Without a solution like Oyster, it’s not even worth the hassle. You just end up deciding, ‘We’re not going to hire there.’ It basically restricts you from getting access to talent. Oyster takes that all away. That’s what makes Oyster great.

We've used Oyster to hire and onboard employees in 10 different countries and we would not have been able to grow that quickly without Oyster.

Once all of the paperwork is done,
each step is so well described and so well documented that you know what's next. The onboarding couldn't be quicker. It's incredible.
