SNAS-DHL has announced it will become the flagship initiative for the Saudisation strategy.
SNAS-DHL has announced that it has upgraded its career development programme to become the flagship initiative of its expanding Saudisation strategy. The programme, which is being run at the company’s headquarters in Al Khobar by a top level team, will recruit and fast track Saudi nationals.
“We are working closely with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, universities and the labour office to recruit and train Saudi nationals,” said Mohammed Al Jamea, human resources manager, SNAS-DHL.
“We recognise that as a long standing logistics and express company in the Kingdom we have a responsibility to develop local talent and we take this responsibility very seriously indeed,” he added.
The logistics company presently has 270 Saudi nationals on its workforce, which represents 41% of its total staff. However it is hoping to increase this number to 45% by the end of the year. The team in charge of the recruitment drive hopes to increase the number of job opportunities for Saudi nationals at all levels of the company.
“We are determined that through this programme we will prepare and train the next generation of SNAS-DHL. After a year of training we then review performance and then international, local or internal courses are provided to help further enhance their position within SNAS-DHL, ” added Al-Jamea.
