Who We Are

We make international employment simple. We are a Global Employment Organization with years of expertise to help you manage and employ your international employees. The crux of our services is the ability to assist clients in new markets where they do not have an incorporated entity. Corporate staff can be hired quickly and at a reasonable cost, while we handle all aspects of local employment and payroll requirements.

We know that international employment can be overwhelming. Every month we’re managing hundreds of employees in over 50 countries.

Shield GEO acts as the employer of record and can manage the complex administrative and legal processes that are unavoidable in a new country. We manage the core administrative services necessary to operate an office and employ staff, while the client corporation handles the day-to-day employee and business tasks.
