Weigh your options

We know you’ve got other hiring options, and we want you to know why a holistic approach is the best fit to scale your company. Terminal supports customer hiring goals by optimizing our products and services based on your feedback and needs.

Browse the competing options below to see how we measure up in market. We don’t mind.

Employer of Record (EOR)

An EOR is an organization that legally employs a worker on behalf of another company.

EORs are a good solution for:
  • Hiring international talent legally
  • Starting global hiring without a delay
EORs aren’t a great solution for:
  • Providing sufficient benefits
  • Managing global employees
Most EORs ignore a company's primary problem - finding the talent. Terminal's holistic approach includes recruitment and vetting and saves clients up to 45% on hiring costs without sacrificing quality.

Recruiting Process Outsourcing (RPO)

A RPO is an organization that specializes in handling the tasks related to sourcing and hiring candidates for other companies.

RPOs a good solution for:
  • Saving time on HR tasks
  • Getting support filling hard-to-find roles
RPOs aren’t a great solution for:
  • Decreasing recruiting time
  • Recruiting elite international candidates
Terminal provides holistic support with a 40% faster time-to-hire than the industry average. We specialize in recruiting elite, international candidates, accepting only the top 5% of applicants.

Professional Employer Organization (PEO)

A PEO is an organization that handles employment-related HR services on behalf of another company.

PEOs are a good solution for:
  • Scaling your HR team
  • Simplifying hiring in multiple locations
PEOs aren’t a great solution for:
  • Global recruiting support
  • Limiting your global legal risk
Terminal provides full HR support to your business including sourcing and hiring expert, global engineer talent through our legal entities in every country where we hire. This saves customers 80 days on average so your focus is on growth instead of legal red tape.

Recruitment Agency

A recruitment agency is an organization that provides talent sourcing and recruitment services.

Recruitment agencies a good solution for:
  • Increasing recruiting and vetting speed
  • Finding specialized candidates
Recruitment agencies aren’t great solution for:
  • Globalizing your talent pool
  • Increasing retention rates
Terminal hires are pre-vetted experts that stay on the job 3x longer than the industry average, saving money in recruiting and new hiring costs. Agencies simply can't offer Terminal's global pool of fully dedicated, full-time rock stars.

Do-It-Yourself (DIY)

Companies who opt to handle their own international hiring take on the broadest range of activities, from sourcing candidates all the way to offboarding.

DIY is a good solution for:
  • Having total control of the process
  • Developing market expertise
DIY isn’t a great solution for:
  • Being proactive to market changes
  • Limiting administrative costs
Terminal enables customers to hire engineering teams faster with affordable costs, full process control and technology-amplified expert guidance, without the $1M+ global set-up costs.

Software Development Shops (Dev Shops)

A dev shop is an organization that companies hire to outsource anything from website creation to improving existing mobile apps to tech support.

Dev shops a good solution for:
  • Increasing development speed
  • Finding specialized candidates for project work
Dev shops aren’t a great solution for:
  • Finding fully motivated, 100% dedicated engineers
  • Providing consistent quality results
Beyond providing top-quality hires and transparent pricing, Terminal helps reduce rehiring costs (often over $30K per hire) by getting the perfect candidate the first time using our proprietary, smart matching technology and world-class experts.

Talent Platforms

A talent platform is an online marketplace where engineers promote their skills, and companies can post open roles or new projects to hire engineers.

Talent platforms are a good solution for:
  • Hiring low-cost workers
  • Finding short-term contract help
Talent platforms aren’t a great solution for:
  • Hiring full-time engineers
  • Global HR & legal support
Terminal enables customers to hire full-time engineering teams backed by our HR and L&D support. We supply engineers dedicated to your business growth objectives, saving you time and money in the process.

Employer of Record (EOR)

An EOR is an organization that legally employs a worker on behalf of another company.

EORs are a good solution for:
  • Hiring international talent legally
  • Starting global hiring without a delay
EORs aren’t a great solution for:
  • Providing sufficient benefits
  • Managing global employees
Most EORs ignore a company's primary problem - finding the talent. Terminal's holistic approach includes recruitment and vetting and saves clients up to 45% on hiring costs without sacrificing quality.
