Foothold America is laser-focused on the intricacies of US hiring and employment regulations. With deep experience navigating the nuances of US HR, payroll, benefits, and compliance, we ensure a smooth and compliant experience for your US team.

This can lead to a less comprehensive understanding of specific US requirements, potentially causing delays or errors in your US expansion.

Full-Spectrum HR Support vs. Basic Assistance

Foothold America goes beyond the basics of HR support. We don’t just handle routine tasks; we act as your dedicated HR partner, guiding you through the complexities of US employment law. Our services encompass a wide range of HR needs, including HR Policy Development, Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) Consultations, Guidance on challenging HR employment situations & more.

While Remote.com might offer general HR guidance, their support appears tiered. Features like in-depth consultations, navigating complex situations, and even Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) support seem reserved for their higher-paying “Enterprise” customers only. This leaves smaller businesses potentially vulnerable during critical HR moments when such specialized assistance is crucial.

Our team of in-house experts boasts direct access to major carriers. We’ll not only consult with your 401(k) administrator but also make personalized benefit contribution recommendations tailored to your specific needs. This ensures a comprehensive and compliant plan that empowers your US team with the right benefits package. In contrast, Remote.com’s approach to employee benefits appears less integrated. Their services may not include dedicated contacts, in-house expertise, or personalized recommendations. This could leave you managing multiple relationships and navigating complex insurance issues on your own, which can be a significant burden.
