Do you know how to recruit and hire Guinea employees? If not, you have to take the time to learn all of Guinea’s employment compliance laws, find talented candidates to fit your positions, then figure out how to onboard them. That’s all on top of running your subsidiary and your parent company back at home.

G-P will give you the confidence that you’re staying compliant and the time to run your company through Guinea hiring outsourcing. We’re a global PEO and can hire employees to work for your team. We’ll also act as the Employer of Record to shoulder all compliance instead of you.

Recruiting in Guinea

Your staffing and recruiting efforts will primarily focus on local talent, as there are not many opportunities for expats. If you hire a nonresident, they will need to apply for a resident permit, which could take a year to obtain. Application requirements also depend on the individual’s nationality, but everyone will need two passport photos and a passport valid for at least six more months. Employees who enter the country using a short-term visa may not be able to apply for a resident permit, so it’s important to follow the right steps and obtain the correct documents.

Conakry, Guinea’s capital and largest city, has the most people looking for a job, and many will contact international companies directly even if there is no opening. If your company is expanding to Guinea, consider designating an employee who is available to answer cold calls and emails.

Another option is to post your job openings on well-known recruitment sites such as Career Jet and Trovit. Other common job posting websites for expats include:

  • Michael Page
  • Overseas Jobs
  • Go Abroad
  • LinkedIn

Laws Against Discrimination in Guinea

There are more men than women in the workplace, making it important to hire women and create a diverse workforce when staffing your business. Guinea currently has laws that prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace. However, some urban women in the formal sector often experience sexual harassment. Whenever recruiting and hiring female employees, focus on your organization’s protections and create a strong culture against sexual harassment and discrimination.

How to Hire Employees in Guinea

You must hire all employees using an employment contract. Guinea allows both fixed-term and indefinite-term contracts. However, fixed-term contracts cannot exceed two years and will switch to an indefinite-term contract if the employee keeps working for you after that period.

Make sure all employment contracts are in the local language and include everything from guaranteed benefits to termination requirements. Offer letters and employment contracts should also be in Guinean francs instead of any other currency. Your contract should line up with any applicable collective bargaining agreement (CBA) as well so that you’re staying compliant.

Guinea Employment Laws

Guinea’s employment compliance laws cover many aspects of the employment relationship, including worker safety, discrimination, and more. Article 27 of the National Labor Law and environmental regulations as part of the Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Health require employers to meet health and safety obligations.

The Ministry of Labor policies also prohibit harassment — either verbal or physical — toward any employee because of their race, color, religion, age, disability, or marital status. Article 48 of Guinea’s employment compliance laws require lawyers to implement all fair employment practices, including working conditions for nationals and expatriates.

Onboarding in Guinea

After you hire Guinea employees, you need to onboard them using a process that makes them familiar with your company and their new position. We recommend starting the employment relationship by reviewing all important documents, including the employment contract. Doing so will ensure that everyone agrees to the right terms. If you want to streamline the onboarding process, you can onboard multiple employees at one time and travel to Guinea to welcome them to the company.
