Hiring the perfect job candidates for your open positions will make or break your new company location in Niger. When you first built your company, you probably relied on your employees to make it what it is today. The same will be true during an expansion. However, you need to find the time to recruit candidates, learn Niger’s employment compliance laws, and more.
That’s why Globalization Partners offers Niger hiring outsourcing services through our subsidiary in the country. As a global PEO, we have entities all around the world that we can use to help you start working faster without the worry of compliance. We’ll either onboard the candidates you’ve already chosen or recruit top talent for you, making sure you can start working in a few days instead of a few months.
How to Hire Employees in Niger
Hiring employees in Niger must start with a written employment contract — either fixed or indefinite. Employment contracts must be in the local language and include important employment benefits, such as working hours, time off, salary, and more. All compensation and salary amounts should be in West African CFA francs instead of any other currency. While collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) are not extremely common in Niger, you must make sure your employment contract matches the agreement if applicable.
Niger Employment Compliance Laws
Niger has several important employment compliance laws that you must follow. For example, Niger’s 2010 Labor Code requires all companies to hire Nigerian nationals through direct recruitment or public or private hiring agencies. Before you terminate an employment contract, you have to consult with the Inspector of Labor. You also need to make sure you provide a safe working environment that allows employees to do their work and stay compliant.
Best Ways to Onboard Employees
After you learn how to hire employees in Niger, you also need to learn how to onboard them. We recommend reviewing the employment contract, your company’s important documents, and similar elements to make sure your employees understand their relationship with your company. You can even go a step further by providing job training that will make employees more comfortable with their position.
It’s also a good idea to travel to Niger for the onboarding process. You can schedule several employees to start during the same week, then have one meeting with all of them where you make them feel welcome.
