HR & Recruitment

When expanding to South Africa you'll need to make a few decisions in terms of staffing: decide if you can and want to relocate existing employees, and the processes required to employ foreign nationals (indigenous to your country of expansion).

Employing Foreign Nationals

The fundamental thing to comprehend when it comes to employing indigenous workers is the law. Depending on your location, the employment of staff can be affected by many extraneous factors, such as longevity of service, social charges, collective agreements, qualification and experience, etc.

Recruiting staff in South Africa will not be a major problem, as there are few restrictions and recruitment agencies operate in the country. However, labour law is very complicated, do seek advice from a local legal agency. Applications and procedure are provided by the South African Department of Labour.

International Employees

Yet again, plucking talent from neighbouring countries may not come without its woes. Make sure you know the legislative restrictions and allowances of such a practice.

Employee Relocation

Perhaps you need someone with talent, experience and reliability. Someone you can trust. Someone with the right understanding of your business to join you overseas. And why not. But you must consider both the cost-effectiveness of such a move, and the laws that preside over it in South Africa.
