Sri Lanka Hiring

While there are many ways your business can succeed, one of the most important elements of success is your employees. You need to hire Sri Lanka employees who are talented, hardworking, and dedicated to your company. But how can you find those employees and hire them according to Sri Lanka’s employment compliance laws?

Globalization Partners offers Sri Lanka hiring outsourcing as part of ourĀ Global Expansion Platform™. We’ll either recruit top candidates for your positions or onboard the employees you’ve already chosen to hire. Your employees will get hired through our Sri Lanka PEO, but we will assign them to work for you. We’ll even manage the compliance on your behalf so that you can focus solely on building your business.

How to Hire Sri Lanka Employees

Sri Lanka allows you to hire employees using either an oral or written contract. That said, if you’re wondering about the best way to hire Sri Lanka employees, we recommend using a strong written contract that spells out all aspects of employment. You should include information about compensation, benefits, termination requirements, and working hours to stay compliant. Also, ensure that all salary and compensation amounts are in Sri Lankan rupees instead of another foreign currency.

If you would rather hire Sri Lanka employees using a probation period, you can as long as you negotiate and agree to the terms before they begin working for you. Typical trial periods are six months, with a three-month extension if necessary.

Sri Lanka Employment Compliance Laws

During the recruitment process, and even after you hire employees, you need to follow Sri Lanka’s employment compliance laws. For example, different sectors in Sri Lanka have their own laws and working hours. Office and shop workers have a standard 45-hour workweek, while factory workers work a maximum of 48 hours a week.

Any employee who works overtime should get at least 125% of their regular wages and cannot work more than 12 overtime hours in a week. While collective bargaining is allowed in Sri Lanka, the laws do not make it easy for unions to conduct business. Always check to see if a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) or trade union has power in your industry, as it could influence your employment contract.

How to Onboard Employees Successfully

After hiring your new employees, you need to create an onboarding system that will benefit both your new employee and your company. Since employment contracts are such a critical part of employment, we recommend reviewing those contracts with employees before they officially start. You can also provide a robust training program for employees to learn everything about their new positions and how your company operates.

Benefits of Sri Lanka Hiring Outsourcing

If you choose Sri Lanka hiring outsourcing instead of handling the process yourself, you’ll receive many benefits. For example, you won’t have to worry about recruiting if you haven’t chosen candidates. Globalization Partners will take care of recruiting, onboarding, and meeting all of Sri Lanka’s employment compliance laws. You can trust that your employees will have a positive hiring experience, and they’ll help your company by being productive right away.
