Your Zimbabwe subsidiary requires an entire team to run well. Hiring a talented team is the most important incorporation task you’ll undertake, and it deserves much of your time and energy. Unfortunately, many companies don’t have the time or experience to hire Zimbabwe employees while also creating a subsidiary, dealing with payroll, and building a benefits plan.
Globalization Partners makes it easier for companies to expand without having to learn how to hire Zimbabwe employees. Our team will recruit and hire talented employees for your team or onboard the candidates you’ve already selected. We’ll make sure every employee has a positive hiring experience, and we’ll ensure that you always meet Zimbabwe’s employment compliance laws.
How to Hire Zimbabwe Employees
Employment contracts in Zimbabwe can be oral or written, but we recommend hiring all employees using a strong written contract in English. You can choose what terms you want to spell out, but it’s best to include termination requirements, compensation, benefits, and working hours. When you list the salary and other monetary amounts, make sure you use Zimbabwean dollars instead of a foreign currency.
If you want to hire residents from other countries, they’ll require work permits through the Department of Immigration. As an employer, you’ll need to submit an application to the Principal Director and include $500. Employees must provide a completed residence permit application form, employment offer letter, evidence of English qualifications, and other identification documents.
Zimbabwe Employment Compliance Laws
Zimbabwe’s employment compliance laws include the Labour Act, Accident Prevention and Workers’ Compensation Scheme Notice, the National Social Security Authority Act, and more. Every employee must receive satisfactory and equitable conditions of work. You’re not allowed to force any employee to work in conditions less than those outlined in the law. Finally, you must give written instructions to employees that outline all safety measures.
Onboarding New Team Members
When you hire Zimbabwe employees, you need to onboard them to ensure total success with your company and their new job. Create a training program that helps employees get started and work productively. You should ensure that they understand all your company’s regulations and their employment contract so that they can do their best work within the right confines. If you operate a small subsidiary where employees will work closely together, make sure they have time to meet each other.
