1,800 Saudis work from home under new labor program

RIYADH: The Ministry of Labor and Social Development revealed Saturday that as many as 1,800 Saudi women and disabled people are currently working from home as part of the ministry’s efforts to facilitate access to work for all Saudi citizens.
According to the ministry's spokesman, Khalid Aba Al-Khail, 512 firms in 70 cities across the Kingdom are offering these kinds of working environments or systems for citizens. This is especially appropriate given the current era of impressive communication technology and connectivity in the country. The program aims to meet the needs of these two basic categories of the national workforce to help them join the labor market through the provision of job opportunities and flexible working conditions.
