Ease of doing business in Ivory Coast

Ivory Coast has made significant strides in recent years to improve its business environment, as evidenced by its ranking on the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index.

Hiring in Ivory Coast

Global companies seeking to hire talent in Ivory Coast have two primary options: setting up their own local entity or utilizing an Ivory Coast Employer of Record (EOR) service, such as the one offered by Breedj. Establishing a local entity can be a time-consuming and complex process, as it requires a thorough understanding of the country’s strict employment laws and regulations. Furthermore, non-compliance with these laws can result in fines, penalties, or legal disputes that could disrupt your business operations and tarnish your reputation.
