Enterprise software firm cites kingdom’s rapid growth as catalyst for solution
Enterprise software giant SAP today launched a solution designed to help Saudi Arabia cope with the HR challenges posed by the kingdom's rapid growth.
SAP HR Core Functions for Saudi Arabia is localised and compatible with the country's labour laws and common practices, according to SAP, which said it expected the deployment to "help decision-makers deliver immediate operational enhancements".
"Effectively managing the workforce has never been more important in Saudi Arabia," said Ahmed Al-Faifi, managing director, SAP Saudi Arabia.
"Efficiency needs to be carefully balanced with accuracy, and HR leaders need access to tools that facilitate rather than confuse and obstruct. SAP has undertaken considerable field studies, partner collaboration and research to produce this first-of-a-kind solution in the kingdom.
"Saudi Arabia's employment landscape is rapidly changing both in scale and complexity. Fully aligned with local laws and employment best practice, SAP HR Core Functions for Saudi Arabia will enable new levels of transparency, agility and simplicity across all key HR management processes."
