The ministry of human resources and social development (HRSD) recognized Zain KSA’s efforts for job localization in the ICT sector with the HRSD Labor Award.
Commenting on this award, Eng. Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Deghaither, Zain KSA CEO, said, “We are extremely proud to receive this award that recognizes Zain KSA’s remarkable efforts and initiatives aimed at increasing the contribution of young Saudi women and men in the job market and supporting their competencies by offering them equal opportunities for career development and growth. At Zain KSA, we realize that attracting and supporting local talents in finding the right career path and providing an ideal work environment that matches their ambition is the right way for developing the ICT sector while achieving its sustainability and maximizing its economic contribution. Through this framework, Zain KSA works to intensify digital development and innovation within Saudi Arabia through young national talents that share one nation, one vision, and one goal. We take pride in having a high localization rate, with the majority of our workforce and our leadership being national talents. Additionally, Zain KSA’s high employee retention rate confirms that the Company upholds an exemplary work environment that meticulously attends to employees’ concerns and supports them to constantly develop their capabilities.”
Al-Deghaither voiced appreciation for HE Eng. Ahmed bin Sulaiman Al-Rajhi, HRSD minister, and the ministry’s team for their initiative that motivates enterprises to maximize localization and support the growth of ambitious national talents.
It is worth noting that the HRSD Labor Award is granted within two main areas: localization and work environment excellence. The award is part of HRSD’s initiative to provide a stimulating work environment that drives demand from job seekers and expands citizens’ participation in the labor market to raise localization within the private sector and achieve the targeted rates.
