Kuwait benefits management

Certainly, in PEO Middle East we recommend to include additional benefits that your workers may expect before distributing your entire benefit management plan. That is to say, your responsibilities as an organization are one of the aspects of international company management, but the appreciation of your workers will tell potential hire about the company.

In the same vein, when you offer additional benefits, you show that your organization value your employees’ contributions. Similarly, you are able to customize the benefits you are offering your workers; from support and resources in crisis to assistance in day-to-day activities, similarly, these benefits go a long way to building a strong relationship with your staff.

That is to say, some of the most common benefits in the country include:

Designing your worker benefits program

Certainly, the best options when you want additional benefits for your workers will vary from country to country; but you can follow some basic principles to help your plan. Thus, we recommend these 3 steps when you are creating your benefits program.

  1. Budget and Scope:

When you begin to plan this process, you must identify the goals of your programs and the scope of solutions you will provide. Further, you can discuss your business’ responsibilities with your partners, consider your available resources, and determine what you can spend. Similarly, setting a percentage for your income will make it easier for scaling your offerings as your business grows.

In addition, knowing your priorities and budget will assist you to create a sustainable program in the long term.

  1. Research the market and worker Needs:

The next step is to consider what your workers will need from this program. In addition, you can send questionnaires or you can interview local workers to acquire information on their requirements. In the same vein, in this step, you can also research the offerings of other businesses in your location and industry.

  1. Structure your benefits plan accordingly:

If you have already identified your priorities, budget, and important worker needs, you can start building your benefits plan. For instance, you must ensure you include outsourcing costs, containment features, and worker contributions in your benefit management calculations.

How to Hire Employees in Kuwait

It can be of good help to understand cultural components impacting how to hire Kuwaiti workers. For instance, people in the country highly value relationships, but nepotism is common in businesses. In addition, Kuwaiti citizens greet each other, they like to catch up on family members, friends, and subjects of mutual interests.

Further, Kuwaiti nationals are known as strong negotiators that appreciate dealing with issues outside of meetings instead of a group gathering. On the other hand, people tend to avoid saying “no”, so it is crucial to listen for words such as “possibly” or “perhaps”.

Similarly, you have in mind the following factors:

  • Using a mobile phone while driving or aggressive driving is heavily punished.
  • Liquor is forbidden; therefore, there are prison sentences for importing, consuming, brewing, and trafficking it.
  • The country has a long history of Islamic values, and foreign nationals must respect them.
  • Hiring foreign nationals requires a local sponsor acting as the Employer of Record.
