Hiring in Zimbabwe

Unfortunately, a single man and his actions has created the typical image of Zimbabwe we’re used to. But beyond the dictatorship of Robert Mugabe lies a stunning African nation, teeming with wildlife, that is ripe for development – and Zimbabweans are certainly willing.

Following extended periods of economic ruin and hyperinflation that become an international joke with banknotes suddenly worthless day on day, Zimbabwe still sits in a period of uncertainty, albeit backed up by significant growth. GDP level are improving and more investment is being seen as the new administration seeks to capitalise on Zimbabwe’s natural resources and long stagnant workforce.

Sadly, not much has changed in terms of Zimbabwean labour practices. Much work is still informal and without protections, and wages are some of the most meagre both in Africa and the world. Many Zimbabweans live in poverty, throwing up ethical challenges for foreign companies looking to invest. A payroll expert is a must in this developing nation.
