Traditional methods of establishing global employment and subsidiaries in Netherlands 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 Netherlands 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 Netherlands.
  • Omnipresent hires the selected candidate through our local professional employment organisation in Netherlands.
  • 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 Netherlands.
  • 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.

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. In some cases, contribution maximums will lead to payments earlier in the year being larger, before being reduced once max is hit. If a 13th and 14th month are applicable, these have been pro-rated into the gross salaries.
