Landmark Arabia achieves 100% nationalization of jobs in Qassim

Al-Qassim Gov. Prince Faisal bin Mishaal has lauded Landmark Arabia’s efforts in achieving its 100 percent localization targets of retail jobs across the region.
Landmark Arabia, a leading retail and hospitality conglomerate in the Middle East, hired 350 Saudi nationals in the region since July, 200 of whom are women. The group said it is in line with its commitment toward 100 percent nationalization in all stores across Qassim.
The bulk of the new employees have been hired in Buraidah and Onaizah, numbering 120 and 110 in each, respectively. Ninety more nationals were hired in Al-Ras, and 30 were hired in Al-Bukairiah. This has brought the total number of Landmark Arabia’s local staff in Qassim to 550 nationals across 47 stores, resulting in complete nationalization of staff in that region.
The group’s retail offerings include 18 home-grown brands, such as Centrepoint, Babyshop, Shoe Mart, Lifestyle, Splash, Max, Home Centre and more.
On his visit to the Nakheel Mall in Buraidah recently, Prince Faisal spoke to the staff at Max, Landmark Arabia’s leading value fashion and apparel brand. The governor shared words of encouragement, and thanked Landmark Arabia for their support of the nationalization policies in the Saudi retail sector.
Taher Al-Dabbagh, chief human capital and corporate affairs officer, Landmark Arabia, said: “We are honored that Prince Faisal bin Mishaal visited our store in Nakheel Mall and praised Landmark Arabia’s successful localization of retail occupations in Qassim. His words of praise and encouragement are a testament to our commitment toward the organized retail sector in Saudi Arabia, in line with Saudi Vision 2030.”
He added: “We are proud to be growing our Saudi workforce, and look forward to supporting them through management and training programs as they endeavour to build enduring careers with Landmark Arabia.”
Landmark Arabia is an international company with strong roots in Saudi Arabia, and has a presence in over 45 cities across the Kingdom.
