How do Omnipresent Global Employment Solutions Work?

Omnipresent provides global employment solutions and professional employment organisation (PEO) services for companies looking to grow and build out a global team in Australia. Traditional methods of establishing global employment and subsidiaries in Australia typically take months and can incur heavy costs. Omnipresent's global employment solutions and PEO services is helping hundreds of organisations onboard new employees in Australia in a matter of days with full compliance of local labour laws. We use a tech-forward approach to streamline the process.

  • Your company conducts the hiring and candidate selection process in Australia.
  • Omnipresent hires the selected candidate through our local professional employment organisation in Australia.
  • We take care of ensuring your new employee is hired in compliance with local labour laws, payroll regulations, benefits and more -- all without needing to set up a subsidiary in Australia.
  • The individual is legally contracted by Omnipresent but assigned to work for your company and reports to a manager or team in your organisation as your full-time employee.

Partnering with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO), or Employer of Record (EOR), is often more effective, faster and less risky.

They are only a ballpark estimate, and the actual figure may be above or below the quoted amount based on a number of variables. These estimates represent a monthly average each year.
