The 2019 Saudi Arabia Great Place to Work ranked hotel giant Hilton as the top place to work in the kingdom, followed by Intercontinental Hotel Group and logistics firm DHL KSA.
The Capital Market Authority (CMA) was ranked first as best workplace among governmental agencies while the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) was recognised for achieving the fastest year-on-year improvement.
