Saudi Human Resources expects 30,000 workers to join the flexible work system


Riyadh – Mubasher: The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development for Saudi Emiratisation, Ghazi Al-Shahrani, revealed the ministry’s expectations that 20 to 30 thousand people will join the flexible labor market in the coming months.

Al-Shahrani said, during an interview with “CNBC Arabia” TV, that during the year 2021, many activities will be able to benefit from the flexible work system after its success, and after it becomes the main characteristic of the market.

Al-Shahrani added that the ministry has set certain percentages according to activities to join the flexible work, expecting that restaurants, entertainment, retail and information technology activities will be the most widely used of the system.

The Undersecretary for Emiratisation confirmed that a flexible work system has been introduced that contributes to the benefit of the facilities from the youth, especially during seasonal work hours or during times of work pressures.

Al-Shahrani indicated that the new “flexible work” platform will be committed to registering social insurance on the pension item only, which represents 18% of the salary.

Yesterday, Wednesday, the Saudi Minister of Human Resources and Social Development, Ahmed bin Sulaiman Al-Rajhi, launched a “flexible” platform to document flexible work contracts between the employee and the employer.

The flexible work program aims to create new types of jobs for job seekers, and increase their chances of getting a flexible job to enable them to engage in the labor market, and raise their skills and experiences in preparation for their transformation into permanent employees.
