Index Signals: Regulation And Unionisation Driving Up Labour Costs In Southern Africa

While Southern Africa stands out as the most competitive region in Sub-Sahara Africa from an overall Labour Market Risk perspective, boosted by large labour pools and rising educational attainment levels, frequent bouts of worker strikes that disrupt production and the strong influence of labour unions expose businesses based in the sub-region to high labour costs. Over the medium term, labour regulations will likely remain rigid, underpinned by the prevalence of left-leaning labour market policies aimed at preventing job losses throughout Southern Africa. This together with the rising cost of living will continue to exert upward pressure on compensation requirements and limit the ability of businesses to downsize their workforce in times of necessity.
