Are remote workers not an option? I'm based in the UK, work for a US  
company, visit four times a year for at least two weeks at a time -  
not sure what any upper limit on that would be. That seems to be  
enough to keep us in sync. Might not work for your case but we're a  
fairly small startup-like team.

And if you could make that work for a year then presumably they'd get  
a visa on the basis of having worked in your foreign office for a year?
