Payroll in Swaziland.

Eswatini, formerly Swaziland, is a small southern African country that’s only 81 miles across. It has an absolute monarchy and a population of 1.2 million people looking for work. While expanding to Eswatini is an exciting prospect for your company, you still have to think about many different employment factors, such as setting up your payroll, managing the incorporation process, hiring employees, and more.

Hiring in SzSwaziland.

Eswatini, also known as Swaziland, had a high unemployment rate as recently as 2020, as well as a shortage of technically skilled labor. The tough labor environment can make it difficult to find talented candidates and meet the country’s employment compliance laws. Plus, you have to worry about running a new company location on top of handling employment.

Compensation & Benefits in Swaziland.

Compensation and benefits are important to your employees and the health of your company. Employees expect a certain level of compensation and benefits that meet the statutory requirements and go above and beyond. Plus, employers need to meet Eswatini’s compensation laws to stay compliant and provide the right benefits to encourage greater retention rates.

Swaziland Subsidiary.

Companies expanding to Eswatini can enjoy new business relationships, employment contracts with talented candidates, and the opportunity to push their business across the country. However, an expansion also comes with challenges, especially learning how to set up an Eswatini subsidiary. Once you choose a location and an entity, it can take weeks or months to expand and push back crucial tasks such as hiring employees, sourcing compensation and benefits, and setting up your payroll.
