The ministry told Al-Arabiya today, Tuesday, that most of the work contracts documented in the flexible work platform were concentrated in the Riyadh region, followed by the Eastern region and then the Makkah region.
The Ministry of Human Resources indicated that the percentage of females from those contracts last month reached nearly 30%.
She added that the highest activities that have benefited from the flexible work system since its inception are the activities of “retail and wholesale, stores and outlets, engineering and architectural consultations, general construction, and postal logistics.”
The ministry emphasized that there is an increasing demand from some establishments in the private sector to take advantage of this new pattern in the labor market to meet their needs of workers faster and with less operational costs, especially in the retail sectors.
She also pointed out that some establishments preferred to wait and did not start to activate their employment procedures in this manner, and it is expected that there will be a great demand for employment in this pattern from the sectors of restaurants, cafes and tourism activities gradually, with the return of business to its previous era, before applying the precautionary measures to reduce Corona.
The “flexible work” system is a system that allows contracting between the facility and the citizen to work for specific hours, without requiring the facility to pay leaves or end of service benefits.
