The Farm, a subsidiary of Al-Faisaliah Group (AFG), signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Human Resource Fund (HRC) to the purpose, the group announced recently.

The MOU was signed by Prince Muhammad Al-Faisal, president of AFG, and Ahmed Al-Zamil, general manager of HRC.

"Employing Saudis is an investment which not only benefits the company, but also contributes to the economy of the country as a whole, following the strategic support shown by the Saudi government," Prince Muhammad said.

" This is the fourth signing by the group during 2007 to employ 425 Saudis to work in several of the group‚s companies such as Safi Danoon, Sony, Al-Safi Dairy Farm, and the Medical Company," he said after the signing.

He appreciated the efforts of HRC to support Saudisation, and added that the percentage of Saudis in the group was at a "very good" level, but did not specify the number.

"We hope the Saudisation percentage rises with the signings of these agreements to higher levels," he said, and added that the group was keen on employing qualified Saudis in all levels of the group's companies and contribute in future leadership roles.

He said that Al-Faisaliah Group aims to continue employing Saudis.

"The objective is to provide job security to Saudis," he said. Prince Muhammad said the group had a successful experience in the field of training and rehabilitation in the course of its presence in the Saudi market.
