Alshaya Group Employees celebrate Saudi Arabia National Day

Alshaya Group was very proud to have the opportunity to celebrate Saudi Arabia's National Day with its employees across the country. Last week, each of Alshaya's regional offices in Dammam, Jeddah and Riyadh, developed an entertainment programme for the day, so that employees could enjoy celebrating National Day in style.

In each office, teams enjoyed traditional Arabic hospitality, catering and gifts all reflecting KSA's 91st National Day theme. In Alshaya's Jeddah and Riyadh offices, a traditional Saudi folklore dance show entertained employees throughout the day.

Faisal Alshaya, General Manager, KSA said: "Joining the celebrations for Saudi National Day is a tradition for Alshaya Group that we are proud to take part in. The retail sector is a major contributor to the Saudi economy, and Alshaya Group, which is one of region's leading retailers, employs over 11,500 people across nearly 1,000 stores, distribution centres and offices in the Kingdom. As a company we have a long-term commitment to investing in Saudi Arabia and we are continuing to expand our business across the kingdom, bringing customers an exciting choice of retail brands, coffee shops, restaurants, and leisure experiences."

"We have successfully contributed to Saudi nationalisation over many years and we are especially committed to investing in and growing the skills and knowledge of our Saudi management and employee base, ensuring there is a broad range of career and training opportunities for talented Saudis who want to develop their careers in the retail industry. We know that the investments we make now will benefit the company and its development in the future."

"Alshaya Group has proud retail history in Saudi Arabia going back nearly 40 years, which has given us a firm foundation to continue the growth and development of our Saudi employees. The occasion of National Day is a time to celebrate and look forward to continuing this strong business record and supporting Saudi Arabia and its achievement of Vision 2030."
