we recognize that our organization will succeed and grow only if we attract and retain the highest-quality workforce: talented, engaged employees dedicated to engaging with customers and fulfilling our corporate mission and values.
We are committed to treating our employees well – from providing a welcoming work environment to competitive total compensation and benefit programs to comprehensive development opportunities – and we strive to ensure that we reward our employees with more than a paycheck. People, Performance, Passion – our mission is to deliver an employee value proposition that ignites passion, “unwraps” potential, builds capability, drives performance and wins in the marketplace.
One of our principles in the IKK Group is that we believe in the capacities and competitiveness of the local labor force. Inline to achieve an excellent level and the fulfillment of the Ministry of Labor’s Nationalization Program, local hiring has been intensified, as evidenced by the significant growth in the hiring of Saudi Nationals.
Our National Human Resources team has systematized the control and coordination of visa utilization by establishing a steady system flow through proper channels. We have minimized staff turnover by maintaining a harmonious work environment and demonstrating care for every employee through open communication and periodic counseling while maintaining and enforcing high standards of ethical conduct.
Our Human Resources team has also fully supported the integration of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) that streamlined HR workflow, payroll system, communication, and accessibility to a non-centralized workforce.
The IKK Group has an unwritten tradition of developing its managers and leaders within the company rather than going out and hiring them. The Group believes in investing in young talented individuals who one day will be capable of managing their teams. As this has been going on for a while at IKK, all current managers and leaders understand the importance of guiding and training all team members. Having this embedded in the culture allows the Group to have employees step up into higher roles with ease continuously.
One of the most IKK human resources principles is that IKK recruits and hires employees regardless of race, color, nationality, ethnic origin, religion, sect, or gender. All rights, privileges, programs, training, activities, compensations, and remunerations are provided to all employees on the established scale. Employees are hired and awarded according to their qualifications, accomplishments, educational background, degree, experience, loyalty, and merits.
IKK believes in adopting an Individual Career Path (ICP), which becomes the road map to individual development potential. IKK provides a challenging work environment in which achievers are rewarded. At IKK, the Human Resources and Development department’s task is to handle all personnel matters such as recruitment, social services, residence permits, timekeeping, staff files, staff insurance policies, HR seminars, and training programs. The Group is committed to hiring high-caliber staff.
The IKK Group has developed a Nationalization Program supporting the qualified national workforce. With nationalization, IKK strives to encourage and increase the employment of young Saudi nationals.
The Induction Program aims to increase our Nationalization ratio by recruiting talented Saudi graduates and placing them in jobs that suit their skills and capabilities. At the beginning of the program, top management set a very clear and high-aiming goal: to raise the Saudization ratio to meet and even exceed the requirements of the new labor law in terms of manpower. Our Program offers Saudi fresh graduates of high schools or universities who hold diplomas, Bachelor’s or master’s degrees comprehensive training focusing on:
The values of teamwork and customer satisfaction:
At a later stage, the young Saudis are being trained for the challenging work environment based on their tasks. The program involves vocational training, practical exercises, and, most importantly on-the-job training sessions at the office or on Jobsite.
