Nearshoring employees without opening an entity

Horizons offers the best nearshoring experience available

What is nearshoring?

Nearshoring is when companies hire foreign employees in a neighboring country. For example, a soft drinks company in Germany might nearshore its bottling operations to Poland. 

There are several reasons why company might want to nearshore a portion of their workforce:

  • To save on costs
  • To keep the whole company on a similar time zone (compare this with ‘offshoring’ to a more distant location, which can come with large time differences for the team)
  • To hire some specialists located in a neighboring country
  • To diversify the workforce and encourage innovation through diversity, while still keeping some cultural alignment for the team.

Why nearshore?

Why is nearshoring employees so compelling? Consider the following ways in which global hire may appeal to a company:

Source qualified staff

There are well-recognized skill shortages in many developed countries, especially when it comes to technology and senior management roles. Nearshoring can help fill those skills gaps while keeping operations in the same timezone.

Use multiple languages

For many international businesses, their clientele are themselves international. This means that it can be important to have staff that speak internationally important languages such as Mandarin or Spanish. Hiring overseas is the most straightforward way of achieving a team with these capabilities.


Having employees in a nearby location makes the business more resilient against any issues that affect the home office exclusively.


Hiring in a nearby country with a lower cost-of-living can save your company money.
