All the others

Seeking to be in as many countries as possible, the offers of our competitors are not adapted to the specific specificities and needs of Africa.

Our competitors are not physically present in all the countries they offer, this greatly reduces the ability to anticipate the actions to be taken.

Use service providers to manage certain services offered to their customers. This generates complexities and additional costs.

Options to activate, limitations in the offer and generally no dedicated project manager available at any time.

Generally a team with great access to sales and customer support, not always adapted to specific needs.

A smooth, decontextualized approach that is unconnected between the service and the men and women who depend on this service.

Commitment to Quality and Efficiency : Whether you choose Kernel Remote or Kernel Global, our aim is to provide a comprehensive and effective solution for your recruitment and management needs in Africa, ensuring an unparalleled quality of service.

What is the total monthly cost of a collaborator hired through Kernel?

The total cost of a collaborator recruited via Kernel is calculated as follows: Gross Employee Salary + Employer Contributions + Kernel Offer

  1. Gross salary: This represents the gross salary that you will have negotiated with your employee and that will appear on their employment contract.
  2. Employer charges: These charges vary according to the countries where you are recruiting and are directly linked to local regulations. For each recruitment, we inform you of the amount of these charges.
  3. Kernel Offer: This represents the amount of the offer you selected for this collaborator.

Kernel is committed to offering a transparent and understandable pricing structure, allowing you to effectively manage the costs associated with your international expansion.

Assistance and Transparency : Our team is available to provide you with detailed advice on the cost structure and to help you understand all the financial aspects related to international hiring. We are dedicated to ensuring total transparency so you can make informed decisions.

How is the employment contract structured for an employee recruited via Kernel?

At Kernel, we play an essential role as an International Reference Employer. Here's how it works:

  1. Drafting the employment contract : When you recruit an employee in a specific country, Kernel acts as a Reference Employer. The employment contract is then established between the employee and the local Kernel structure. This contract will respect the specificities you have determined, such as salary, working hours, benefits, etc.
  2. Your relationship with Kernel and the employee : For your part, you are bound to Kernel and your collaborator by an “Execution Agreement”. This agreement ensures that the employee is employed according to the conditions you have set. It therefore formalizes your commitment and that of Kernel to respect the terms agreed for the employment of your collaborator.

This process ensures that the employment contract complies with local laws and regulations, while also complying with the terms and conditions you have established. Our objective is to facilitate your international recruitment by ensuring flawless legal compliance.

Support and Compliance : The Kernel team is always available to support you in these steps and to ensure that everything takes place in full legal compliance. We're here to help you navigate the complexities of international recruiting.

What should I do if a collaborator recruited via Kernel does not meet my expectations?

At Kernel, we understand that recruiting internationally can be challenging at times. It is crucial to comply with the local regulations of the country where the employee was hired. Here is how to proceed in different situations:

During the trial period : As with any local recruitment, you can define a trial period. If, during this period, the employee does not meet your expectations, you have the option of terminating his contract in accordance with the standards in force.

After the trial period : If problems occur after the trial period, you have two options:

  • Conventional termination: You can negotiate with the employee a mutually agreed breach of contract.
  • Dismissal: If an amicable termination is not possible, dismissal may be considered, according to legitimate reasons determined by local law.

It is important to note that, although Kernel facilitates the recruitment process by reducing the administrative, fiscal and legal burden, you are still required to respect the rights of your employees and the labor laws of the country concerned. In the event of non-compliance with these obligations, and if costs related to legal proceedings arise as a result, these fees will be re-invoiced to you by Kernel.

Kernel Support : Our teams are at your disposal to support you throughout your recruitment processes and to answer all your questions. We are here to ensure a smooth international recruitment experience that meets current standards.

What happens if an employee recruited via Kernel decides to resign?

Resignation is a possibility for any employee, including those recruited via Kernel. Here's how it's handled:

Possibility of resignation: Just like in any other company, your employee has the right to resign if he wishes.

Compliance with local regulations: The employee must comply with the legal rules in force in the country of employment, which generally includes complying with a notice period.

Kernel support in case of resignation:

  • Immediate assistance: If one of your employees resigns, our talent department is ready to intervene quickly to minimize the impact on your business.
  • Search for suitable profiles: We help you find a qualified and competent replacement, with equivalent abilities, as soon as possible.

Ongoing support : At Kernel, our commitment is not limited to the recruitment phase. We are always at your side to help you manage the complexities associated with managing the human resources of your international employees.

Kernel commitment : We understand the importance of maintaining a stable and competent team. That is why we are committed to supporting you every step of the way, thus ensuring smooth and effective HR management.

How does managing multiple collaborators work with Kernel?

Kernel offers a simplified and effective solution for customers who choose to recruit entire teams. Here's how it works:

Centralized Online Management : You manage all of your employees via a dedicated online space. This platform allows you to manage contracts, payrolls, benefits, as well as absences and holidays, as easily as on any HR tracking software.

Kernel Services : We take care of all administrative and legal aspects, as well as declarations and compliance for you. Our role is to free you from the complexity of these tasks, allowing you to focus on the development of your business.

Simplifying Payroll Management : Each month, you will receive a single invoice covering all salaries, expenses, bonuses, benefits and other expenses related to your employees. This invoice is sent to you in your currency. We then take care of all the following steps: currency conversion, transfer, distribution, as well as the preparation of pay slips.
