What are some of the issues to be tackled in this important topic? They may include:

  • Aligning employers with employees
  • Private learning centers, belonging to employers, and their effectiveness in preparing professional and effective cadres for the Saudi private sector
  • Academies, such as Ministry of Labor Academy, to prepare public servants in becoming more efficient at carrying out their duties
  • Mentoring programs in the work place — private or public sector
  • The role of women in the work place — how it has grown and changed
  • Creating job opportunities for persons with disability
  • Starting to prepare knowledge workers in schools
  • How to develop SMEs in the creation of jobs and reducing unemployment
  • The role of entrepreneurs and funding them through incubator and accelerator funds
  • Internship programs during and after graduation for students abroad on scholarships — utilizing for example, Saudi-American Joint Ventures, where students can train for a year or two after graduation with the US partners and guaranteeing them jobs with the Saudi partner
  • The role of the media — positive and negative — in creating awareness and not adding to the chasm between employers and job seekers
  • Creating positive awareness and job matching through fairs, conferences, and forums
  • Partnering with International Speciality houses in creating jobs for Saudis in terms of best practice
