The Swedish team currently consists of 16 people.
Sweden has a record skills shortage
Now the company has carried out a survey among Swedish companies, among other things to take the pace on how they approach recruiting abroad to solve the talent shortage. A large part of the companies can imagine recruiting abroad, but it is perceived as difficult. 56 percent of the participants in the survey have experienced or worry about difficulties in employment abroad. Among the roles that companies have the most difficulty filling are, for example, IT developers, a flexible role that can be performed remotely. – Swedish startups have problems hiring at the rate they are growing. In the long run, it threatens Sweden’s growth. By handing over all complicated paperwork and local labor law to us, the companies can focus on their growth and look away from a Swedish labor market where it can be tough to find the right skills.

Remote work makes it difficult
35 percent of the companies in Deel’s survey state that remote work makes collaboration more difficult. The company’s idea is to offer tools and know-how for an organization to be able to recruit and take care of workforce remotely. With Deel, the HR department can streamline workflows, request and approve leave, carry out employee induction, manage meetings, and much more. – Using us gives employers the opportunity to focus solely on finding the right skills without taking geography into account. A modern labor market does not care about borders. But teams spread across the world create new challenges, says Daniel Eisenberg. The company also ensures that local labor laws are complied with and administers salaries. In the future, they believe that even more companies will use their services. – There has been enormous interest since the launch.
