ROSHN, a leading real estate developer powered by the Saudi Public Investment Fund, has been recently awarded the Best Place to Work certification for the second year in a row. During the company’s assessment, 93 percent of the employees responded to a survey illustrating the company’s focus on creating a stand-out employee experience where everyone can be at their best as well as feel a sense of belonging.
The certification was based on anonymous ratings provided by employees and an HR assessment evaluating the company’s people practices. Close to 20 workplace culture categories were measured, from work-life balance, leadership, and professional development opportunities to compensation, and perks and benefits.
“People are at the center of ROSHN’s strategy when it comes to designing our new communities, and the same goes for our internal organization,” said David Grover, group chief executive at ROSHN. He added: “We couldn’t do what we do without our amazing talented team. I want to congratulate those members of the ROSHN family who have helped in putting us among the best companies to work for in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the second consecutive year; this award is a testament to their dedication and commitment during a challenging and exciting phase of ROSHN’s journey.”
Best Places to Work is the most definitive “Employer of Choice” certification that organizations aspire to achieve. The Best Places to Work Assessment model is built on more than 30 years of research in workplace excellence along with the best practices collected annually from over 5,000 certified companies worldwide.
Ahmed Alhomoud, chief human resources officer at ROSHN, said: “We are delighted to, once more, be recognized as one of the best employers in Saudi Arabia. At ROSHN, we believe that our people are our biggest asset and one of the most important aspects that gives us competitive advantage. We are motivated to create a work environment for our employees to reach their true potential.”
Companies named Best Place to Work know how to build a competitive advantage regardless of potential barriers, including company size, geographic dispersion and industry characteristics. For its second year of participation, ROSHN scored high in employee engagement, confidence in the leadership and talent focus.
