How is a
ZenLar different from temporary staffing and engineer
Clients and ZenLar become partners and co-managers of
the client's offshore Ukraine based engineering team.
Co-management involves all or a significant number of
the client's existing worksite engineers in the Ukraine.
ZenLar brings services to the client, including the
management of human resources, engineering benefits,
payroll and team building activities. In most cases,
ZenLar assumes responsibility for private entrepreneur
tax, benefit plans and other human resource activities.
ZenLar can provide health insurance, onsite lunches, and
other critical engineer benefits for their worksite
engineers. If a relationship with ZenLar is terminated,
the co-engineers will cease to work for the ZenLar but
will continue to work as engineers for the client.
By comparison, a leasing or staffing service supplies
new workers on a temporary or project-specific basis.
These leased engineers return to the staffing service
for re-assignment after completion of their work with
the client company. Some would define engineer leasing
as a supplemental, temporary private entrepreneur
management arrangement where one or more workers are
assigned to a customer for a fixed period of time, often
for a specific project. This concept creates little
long-term equity or investment between the worker and
How does a Private
Entrepreneur Outsourcing (PEO)
Once a client company contracts with ZenLar, we will
then contract the client's Ukraine based worksite
engineers. In the arrangement between ZenLar, a worksite
engineer and a client company, there exists a co-private
entrepreneur management relationship in which both
ZenLar and the client company have a private
entrepreneur relationship with the worker. ZenLar and
the client company share and allocate responsibilities.
ZenLar assumes much of the responsibility and liability
for the business of private entrepreneur management,
such as risk management, human resource management,
payroll and private entrepreneur tax compliance,
intellectual property transfer and general office
management. The client company retains responsibility
for and manages on-site management, product development
and production, business operations, marketing, sales
and service. ZenLar and the client will share certain
responsibilities for private entrepreneur management law
compliance. As a co-manager, ZenLar will often provide a
complete human resource and benefit package for Ukraine
based worksite engineers.
Who can benefit from ZenLar?
Almost any business with offshore operations in the
Ukraine can find value in a relationship with ZenLar.
Increasingly, US and European based businesses find
value in a ZenLar relationship, because ZenLar offers
expertise in IT management and Ukrainian HR and
facilities management. ZenLar can partner with companies
that have between 10 and 500 or more Ukrainian engineers
and work in conjunction with their existing human
Many different types of businesses ranging from large
software development companies and small start-ups, can
benefit from ZenLar services.
What makes ZenLar different
from other PEOs?
ZenLar is unique in the Private
Entrepreneur Outsourcing industry for several reasons.
The company's management team is based in Kiev, Ukraine
rather often times the US. ZenLar's comprehensive
service offering and its customized and personal service
delivery model ensure each client maximizes engineering
potential and profitability. Additionally, and perhaps
most importantly, ZenLar is rapid response time to
issues and change uniquely differentiates it from US or
European based PEOs.
Will I lose control of my
Ukraine operation by using ZenLar?
No. As our client, you retain control over product
development, and bonus allocations. As co-managers,
ZenLar and our clients contractually share or allocate
management responsibilities. ZenLar will generally only
assume responsibilities and liabilities associated
office administration, payroll, taxes, benefits,
worksite safety and compliance. You continue to have
responsibility for engineering planning, development and
QA management. ZenLar will be responsible for payroll
and private entrepreneur tax, will maintain engineer
records and reserves a right (not the right) to hire and
fire (a right that would only be exercised if the client
management decision broke a law or otherwise jeopardized
the business or workplace).
How will my engineers be
affected by a relationship with ZenLar?
Most engineers desire the environment of smaller
operations; however, the realities of increasing
healthcare costs, incentive benefits keep good engineers
with a larger operation. The "big company" human
resource practices and benefit plans ZenLar provides for
its clients help to attract and retain these engineers.
How much will ZenLar's
services cost me?
ZenLar will conduct a detailed analysis of your current
costs and prepare an assessment of ZenLar cost
advantages. Depending on average salaries, IT equipment
and office space requirements, ZenLar administrative
fees generally range between 10 – 25% of gross costs.
However, in most cases, the reduction in administration
and insurance costs will offset all or most of the
ZenLar administrative fee. And remember the value of the
time you save by relying upon ZenLar.
