Our team working across MENA has an exceptional understanding of the challenges and potential within the region, making placements in countries including Saudi Arabia, Oman, Jordan, Yemen and Syria. Despite being constantly affected by economic transformation and persistent civil war, this diverse part of the world offers huge growth potential as it paves the way for the future of work.
The two most important human capital trends identified in the region, belonging and well-being, illustrate that MENA is a forward thinker when it comes to employee engagement. With ever-increasing levels of polarisation in the world, and a rise in remote working, employees are looking inwards to build connections with their colleagues and companies. Belonging and performance have been intrinsically linked as employees contribute to shared goals and common visions within their organisations, and employers become increasingly aware of the impact of technology on societies and populations.
of placed candidates in 2020 were women.
Oxford HR is proud of our strong track record throughout the MENA region. We have experience working with a wide range of organisations to appoint and support remarkable senior leaders to propel our client organisations forward, and help them achieve their world changing goals.
