PEO services which led to an electrifying success for a client #MercansSolves


Pandemic had put the world to a halt. During the same time, one of our multinational clients from the electronic systems sector was aiming to operate internationally despite the total shutdown.


During the Covid-19 lockdowns, the client still wanted to operate internationally.
A Recruitment drive along with other HR services became a major challenge to the internal HR team.


Mercans experts understood the requirements of the client and assisted with our PEO services.
Mercans was appointed as the PEO partner in Norway. All the senior roles were filled and candidates were mobilized. Within no time talents were hired and deployed in the required locations and managed remotely.


The support helped scale the core business and Mercans was given the contract for Tunisia and Egypt as well & recently terms are signed for a European country, too.

For PEO, recruitment, and everything in between, reach out – because #MERCANSsolves!
