Quote from Luis

The Hotelbeds Group (HBG) based in Spain continues to grow rapidly since the breakaway from the TUI Travel company. The company has recently (Autumn 2017) acquired Tourico and GTA. These companies have now become part of HBG and so Compandben will now be serving these companies as well as the original Hotel Beds Group. HBG is growing and Compandben is a key player in the company’s HR Operating model. HBG provides a wide range of travel services and is regarded not only as a leading player in the market but also as at the cutting edge of the online travel industry. A global company, HBG has smaller operations in many locations and formed a partnership with Compandben and its network for Employer of Record services in many countries including Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland , Hungary, Ireland, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and  Ukraine. Compandben  provides support services from one to many employees per country.

Compandben is also our key partner in UK for payroll processing for several hundred staff, handling relations with HRMC, (the UK government tax and social security authority) paying the employees and the various authorities, and providing HR support..

The relationship started in 2015 and currently with 15 countries operational in Europe with Compandben, we have just started implementation of services in the Asia Pacific region and Africa.
