OSN strengthens KSA presence with new Riyadh office

OSN, the region’s premier entertainment company, has expanded its operations in the Kingdom with new headquarters in Riyadh.
The new OSN Saudi headquarters in the Al Olaya district includes an additional call center, underlining customer service at the heart of OSN’s operations.
Bandar Assiri, head of the General Commission for Audiovisual Media (GCAM), attended the ribbon cutting ceremony as guest of honor, during the official opening.
The new office supports OSN’s pursuit of “Platinum Employer” status in the local Nitaqat labor law system by placing strong emphasis on achieving the government’s goal of boosting the number of Saudi nationals in employment and further encouraging women in the workplace. The headquarters complies with all state federal requirements including segregated workspaces for female employees.
Assiri said: “It’s impressive to see the positive investment OSN is making in the Kingdom. The new headquarters and OSN’s focus on training and development demonstrate a strong commitment to Saudization. As a regulator, we not only focus on technical compliance, but we also support organizations in achieving compliance and we are very happy to be working closely with OSN.”
Bandar Al-Sunbuly, general manager of OSN Saudi Arabia, said: “The new offices are equipped with the latest technologies which will support our core business of sales, installations and customer care — making OSN one of the most progressive companies in the Kingdom. Additional benefits include bigger office space and commitment to training and development of staff, which will help us to grow our workforce and expand our business.”
The company recently undertook a recruitment drive, which resulted in the hiring of over 20 qualified female candidates following an influx of applications.
OSN has invested in expanding its retail network across the Kingdom with a footprint of 74 touch points serving residents in rural areas too. OSN has also in recent years opened new offices in Jeddah taking the total number of corporate offices in the Kingdom to three.
