Hire Employees in France — Overview

With one of the strongest economies in Europe, and a highly skilled professional workforce, France is one of the most common locations for European expansion and hiring.

It is worth noting, however, that a historically strong labor movement means a strictly regulated employment market. In light of this, it is common for international businesses hiring in France to seek a local hiring partner.
