In Liberia, the average after-tax salary is $303, which is enough to cover living expenses for 0.6 months.

Why is it so expensive to live in Liberia?

6. Major industries in Liberia

COVID-19 made us realize how pointless to some extent future planning can be, we cannot underestimate the validity of the trends presented to us by technology, the generational shift in the workplace, and the evolving interests of the consumer. Because of the pandemic, more and more companies started hiring remote workers—as a means to minimize the vulnerability to another massive punch similar to COVID-19’s.

As the market evolves and certain technologies start becoming obsolete, new companies and organizations with innovative products and services tend to appear. When a small group of businesses in the same sector is centered around a specific new concept or technology in an early development stage they form what we know as an emerging industry.

These are the top industries in Liberia we believe have the most growth potential:

7. Hiring cost in Liberia

The hiring cost is an essential aspect to consider when you plan to hire remote workers in Liberia. Screening checks, legal aid, translator, staffing agency, hiring committee, the establishment of a legal organization, and ads are all considerations. Other variables that influence recruiting expenses include the cost of living in a place, training, onboarding, and opportunity costs.

8. Employment laws Liberia

Employment compliance laws require drafting an employment contract when you hire Liberia employees. The contract should include compensation, benefits, and entitlement and termination terms. Working hours are another aspect of employment compliance. Your employees cannot work more than the regular number of working hours per week, and if they do, they must be compensated for overtime unless they are a senior executive or manager. Overtime pay is mandatory and is based on the day and time your employee works.

9. Top skills Liberia

When staffing and recruiting in Liberia— or any other unfamiliar country — cultural nuances must be considered. A miscommunication could be all that stands between your company and a talented new employee who will help it grow. Before traveling abroad, invest some time in learning about Liberia business etiquette and workplace culture. Consider the following factors as you begin scheduling interviews and meetings with potential hires in Liberia.

Learning about Liberia culture and business etiquette will help you navigate meetings and interviews, but you should also research the logistics of staffing and recruiting in Liberia. When sourcing talent, you must consider a number of factors, including the best recruitment channels in Liberia and the laws your company must follow to remain compliant abroad.

When you start recruiting in Liberia you must decide whether you want to handle the process in-house or outsource it. Finding the right balance and making the most of your company's time and money can be difficult. It can take months to find talent on your own, and you'll need to find the best newspapers and job boards to advertise your open positions. If you're new to the Liberia market, professional networking can be difficult.

However, if you choose to hire employees through a traditional recruiting firm in another country, the costs can quickly add up. As a result, many companies that want to outsource the process choose to work with an Employer of Record, such as Rivermate, whose platform includes recruitment.
