Labor Market

Kosovo is blessed with a young, skilled, multilingual and motivated labor force with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. Taking into consideration the high availability of the work force and the liberal labor law that governs the local labor market, hiring employees in Kosovo is both efficient and simple. According to the “Doing Business 2013” of the World Bank, Kosovo can outperform most of its neighboring countries when it comes to the simplicity of hiring new employees.

The same applies to the cost of making workers redundant, which, equal to a salary of 7.2 weeks, is below the regional average.
