Benefits package in Accra

Home > Expat Guides > Africa > Ghana > Accra

Employees accept job offers not only upon the salary, but also on the benefits that accompany many positions. Employee benefits are a "job perk" that may convince a potential employee to join a specific company. Evaluate what benefits are valuable to you when looking for a package. For more information, check out our article on expat package compensation.


If you are traveling abroad with your company, you may be offered other incentives to help ease the transition. In addition to a salary increase, you might be offered:

  • Educational assistance for your children (very important in Ghana!)
  • Relocation assistance (financial compensation for selling your house, relocating, buying a new house, etc.)
  • Travel incentives (flights for visiting family/friends or flights back home)
  • Job search support for partners
  • Cost of living adjustments to your salary
