Hiring Your First Employees in the USA

Expanding to the USA is no small task. There are several options for expanding into the US and choosing the right one for your business is dependent on factors including your budget and your appetite for risk. 

To find out more about what life science companies should consider when expanding into the US, we interviewed Chris Pickles (Group Managing Director) and James Webb (Principal Consultant) of Invenia Group, a global executive search and talent firm specialising in the pharmaceutical, scientific and process technology and medical device and technology sectors.

"Foothold America was instrumental in helping my UK company employ field applications sales people in the US without having to set up a US subsidiary, which is the usual route for foreign companies. Foothold America facilitated this by employing the people we had chosen and handling all the employment, terms, salaries, taxes, social costs etc. They then billed us monthly for these costs plus a reasonable service charge. As a result, we were able get going very quickly with our own people in the USA and at a much lower cost base."

"I couldn’t manage our US subsidiary without Foothold America. Our small HR department isn’t equipped with the knowledge or staff to handle our US employees. I could end my workday in the UK knowing Foothold America would take care of everything in the US."

"We started US expansion on our own and soon after, we stumbled over employee benefits leaving our expat staff and families without healthcare insurance. It was a huge risk for them and our company. Foothold America came in and got us sorted. They’ve been taking care of us ever since."
