Program to help private sector boost Saudization

Saudi Minister of Human Resources and Social Development Ahmed Al-Rajhi has inaugurated the platform to document flexible work contracts; between employees and employers.

Al-Rajhi said that the flexible work program would contribute to boosting the Kingdom’s economy — at the level of enterprises and individuals — to achieve the objectives of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030; by increasing the number of local cadres integrated into the job market.
