When expanding into a new African territory, multinational organizations, whether commercial businesses or NGOs, all struggle with specific countries’ labor legislation, payroll regulations, mandatory and non-mandatory benefits, compliance exigencies and customary practices with regards to HR management. An Africa Professional Employer Organization specializes in these areas and also eliminates the need to establish your own entity in-country in order to launch your operations.
An Africa PEO fulfills all legal employer obligations in-country for you. It can hire and onboard the temporary or permanent employees that your company needs in significantly less time than a foreign organization could. Outsourcing to a specialist Professional Employer Organization in Africa also ensures absolute compliance with local labor law and regulatory frameworks, which is difficult to grasp without the appropriate local expertise.
An established Professional Employer Organization in Africa will ensure to include all mandatory employee benefits. But they are also able to extend beyond the bare minimum when clients wish to offer additional benefits to their workforce — either as an incentive or to align with standard group benefits that apply to all employees globally. Additional benefits may include comprehensive health insurance coverage, travel insurance, contribution to pension funds and other fringe benefits.
An experienced Professional Employer Organization in Africa is fully accredited to deliver end-to-end immigration support services on behalf of its multinational clientele. Obtaining work permits and resident permits for dependents can be a stressful process. But if approached correctly, it can help motivate expatriate staff and ensure that their new employment starts on the right note. Deploying expatriate staff to work in Africa is a costly process, but engaging the services of an experienced African PEO helps eliminate unforeseen expenses by diligently adhering to all required processes in-country.
A reputable Africa PEO provider not only facilitates hiring of staff, but also takes the lead on reassignments and terminations of contracts. In particular, an Africa Professional Employer Organization is uniquely qualified to assist when economic and operating environments change — and there is a need to rapidly amend employment contracts, adjust salaries, redeploy staff and/or terminate resources, all of which will be delivered in a legally compliant, transparent and respectful manner.
