Botswana, a landlocked country in Southern Africa, has been recognized for its favorable business environment and investment climate. In the World Bank’s latest Ease of Doing Business Index, Botswana ranks highly among other countries, showcasing its potential as a desirable destination for international organizations looking to expand their operations.

This impressive ranking is a testament to Botswana’s proactive approach in fostering a business-friendly environment. Factors contributing to this positive outlook include political stability, robust economic growth, and a transparent regulatory framework. These attributes create a conducive atmosphere for businesses to thrive, making Botswana an attractive option for global companies.

The government of Botswana has implemented various policies aimed at attracting foreign investment, such as reduced corporate tax rates, investment incentives, and streamlined business registration processes. These measures, combined with the country’s strategic location and access to regional markets, make Botswana a compelling choice for international organizations seeking to establish a foothold in the African continent.

Hiring in Botswana

When it comes to hiring employees in Botswana, global companies have a few options to consider. One approach is to establish a local legal entity, which can provide direct control over the hiring process.

Employee probation period: Unskilled employees may serve a probationary period of up to three months, while skilled employees can serve up to 12 months. This allows employers to assess the suitability of new hires before confirming their employment.

Annual leave in Botswana: Employees are generally entitled to 15 days of paid leave per year. A minimum of 8 days must be taken within 6 months, while the remaining days must be utilized within a 3-year period.

Maternity leave in Botswana: Female employees are entitled to 12 weeks of maternity leave, with 6 weeks to be taken before the birth and 6 weeks after. A doctor’s certificate is required, and employees are eligible to receive at least 50% of their basic pay during this period.

Social security in Botswana

In Botswana, there are currently no social security taxes or contributions mandated by the government. This unique aspect of the country’s labor market presents both opportunities and challenges for international organizations operating in Botswana.

On one hand, the absence of social security taxes and contributions can result in reduced employment costs for businesses, making Botswana an attractive destination for global companies. This factor may also contribute to higher employee take-home pay, which can be beneficial in attracting and retaining talent in the local market.

On the other hand, the lack of a formal social security system may necessitate organizations to consider offering supplementary benefits, such as private retirement or insurance plans, to ensure the well-being of their employees. This can help to compensate for the absence of a government-mandated social security program and support employee retention in the long term.

At Breedj, our extensive knowledge of the local labor market enables us to provide expert guidance on navigating the unique social security landscape in the country. By partnering with us as your employer of record provider in Botswana, you can be confident that your organization is equipped to address the challenges and opportunities presented by Botswana’s social security system, while ensuring full compliance with local labor laws.
