Hiring employees is an essential task for all companies expanding to Djibouti and beyond. Talented employees who are committed to your company will help you build a new location and free up your time to focus on forming valuable business relationships. However, it can be challenging to hire Djibouti employees while you’re also handling your payroll, managing benefits, and trying to establish a subsidiary.
Instead, Globalization Partners can hire Djibouti employees on your behalf. We’ll use our existing subsidiary to either onboard your preferred candidates or recruit top talent for you. As the Employer of Record, we’ll be responsible for Djibouti employment compliance instead of you, so you can focus your time on building your company.
How to Hire Employees in Djibouti
You need to hire your Djibouti employees using an employment contract that’s either fixed or indefinite. Fixed-term contracts cannot go past 12 months, but you can renew them once. All contracts should be written and use the employee’s local language. You can include everything from compensation to benefits to termination requirements in your employment contract, and all compensation and salary amounts should be in Djiboutian francs instead of another currency.
Djibouti Employment Compliance Laws
Djibouti’s employment compliance laws favor nationals, as companies can hire foreigners only when there are no local workers with the required skills. The National Investment Promotion Agency has a database of skilled and unskilled workers available, so it should be easy to find the individuals your company needs.
Other laws apply once you officially hire Djibouti employees. For example, employees cannot work more than 48 hours a week unless otherwise stipulated in an employment contract or collective bargaining agreement (CBA).
Onboarding Employees in This Country
Your company is free to onboard employees using a process that works best for you. That said, it’s a good idea to always review an employment contract as part of the onboarding process to make sure you and the employee are on the same page. We also recommend creating a job training program for each position you hire for. If you do, employees will feel completely confident stepping into their new roles with your business.
Djibouti Hiring Outsourcing Benefits
Many companies simply don’t have the time to hire and onboard employees while running a new company location. That’s why Globalization Partners helps with Djibouti hiring outsourcing. We’ll hire and onboard employees on your behalf using our Djibouti PEO. As a result, your employees will start working faster and have a positive hiring experience. Plus, you can feel confident that we’ll meet all Djibouti employment compliance laws on your behalf.
Another important benefit of outsourcing with a global PEO such as Globalization Partners is that you won’t have to set up your own entity. It could take months to set up your subsidiary, causing you to lose important candidates who you wanted to hire. Instead, Globalization Partners will make sure you stay compliant and save you time.
