Understanding the calculations behind the Ghana Recruitment Cost Calculator 2024

Whether you are the Director of a multi-million organisation, setting up a new company in Ghana , or have a business venture in Ghana, knowing where your money goes and how much you spend on employment resources is essential. Staff costs in Ghana are one of the biggest expenditures for a company, but it isn’t just wages that cost the business money, there are additional expenditures, known more commonly as 'on-costs' or 'onboarding-costs'.

Calculating the true cost of an employee in Ghana can seem very complex but, as with most financial calculations with multiple elements, they can each be placed into simple cost buckets which allow us to provide a simple working formula:

tce = sc + bc + oc + fc


  • tce = The True Cost of an Employee in Ghana
  • sc = Salary Costs in Ghana
  • bc = Benefit Costs in Ghana
  • oc = Onboarding Costs in Ghana
  • fc = Facilities in Ghana

Each of these costs includes a number of sub elements which are defined within the calculator where you can enter specific amounts or a percentage rate for benchmarking expenditure. Please review the supporting guide "Calculating the 'True Cost of an Employee in Ghana' in 2024" which explains the associated costs computed within this calculator.

The True Cost of an Employee in Ghana Calculator is similar to the Cost Per Hire Calculator with the addition of live income tax and salary deductions for an employee working in Ghana in 2024.
