Without a solution like Oyster, it’s not even worth the hassle. You just end up deciding, ‘We’re not going to hire there.’ It basically restricts you from getting access to talent. Oyster takes that all away. That’s what makes Oyster great."

What does global hiring mean?

Global hiring, or global employment, is the ability to hire, pay, and manage talent based in other countries. For example, if your business primarily operates in Canada, a global employment platform like Oyster would enable you to hire and pay contractors and full-time Team Members located in other parts of the world.
