When you first started hiring employees for your parent company, it may have taken months to find the right people for your open jobs and the duties you had in mind. Imagine the same hiring process, but in a foreign company with different employment compliance laws, cultural norms, and more. Instead of spending months trying to figure out how to hire employees in Qatar, you can choose a better option.
Globalization Partners will find the right talent in a day or two. As a global PEO, we’re able to hire employees through our existing subsidiary. These individuals will work for you without you facing the stress of establishing your own subsidiary.
How to Hire Employees in Qatar
Since Qatar has a large number of foreign nationals, you’ll often need to sponsor a work permit to hire an employee. Globalization Partners can sponsor the work permits for you, but we may need the nationality or work history of an employee to confirm the visa. It’s important to clarify whether you’ll sponsor only the employee’s work and residency permit or the candidate’s family’s residency permits. Many companies will also help a spouse and children get residency permits when hiring Qatar employees.
Qatar Employment Compliance Laws
The biggest Qatar employment compliance law is your employment contract. You must hire all employees under an employment contract in the local language. We recommend including benefits, compensation, termination and entitlement terms, and more to make sure there’s no confusion. Any compensation, salary, or bonus amounts in an offer letter or employment contract need to be in Qatari riyal instead of another currency.
How to Onboard Employees
Once you learn how to hire employees in Qatar, you need to onboard all your new employees and stay compliant with the country’s laws. Although there isn’t one way you must onboard employees, you can make them more comfortable by:
- Traveling to Qatar for the employee’s first day or week
- Onboarding several employees at one time to save time and allow bonding
- Providing job training tailored to the employee’s position
- Reviewing all employment contracts, visas, and similar documents
- Creating events for new employees to get to know each other and the company
