Staffing solutions for SMEs in Hungary

Convenient and affordable recruitment, payroll and HR services for your small or medium-size business

The success of your business depends greatly on the people who work with you – but startups and small businesses often lack the resources to find, select, and retain the best employees. On top of this, as a foreign business owner, it can be difficult to understand the local process of recruiting, hiring and taking proper care of your staff, ensuring that you can get the best people possible for a motivating yet affordable salary, and that your operations are compliant with labor law and other regulations.

At Helpers, we specialize in finding cost-effective and professional solutions for foreign-owned small and medium-size businesses, ensuring seamless operation and minimizing business risk.

Cost-effective recruitment

Helpers offers highly competitive, flat rates for the recruitment and hire of new staff – for significantly less than most recruitment firms, we will advise you on formulating the position and setting the optimal salary, take care of advertising, screen and interview candidates, and include a professionally drafted labor contract in the package! If you are already our client, you will additionally benefit from working with an account manager who understands your personal and business goals, and can provide you with tailor-made advice and support.

Ongoing HR support and payroll administration

By using our complex business services, from registered office through accounting, business planning, recruitment and office search, you can ensure that your resources are optimized and there are no costly and inconvenient detours. Once you have hired your first staff member, we will take care of all ongoing administration and HR support, to make sure that your company is always fully compliant and an attractive workplace for talented candidates with great potential from day one.

Naturally, we will be with you from wording your job post to negotiating, drafting and signing the labor contract. We will also brief you on the basics of Hungarian labor law, so you know what your rights and obligations are. If your accounting is also done by Helpers, our bookkeepers will also prepare payroll every month, and calculate all wage and tax cost for you before you make the hire, to avoid any surprises.

This is a typical problem faced by our clients. Do not worry, however, we have a range of solutions for you. First of all, we can choose an office solution for you where your employee will have support and infrastructure when starting to work for you. Secondly, we often provide regular supervision by our own staff (or by our management if necessary) to ensure that your team, however small, will perform at top capacity and meet your expectations.

The answer greatly depends on the type of position you are looking to fill. For example, we have been known to find an English-speaking personal assistant or company administrator in just a day or two. Through our extensive network, we are often able to locate a suitable employee in a very short period of time. However, if you are looking for someone more specialized or the required expertise is in high demand on the market, lead times can be significantly longer – in such situations, we are often able to find you a temporary solution while we search.
