What you need to know to be a top employer, no matter where you grow

Looking up local salaries isn’t enough when considering global expansion. To know how your global payroll will be impacted by growth to a particular country, it’s important to know the local labor laws. To be a top employer, it’s equally important to know the customary benefits th employees in each country expect to receive.
That is where Papaya can help. We provide growing companies with the best local solution in every country, helping you position yourself as a top employer both in the eyes of the local labor law enforcement and in the eyes of the local workforce.


Depending on where you want to expand, you may need to add on almost 50% to an employee's salary for insurance. In France for example, old age insurance is mandatory, yet accidents at work insurance is not; knowing what you need to cover as an employer can help you organize and manage your budget, ensuring you grow the right way.


Pension matters no matter where you want to grow – you may need to take into account an additional 28.8% for pension in some countries like Brazil, or a standard amount in other places like Denmark.


While no one wants to think about the day they might need disability, disability payment is something employers need to keep in mind – especially when undergoing global expansion. Papaya can help you understand the local laws regarding short and long term disability and how they impact your overall payroll and global growth.

Complying with local labor laws is important, however to position yourself as a top employer, you need to know what customary benefits are in each country.
