Landmark Arabia, the pioneering omnichannel retailer and hospitality lead in Saudi Arabia, was recognized for their people's efforts by the Riyadh Chamber of Commerce as a consequence of implementing initiatives that align with Saudi Vision 2030 and places Saudization at the forefront of its hiring strategies.

Landmark Arabia has been certified by Great Place to Work since 2017, reflecting the organisation's dedication to building a workplace culture that prioritizes empowerment, respect, and trust.

With a strong presence in Saudi Arabia, the retailer’s success is attributed to its highly skilled and dedicated workforce. Competence, passion, and a conducive people culture are what fuel the organisation’s competitive edge in today's market. Landmark Arabia has implemented several initiatives and programmes throughout the past couple of years to keep engaging and motivating it’s employees.

Talent development and employee growth are foundational to Landmark Arabia's strategy. Over the past year, Landmark Arabia has held 11 training programs for its employees, each receiving the industry-acclaimed Brandon Hall Excellence Award for successful deployment of these programmed with tools that achieve measurable results. Of these 10 programmes were delivered in the KSA to train nearly 14,000 of their Saudi national team members. With a clear focus on attracting and retaining local talent, Landmark Group, the parent company has grown its GCC workforce to a 27,000-strong retail community.

“Ever since its inception in 1973, integrity, innovation and entrepreneurship have been at the heart of our organisation’s core values. They go hand in hand and are embedded in our DNA at every level, business and function -- allowing us to reinvent, upskill and redefine ourselves to further enhance our capabilities," commented Yasser Alqahtani, Head of HR, Landmark Arabia.

"As we evolved with our teams, we identified the need to connect more. This led to the launch the Landmark Happiness Movement, in 2017. We believe that such initiatives not only empower employees but also lets them know that we care about their professional growth and journeys with Landmark Arabia.”

“We are very proud of our team’s developmental milestones and are grateful to the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development and the Chamber of Commerce for their constant support towards furthering our contribution to the Saudi Vision 2030" Alqahtani added.

The organisation also launched two intensive career initiatives to upskill and empower its Saudi employees and enable them to take on future leadership roles - The 'First Time Manager in the KSA' and Area Manager Development programme. The programmes are bilingual and have been carefully curated to introduce the concepts of effective leadership through guidance on mastering practical leadership styles, building effective connections, as well as having productive performance or career discussions.

Both these programmes are aimed at strengthening employees' managerial capabilities and are aligned with the Human Capability Development Program and the overarching Vision 2030, which aims to equip and empower Saudi citizens with the required capabilities to compete in global and local market.
