Easternpak Implements Saudi Labor Law for Recruiting Women

For OUTBOUND home page, go to

Easternpak Ltd. currently employs four women in the administration and customer service in accordance with the Saudi Labor law, which permitted companies in Saudi Arabia to recruit female employees effective 26 April 2006.

Saudi labor department authorities assessed the facilities of the corrugated packaging manufacturer in Dammam, Saudi Arabia and granted official clearance to have women employees.

Easternpak's Human Resources strategy focuses on implementing such employment practices in order to ensure a smoother and more productive work environment in line with the Saudization program.

Saudization Program

Saudization refers to the national policy in Saudi Arabia to encourage employment of Saudi nationals in the private sector, which, as of 2006, is largely dominated by expatriate workers from South and Southeast Asia. As of 2006, the program has met with little success.

The Saudi government has enacted policies to promote Saudization, including warnings that "companies which fail to comply with Saudization regulations will not be awarded government contracts".

As of April 2009 it was reported that Saudi campaign seeks to reduce number of foreign workers.[1]
