This is where Africa HR Solutions act as the go-to HR outsourcing partner, providing an end-to-end Zimbabwe HR outsourcing offering including Professional Employer Organisation (PEO), Employer of Record, payroll outsourcing, and other ancillary solutions, to help them implement their international business strategy successfully.

Zimbabwe's Economy

Considered as a landlocked economy in Southern Africa, between South Africa and Zambia, Zimbabwe is rich in mining resources such as platinum, gold, diamonds, and nickel. In terms of agriculture, the country has an abundance of maize, tobacco, and cotton. Zimbabwe is known to have had a tough economic and financial environment for a long time (2000-2009) impacted by hyperinflation causing liquidity and currency shortages. Today, with international help, including the World Bank, there have been significant investments to reconstruct Zimbabwe in various sectors such as sanitation, water, health, education, infrastructure among others. The country has high potential in the tourism sector, and it is a member of SADC (Southern African Development Community).
