SkillGigs, Inc., an ecommerce talent marketplace that pairs skilled healthcare and technology job seekers with AI-matched work opportunities, today announced the launch of a new employer of record program. This new capability will make it easier for U.S. employers to hire remote international workers amid surging demand for IT professionals and the rising cost of domestic talent. SkillGigs will be the employer of record for a global pool of top tech workers, allowing employers to save money, scale quickly, and access more specific skillsets for their projects.
SkillGigs’ employer of record program mitigates many of the risks associated with offshore hiring for U.S. companies. Employers who hire international tech workers through SkillGigs can save up to 40% in talent acquisition costs while having access to total talent management services that track and document project milestones.
The SkillGigs employer of record program for technology workers is a service the platform offers in addition to their international travel nurse program for healthcare companies.
