stc is one of the best workplaces for career growth in Saudi Arabia
stc is one of the best workplaces to grow your career in Saudi Arabia, according to a new ranking carried out by online business network LinkedIn.
In its 2021 list issued last week LinkedIn ranked stc third in the top 10 Saudi companies who invest in their employees. The listing recognizes companies who support their employees in building professional foundations, are focused on attracting and investing in talent, and who create supportive environments to foster creativity, innovation and development.
The ranking methodology used by LinkedIn is based on seven pillars, each one representing a key aspect of career progression including: ability to advance; skills growth; company stability; external opportunity; company affinity; gender diversity and educational background.
The pillars are aligned with stc’s Human Resource (HR) priorities, which have been developed to invest in talent and leadership development programs and were important in helping the company secure its high ranking with LinkedIn.
stc’s HR Department is focused on the company’s most valuable resource, its people. It has developed a range of programs to invest in talents and prepare future leaders, including the development of digital leadership skills. The programs are part of stc’s commitment to continuous professional development and ensure that talented new recruits, both men and women, are prepared for leadership positions.
Diversity is also a key priority for stc which it recognizes as important in promoting productivity, creativity and competition. stc is proud to offer equal opportunities to men, women, people with disabilities and across all age ranges. This stems from stc’s belief in its role as a digital enabler in the Kingdoms’ digital transformation journey which contributes to the realization of the objectives of Vision 2030.
stc's HR Strategy and Employee Experience has developed a CARE 2.0 Strategy for the period 2020-2023. It is aimed at achieving recognition as an ‘Excellence Model’ for human resources in the MENA region, through offering a flexible and innovative digital experience by 2023 that helps realize the objectives of Vision 2030.
