How To Hire Employees in North Macedonia
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
It’s important to begin recruitment with the right strategy in place. Ensure you have clear goals and a timeline in mind for recruiting and hiring.
1. Develop a Job Description
Evaluate what your business needs in an employee and write out the details of your requirements. 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.
Macedonia compliance law requires that when recruiting employees by public announcement, you must include the following:
- Position title
- Working conditions
- Working hours and schedule
- Compensation range
- Deadline to apply
- Period of time needed to make the selection
- Accurate contact details
2. Conduct Interviews
Create your strategy for processing resumes and evaluating applicants. Plan how you will narrow down your options to 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 questions and topics of discussion to gain insight into your candidates’ qualifications, interests, and prior experience so that you can effectively evaluate their eligibility for your business’s vacancy.
Macedonia’s labor law establishes required time periods for selection of a candidate based on the number of applicants so it is important to keep these timelines in mind when reviewing candidates.
3. Sign the Employment Contract
When you’ve chosen the right candidate to fill the position, you’ll need to follow all legal requirements and ensure you use the government’s employment contract form. You’ll need to provide it before the new hire begins employment with you, and you must get signatures from both you and your new employee.
You are responsible for providing vacation leave, sick leave, and maternity leave for your employees. Employees are also entitled to receive leave for bereavement, special holidays, and other special circumstances. You must also provide fair wages and ensure there is no discrimination in your hiring or employment practices.
Nonnationals may work in the country with the appropriate documentation and legal presence to enter North Macedonia.
As your employees prepare to join your team, you providing guidance and building rapport with them can significantly help them get started. The goal of onboarding is to help your employees feel welcome and smoothly adjust to the workflow, culture, and expectations of your workplace. If you can, consider flying into the country to help greet and orient your new employees.
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 ask when they have specific questions. Showing them around your business offices and property will help them know how to easily navigate the building and identify where they need to be throughout the workday.
During your initial orientation day, schedule a time to look over the employment contract and ensure full clarification with your employees on your responsibilities and theirs. You can also discuss your company’s values and any workplace expectations they should be aware of before their first day.
To ensure smooth onboarding, provide a solid foundation of training for your new hires. Understanding your workplace systems and how to address the tasks assigned to them will help your employees meet their maximum potential as they work for your business. You may need to offer specialized training for programs, technical processes, or other requirements related to their business role. Develop an onboarding training strategy that will help them:
- 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
