Virtual Hiring Success Story  

COVID-19 has impacted virtually all businesses. For one our of our clients, a considerable number of contractors were laid-off, furloughed or had their assignments permanently terminated. Through our creative solutioning and our commitment to helping employ as may people as possible, our team created a sophisticated system to track and onboard the contingent workforce the business needed, resulting in putting 120 contractors back to work.

is our payroll / employer of record program a fit for you?

We custom-design employer of record programs to your needs - whether that means on-boarding five workers or 500. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to help decide if Populus Group is the right partner for you:

Are you confident that every worker you’re hiring is being on-boarded through a consistent, people-first approach?
Do you worry about staying in compliance with employment laws and new legislation?
Is one of your goals to save time and money while also capturing diversity spend?

Did you quietly (or not-so quietly) nod your head yes to any of these questions?
