Hiring international team members often requires owning a legal entity and navigating local labour laws – but CC Pines knew there was a better way.
During COVID-19, one of CC Pines’ valued employees moved back home to South America. Rather than letting them go, the company used it as an opportunity to try working with employees in other countries – and it was a success. As a result of this experience, when CC Pines decided it was ready to scale its capacity and capability, they were willing (and interested) to hire globally. More specifically, they wanted to hire in the Philippines.
However, hiring international talent often comes with complexities, ranging from navigating international payroll and taxes to ensuring compliance with local labour laws, so the company knew it wanted to use an EOR to bridge the gap. They decided to test the EOR waters by reaching out to Outstaffer for help hiring a Mechanical engineer.
"We tried for many months to hire Mechanical Engineers in Australia. However, we could not find the right talent to meet our requirements...[Since starting with Outstaffer], we have hired design engineers who are highly skilled and hardworking - in fact, they do not hesitate to put in long hours (if required). This has allowed us to focus on our strategic initiatives - working on the business"

Outstaffer was able to find them the talent they needed and took on all the HR hiring burdens, handling legal compliance and mitigating the administrative complexities of global employment. They not only found a Mechanical Engineer but have since helped them find and legally hire several design engineers to help them scale.

While growing global teams can be complex, CC Pines has developed a strategy for their team in the Philippines to work alongside their Sydney team
“While we are increasing our staff numbers, we did not want to lose the small company culture and flexibility…We are happy with the recruitment process, customer onboarding and support we get from Outstaffer,” said Parnerka
They plan to add even more positions with Outstaffer and continue sourcing talent from the Philippines because the region has “strong talent with intelligence, technical skills and work ethic.”
The convenient time cross-over has also enabled CC Pines to extend their working days from eight hours to eleven.
