Payroll in Kenya.

Kenya has both a prime location in Eastern Africa bordering the Indian Ocean and a large population of young people looking for work. The combination makes it a great country for an expansion, especially if you want to form ties to other companies in Africa. While you get ready for this exciting time in the life of your company, G-P can help make it as successful as possible.

Hiring in KeKenya.

Searching for talented employees to fill your open positions is challenging no matter where you are in the world. However, it can prove extra difficult to learn how to recruit and hire Kenyan employees if you’re not familiar with the country’s different employment compliance laws. Plus, you have to keep running your parent company on top of handling all aspects of your expansion.

Compensation & Benefits in Kenya.

Many different factors go into someone choosing one job over another. For example, one position may have an office with a shorter commute. Another company may offer perks that are too hard to pass up. You can make your company stand out by providing compensation and benefits that will attract top talent to your positions.

Kenya Subsidiary.

Deciding on an expansion to Kenya is a big move that will include many positive benefits for your company. However, expanding doesn’t come without challenges like hiring employees, deciding how to run a payroll, and determining which compensation and benefits will encourage greater retention rates. Plus, you’ll have to focus on running your new company location as well as your parent company.

Kenya Visas & Permits.

Over the last few years, Kenya has made it more difficult for foreigners to obtain work permits and visas. From having to submit applications online and through the mail to limiting the number of hired foreign workers in favor of Kenyans, companies have to follow many of the country’s policies, some of which make it more difficult to start working with a foreign team.
