Establishing winning nationalization strategies to develop & maximize Saudi Arabia's human capital

The last few months have witnessed a dramatic change in the labor landscape in Saudi Arabia with the mass exodus of expats taking advantage of the recent amnesty for undocumented workers and foreign over stayers. Whilst this has created a challenge in the short term, the long term impact of this decree presents an excellent opportunity for the Kingdom to develop its human capital.

Saudization 2013, taking place in Riyadh on 15 - 16 September, will highlight the training methods employed to elevate the skill base of the Saudi workforce as well as discuss the strategies implemented by leading companies in recruiting and retaining local staff to comply with Nitaqat requirements. You will hear from some of the leading employers in the Kingdom and engage in an exchange of ideas and best practices that can be implemented in your organization.

Benefits of attending:

  • Creating the optimum policies and programs to drive compliance
  • Gaining  an insight into the best practices of the top ‘green zone’ companies
  • Hearing about award winning Saudization Schemes
  • Understanding how to train and motivate your staff to avoid ‘job hopping’
  • Meeting with the leading employers from the kingdom about their future vision for the Saudi workforce
