Recruiting and hiring are vital to your entity’s operation. You need a talented team of workers that support your company vision and dedicate themselves to your business’s success. When you start hiring in other countries, you also need to think about labor laws and the expectations locals have for employers.
Globalization Partners makes finding talent in Monaco easy with our hiring outsourcing.
The Recruitment Process in Monaco
Your recruitment process should start with the creation of a job description. This description should include any necessary education, skills needed, and a summary of responsibilities. A well-crafted description will help you find the right talent for the job.
While there are many international employees based in the country, the government prioritizes Monegasque nationals over other non-citizen candidates. Before recruiting your employees, you must submit your open position to Employment Service under the Directorate of Labor. Employment Service may then introduce candidates to fill the position if they meet the citizen’s priority.
If Employment Service doesn’t present a candidate after four days, you can find candidates yourself. During this process, you’ll likely conduct your interviews and identify the best talent for your job. Once you choose a potential employee, the Employment Service will confirm your pick and sign related documents to prove this confirmation.
Posting Open Positions
If the Employment Service doesn’t find a candidate for you, you can start posting your position in other places. JobMonaco is a French job site that many people use for their career search. With Kompass, you can post your company, and searchers can find employers that match their wants and needs.
How to Hire Monaco Employees
Though Monaco doesn’t require employment contracts, you’ll likely have an agreement with your employee. It will most likely be some form of collective agreement. The first step in hiring is making sure you and your employee understand the hiring terms.
As an employer, you’ll be responsible for helping your employee get a work permit. These permits are required for citizens and non-citizens, and you will need to apply for them through the Employment Service. You can begin this process after you submit your candidate to the Directorate of Labor. In Monaco, a work permit acts like a contract. Employees must renew their permits with every new position.
You’ll also be responsible for registering your employees with the pension and social funds. This registration allows you to deduct these taxes from your employee paychecks and lets your workers benefit from these provisions when they need them.
With the presence of unions and collective agreements, there are laws surrounding employee representation in the workplace. If your company has 10 or more employees, you need to have a staff representative.
A staff representative acts as a point of communication between the employer and employees. The employer consults them on issues like redundancies, working hours, and paid leave. They also help manage the social fund with the employer.
Employees will elect this position among them, and the employer must initiate the voting process. Once a representative is elected, the employer must meet with them once a month to discuss the workers’ interests and concerns.
Once you’ve hired your employees, you have to think about your onboarding process. This step is vital to how confident your employees feel on the job and how they value you as a leader.
As an international employer, you may want to travel to the country for your employees’ first weeks. During this time, you can review the expectations of the position and how the job will work. When you first start up the company, you may want to initiate the staff representative vote.
It’s also wise to have a training program in place. This program can be one day of reviewing the job process, or it can be a more in-depth week with plenty of guidance. Design your training programs based on your industry and the difficulty of the position.
Onboarding may also include laying out your expectations for behavior in the workplace. You might write a code of conduct to make these expectations clear.
