How to Hire Employees in the Holy See
Developing a successful strategy for pursuing candidates is critical to your business as you build a team of talented, dedicated professionals. The hiring process will look similar in some ways from one country to another, and it’s crucial to create a plan for engaging your candidates well.
As your Employer of Record (EOR), we can help you manage a range of diverse requirements. From compliance to payroll to best practices for hiring, we’re your trusted partner. Our goal is to further your company’s success and your employees’ satisfaction with your business by providing local support and expertise.
The Recruitment Process
Plan out the process you want to follow for recruiting Holy See workers and strategically pursue your staffing goals in the region. As you move forward, you’ll want to pay attention to best practices for engaging the best candidates.
Consider advertising open positions in the local newspaper, radio, and television media. Because of convenient relocation and employment between countries in the European Union (EU), many employees in surrounding regions may be interested in applying for your open positions as well. You may want to advertise in countries around the Vatican City, throughout Italy, and perhaps in other neighboring countries. A significant advantage of hiring in this region is that you have broad access to professional candidates nearby.
1. Develop a Job Description
Evaluate what your business needs in an employee and write out the details. Include a description of the position’s requirements, the qualifications you look for in candidates, and any other considerations potential applicants might want to know. You can also provide some information about your businesses’ values and mission so candidates have a clear picture of your company culture and expectations.
2. Conduct Interviews
Create your strategy for processing resumes and evaluating applicants. Plan how you will narrow down your options to find the top candidates for your vacancies. As you move into the interview stage, have a list of questions prepared to discuss with each candidate. Prepare some topics of discussion to gain insight into your candidates’ qualifications, interests, and prior experience so you can effectively evaluate their eligibility for your business’s vacancy.
3. Sign the Employment Contract
When you’ve chosen the right candidate to fill the position, you’ll need to follow all legal requirements for hiring employees in the Holy See. The best practice is to create a written employment contract. Be sure to provide it before the new hire starts working for your company. Both you and the employee will need to sign the contract.
You are responsible for providing vacation leave, sick leave, compassionate leave, and maternity leave for your employees. You must also provide fair wages and ensure there is no discrimination in your hiring or employment practices.
Holy See citizenship is not based on birth. Individuals can only apply for citizenship based on employment and residence in Vatican City. As a result, you will likely be bringing in Italian nationals and professionals from other nearby countries. Nonnationals may work in the country with the appropriate documentation and legal presence to enter Italy, and they will not require any additional visas or other requirements to cross the border.
As your employees prepare to join your team, you can help them get started by providing guidance and building rapport with them. The goal of onboarding is to help your new employees feel welcome. During this process, they should smoothly adjust to the workflow, culture, and expectations of your workplace. If you can, consider flying into the country to greet your new employees and help them settle in.
Focus on engaging your new hires on a personal level during onboarding. Ensure they meet the people they’ll be working with most often and help them understand who to go to when they have specific questions. Showing your new employees around the property will help them identify where they need to be throughout the workday and make it easier for them to navigate the premises.
During your initial orientation day, schedule some time to look over the employment contract with your new hires. Make sure they understand your responsibilities and their own. You can also discuss your company’s values and any workplace expectations they should be aware of before their first day on the job.
A solid foundation of training is another key aspect of a smooth onboarding process. To meet their maximum potential at your company, your new hires will need to understand your workplace systems and how to address the tasks assigned to them. You may need to offer specialized training for programs, technical processes, or other requirements depending on the position. Develop an onboarding training strategy that will help employees:
- Understand how to use any software, programs, or equipment related to their duties
- Adhere to business workflows and protocols
- Know what is expected for them during each workday
