Remote Staff adds a minimal fee on top of the contractor’s hourly rate and both Remote Staff and the contracted staff earn an income only when working. This means Remote Staff and the contracted staff don’t get paid if they don’t work. These fees are fixed and on a scalable approach, not based on percentage formulas but on the type of staff acquired. With more cost-effective positions Remote Staff’s margins are less, but for specialized positions our fees are higher. This is mostly because these kinds of talents take so much more time and effort to attract and recruit.
Remote Staff offers two payment methods. First payment method is the regular monthly invoicing system, this is issued at the start of every month based on a 22 working day calendar and is based on a monthly balance accounts system. The second is the PrePaid billing system, in both systems the first month's invoices is paid in advance, but after the first months invoice with the PrePaid billing system clients are able to fully manage their credit any way they like, with account balances happening daily.
By hiring a free agent directly, you're paying an hourly rate that is similar to the hourly rates offered by Remote Staff but you would be losing out on all the added benefits, services and security that come with hiring staff from Remote Staff. All Remote Staff contractors are paid fairly as per the Philippine labor and compensation laws. However, we make sure that staff wages are never inflated, which is what some online job seekers do when there is the prospect of working with international employers.
Making the decision to hire staff through Remote Staff is much like an insurance policy that is designed to save you time by making the recruitment processes as easy as possible. We also provide you peace of mind with the virtual safety zone solution we have in place, as well as our office presence in Manila and the home visits we do with the contracted staff. Combining these things with the added customer support team acting as a trusted mediator helps you and your staff focus on the work and achieving the results you seek.
