Ericsson was ranked amongst the best companies to work for in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for 2014. The leading provider of information and communications technology and services placed second on the list, and was presented with the honor by ‘Great Place to Work’ Institute, a global research and management consultancy, following a survey covering companies across industries in the Kingdom.
“We believe that we are only as good as the people we employ, therefore we strive to provide the right environment for our employees to grow and develop in,” said Ali Eid, President and Head of Ericsson in Saudi Arabia. “This has always been one of our priorities, and this award is a testimony to the right prioritization. This also becomes a perfect platform to work further in this direction and enhance career development opportunities for our team members,” he added.
“At Ericsson Saudi Arabia, we encourage every one of our unique employees to develop and build their life and career within our global and local organization. Our core values of respect, professionalism and perseverance are reflected not only in our workplace, but also in the way we do business with our customers and in our dealings with society. We are happy that this was emphasized by our employees in this survey,” he continued.
The selection process saw, the Great Place to Work Institute conduct an evaluation of each participating company, with two-thirds of the company’s score based on a survey sent to the employees in each company. The survey asks questions related to employees’ attitudes about the management’s credibility, employee engagement and job satisfaction, and is kept anonymous in order to ensure that employees aren’t pressured to provide positive responses.
The remaining third of the scoring is based on a second survey that is designed to assess each company’s pay benefits program, hiring processes, internal communications and development.
