remote working in Saudi Arabia has increased by 1128%, stc declared in a press release referring to 3500 daily virtual meetings held by stc employees. It reflects the success of stc's digital transformation plan in accordance with the company's DARE strategy which was launched in 2018. One of the major objectives of the strategy was the digitization of business and the promotion of remote work for employees.
