HR & Recruitment in Switzerland
When expanding a business to Switzerland, 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.
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. Although Switzerland is not a member of the EU it has close relations through the EEA to EU countries. This means that it is relatively easy for EU residents to work and live there. However whether a EU resident or a third country resident all visas and work permits will need to be acquired.
In some countries, employing a certain amount of indigenous workers is mandatory. There are no specific laws about the amount of indigenous workers that must be employed in a company. It may depend on the type of company that you wish to set up may alter these conditions.
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.
