As part of efforts to maintain a healthy and productive working environment, Bupa Arabia for Cooperative Insurance has retained a competent workforce of Saudis at its work place to enhance productivity.
The company is following the direction of Saudi Vision 2030, aimed at employing Saudi nationals and promising them sustainable and stable careers.
Tariq Alamoudi, chief human resources officer at Bupa Arabia, said: “We have managed to increase our Saudization rates at Bupa Arabia to exceed 70 percent. It gives us great pleasure to empower Saudi talents at the company. We are firm believers in the Saudization of our workforce, which stands as solid foundations for our strategic plans. Bupa Arabia will continue to employ local talents in light of its significant development and growth across all clients and offered services.”
He added: “We at Bupa Arabia have been successful in attracting Saudi talents from all around the Kingdom ... we also stress several training programs and courses to equip them with the right skills as well as develop their knowledge … moreover, we invest in employees who assume top managerial positions to set them on the right track toward becoming successful leaders.”
It is vital for the company’s progress that it employs Saudi women as a key pillar of its workforce, said Alamoudi.
Bupa Arabia, he explained, is considered one of the leading companies that attract women, who currently represent 35 percent of their total workforce. “We focus on providing an independent work environment for women to create a positive work-life balance. Bupa Arabia also offers many distinct services, such as the in-house gym, nursery, lenient working hours for women and increasing maternity leave — to mention a few.”
