The Saudization program emphasizes companies to increase the number of Saudi National employees and retain existing employees.
However, private organizations are suffering from the high turnover of Saudi nationals and less commitment towards their employers due to the following key reasons:
Lower Salaries Or Pay Scale
Especially at Graduate level demotivates young professionals when they enter the job market. They only work for a short period of time and tend to switch jobs until they get what they prefer.
Lack Of Adequate Training And Development
This plays a vital role in moving away from a job. If graduates can’t enhance their skills further then it gets difficult for them to compete in this challenging market.
Long Working Hours In The Private Sector
Thus, there is a preference of working in the government sector which has lesser working hours.
Many young employees leave their jobs in order to avail the scholarship program. They normally go for the 4 year undergraduate program or 2 year post graduate program abroad, mostly in the Occident.
Lack Of Designated Resting Areas For Women
Lots of female workers don’t get adequate space to avail their breaks when required.
