Why hire talents from Eswatini

Eswatini, previously known as Swaziland, is not just an emerging economy but also a hotbed of young, skilled, and highly trainable talent. According to recent demographic studies, a staggering 60% of the nation’s populace is below the age of 25, offering a sustainable talent supply for years to come. 

With literacy rates surpassing 87%, Eswatini is ripe for technological adaptation, presenting global organizations with a rare blend of youth, education, and adaptability. But it’s not just the numbers that tell the story. 

The Eswatini workforce is culturally rich, linguistically diverse, and comes with an innate understanding of the African markets, thereby serving as a natural fit for companies looking to scale across the continent.

Sourcing talents from Eswatini

For international corporations unfamiliar with the Eswatini employment landscape, understanding local recruitment channels could be a significant challenge. Job boards, native recruitment agencies, and social media platforms have their own sets of rules and practices in Eswatini. 

This is where Breedj steps in with its Eswatini-specific RPO services. Our solutions are designed to address your needs at every stage of the recruitment cycle, from sourcing candidates to finalizing hires. Our local team of experts not only has a finger on the pulse of various industry sectors but is also well-versed in the unique cultural elements that inform local job-seeking behaviors. 

In short, we make your transition into the Eswatini labor market as smooth as possible, using the latest technology and best practices in recruitment.

Employment laws and regulations in Eswatini

Legal compliance is crucial for any global organization, and the same holds true when you are operating in Eswatini. Here’s what you need to know to stay compliant:

Employee Probation Period in Eswatini

In Eswatini, a probation period usually spans three months, which provides ample time for employers to assess new hires. This period can be mutually extended but should not, under any circumstances, exceed a total of six months. This framework allows businesses to ensure that they have made the right hiring decision, thereby reducing long-term labor costs.

Working Hours in Eswatini

The standard workweek in Eswatini is capped at 40 hours, typically broken down into eight-hour shifts across five days, usually from Monday to Friday. Employers must also ensure that workers have at least one designated rest day each week, allowing for better work-life balance and subsequently, higher productivity.

Overtime in Eswatini

Employers need to be cautious about overtime rules in Eswatini. The law specifies that overtime should not exceed 11 hours a week. The compensation for these extra hours is legally required to be 1.5 times the employee’s standard hourly wage, while double wages are mandated for work on public holidays.

Employment termination in Eswatini

Understanding the legal aspects of employment termination in Eswatini can safeguard your business from unnecessary legal disputes.

General Termination of Employment Policies

In Eswatini, fixed-term contracts come to a natural conclusion at the end of the agreed-upon term. Indefinite-term contracts, on the other hand, require due process for termination, including an adequate cause and a properly documented disciplinary process. Ignoring this can expose your business to legal vulnerabilities.

Notice Period in Eswatini

Eswatini labor laws mandate a minimum one-month notice period for indefinite-term contracts, provided the termination is not due to gross misconduct. This stipulation helps maintain a cordial employment relationship even during the termination process, ensuring a smooth transition for both parties involved.

Severance Pay in Eswatini

The Eswatini labor law prescribes that severance packages must include one month’s salary for each year of service. This applies specifically to indefinite-term contracts and aims to cushion the financial impact on employees.
