About Telework Program
"Telework program" is a national initiative supported by the Saudi Ministry of Labor and Social Development (MLSD) seeking to create a local and flexible work environment that keeps pace with the developments in the global labor market.
Technology revolution played a role in fostering new cultures in the local labor market, as it is possible today to find flexible job opportunities that overcome physical obstacles and connect employers with employees through a virtual workplace.
Moreover, the program is keen on providing the needs of two different yet essential segments in the workforce, who are women and people with disabilities. These needs will be fulfilled by providing flexible job opportunities that overcome transportation obstacles and other obstacles faced by females such as inconveniences in the workplace and the need to take care of children during work hours.
