Recruitment Indonesia: help support your business is a step that needs to be done after your company is established.
Not only rich in natural resources and potential markets, but Indonesia is also rich in labor forces. The problem is newly established foreign company in Indonesia, known as PT PMA, often has less knowledge and experience to make use of the great labor potentials.
This article will help you to understand the labor situation in Indonesia and is finally able to hire local talents to work in the company.
Before learning the recruitment process, first, understand Indonesia’s labor situation.
The population in Indonesia is more than 255 million, with 66.5% of them are in productive ages (between 15-60 years old). The median age is 28.2 years old. It shows that Indonesia has a great potential of workforce since the population is dominated by young generations. The young generations are ready to contribute to the economic sectors.
The labor force participation rate was 65.76% or approximately 169.6 million (2015), with the minimum provincial wage standard between IDR 2,700,000 to IDR 4,000,000. For higher and more skillful positions, the base salary would be at least IDR 5,000,000. Depending on the area, skills or expertise, and length of work.
Some of the greatest challenges in the labor force in Indonesia are first, the unequal distribution of the workforce since most of the talented and skillful workers reside in big cities in Java, such as Jakarta, Surabaya, Semarang, and Bandung.
Second, because Human Development Index in Indonesia is relatively lower than other countries in the world as well as in the Asian region (0.617), the quality of its labor force is considerably low. This challenge forces PT PMA to recruit the best quality workers among the abundance of human resources in Indonesia.
PT PMA can hold the recruitment process by two methods. The first is conducting an in-house recruitment process and the second is outsourcing the task to the third party. Either way, each of the recruitment processes usually follows the steps below:
This is usually done through media campaigns. Placing the ads in several reputable national job sites. Such as jobindo.com, karir.com, jobstreet.com, jobsdb.com/Indonesia/, and bestjobsindonesia.com is a great start. However, for more credibility, job seekers usually recheck the job ads by visiting the company’s website. Therefore, placing the ad in the company’s website is highly advisable.
The first thing to do before placing the ads openly to the public is to list down all the criteria needed for a specific position. Therefore, when there are so many application letters come in after the vacancy ads being placed publicly, the next daunting task will be to shortlist the candidates.
This is done through written and/or oral tests. The shortlisted candidates will usually follow several steps of the interview or selection process to prove themselves. This phase is not only consuming a lot of time but also resources.
After a tough selection process has been done, there will be some best candidates left. The company’s HRD or the external party will then give the best candidates to the end-user (the company or the company’s department) to select the most suitable one.
Since the recruitment process is an overwhelming task for any company, many of them prefer to outsource the duty to a third party that has the credibility to do so. As a market entry consulting firm, Cekindo also provides this service for PT PMA. With years of experience in this field plus a wide-ranging network it has to fully manage the recruitment and HR establishment for PT PMA, we will put our best efforts and resources to make sure that your company will have the best selections of candidates that will suit your company’s needs.
In addition, our special knowledge about Indonesia, Indonesian culture, working environments, workers’ characteristic, minimum regional base salary, and other local resources make Cekindo stands out as one of the leading PT PMA consulting firms in Indonesia. It enables us to provide the best local manpower with world-class qualifications that will support your team. It means that you will be equipped with qualified workers who understand the local business systems and cultures but can play and compete well in the global setting.
In terms of hiring foreigners, recruitment in Indonesia has strict regulations that should be followed. A PT PMA is not allowed to hire foreigners without obtaining a special permission letter from The Ministry of Labor and Immigration and other important documents signed by several government authorities under the Ministry.
Cekindo will assist you to get the required documents and legalization for both your company (that employs the expatriate) and the expatriate candidates, including:
Basically, there are 5 types of RPTKA which you foreign workers can obtain, such as:
1. General RPTKA
It is a common RPTKA for expats. The holders of this RPTKA can extend the license after 5 years.
2. Temporary RPTKA
This will be issued for a maximum period of 6 months and cannot be extended. Usually, workers need to come to Indonesia to do temporary jobs such as machinery installations of maintenances, trial product assistance, sales, or services.
3. Emergency RPTKA
This is a permit issued for emergency work situations, such as things that should be done, fixed, or addressed immediately in your company so that it will not potentially harm the existence of the company or the general public. This RPTKA can be issued for a maximum period of 1 month and cannot be extended.
4. Exclusive Economic Zone RPTKA
There is no time restriction for this RPTKA.
5. Impresario Service Business RPTKA
This RPTKA is given to any expats who want to manage or organize amusement activities in Indonesia. There is no time restriction for this RPTKA.
Next, the RPTKA holders need to apply for TA01 (Approval Recommendation Visa) to be able to get Indonesia Work Permit (RPTL).
This is for any expat who applies for a permanent resident permit. The KITAP is given for maximally 1 year and can be extended afterward.
This is an overwhelming process if it is not done by an experienced agent who understands the legal and bureaucratic systems in Indonesia. Considering that there are so many forms to be filled and so many documents to be prepared. You need to be careful to conduct the whole process if you want to recruit legally. And this is based on Indonesian Labor Law.
