Bupa Arabia for Cooperative Insurance was recognized for the fourth year in a row as the best place to work in Saudi Arabia in 2017 by “Great Place to Work.”
Being among the top 20, Bupa Arabia continues to provide the best working environment by encouraging creativity and investing in the company’s overall performance.
Ahmed Abdulraouf, head of culture and engagement at Bupa Arabia, said: “We are very pleased to be recognized by such a prestigious award that credits Bupa Arabia’s efforts in support of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 and the 2020 National Transformation Program. Bupa Arabia abides by the Kingdom’s development and direction which urges national companies to identify, attract and develop Saudi cadres and human capital.”
He continued: “We are focused on creating a nurturing work environment that pushes employees to work more comfortably and to achieve more across their respective disciplines. Bupa Arabia also strives to achieve sustainable Saudization rates along with women empowerment and encouraging those with special needs. We have succeeded in increasing Saudization to more than 65 percent of the workforce and launching several programs in parallel to employ and train young Saudis, namely the Future Leaders Program (FLP) and the home-based work program.”
Abdulraouf said Bupa Arabia pays particular attention to the improvement of its business environment to increase employees’ productivity and to encourage creativity and innovation at work. The company succeeded in creating an ideal life-work balance and crafting a unique and independent working environment for women. This was achieved by providing a variety of services such as a health club, nursery and equal career opportunities for everyone.
