs provide a full range of HR services, including payroll, benefits administration, and employee recruiting—all under one roof as a co-employer. Engaging a Belarus PEO is essentially outsourcing your HR duties in Belarus.

Belarus EORs actually take over as the legal employer of your employees based abroad. Belarus EORs become responsible for labor compliance for your employees in Belarus.

At Horizons, we offer both PEO and EOR services in Belarus. Get in touch now and let us know what service you are seeking.

A PEO in Belarus can feasibly hire both local and foreign nationals to work in Belarus.

However, the ability of Horizons to sponsor your foreign national employee in Belarus may be limited due to visa quotas practiced in many countries.

Contact us with your requirements and our Global Mobility team with review the case and get back to you within 2 business days.

In most cases, Horizons’ Belarus PEO can hire & onboard your employee within 24 hours. The actual start date of the employee will depend on their notice period obligation to their previous employer as well as any relevant hiring rules in Belarus.

It is possible to get a work visa in Belarus. Horizons’ Global Mobility team is a dedicated team of work visa experts. They assess the details of each case to determine feasibility and costs before Horizons applies for the work visa on behalf of your employee. If the Global Mobility team determines that your case is feasible, the process is smooth and transparent. Visa spots in Belarus are limited, however—get started today to secure your employees’ visa spot.
