In many nations, including the UAE, GCC, and KSA, nationalization is a major policy objective. The percentage of a company's workforce that must be citizens or permanent residents of the country to comply with local laws and regulations is referred to as the nationalization ratio. In the UAE and KSA, for instance, there are different nationalization standards that apply to various areas of the economy. These quotas are intended to provide citizens and permanent residents with job opportunities and to encourage employers to hire and train local talent.
Companies in the UAE, GCC, and KSA frequently use the nationalization ratio as a performance metric. Companies can demonstrate their commitment to the local workforce and community by meeting or exceeding nationalization targets, which can also be a factor in winning contracts or bids. HR experts assume a basic part in guaranteeing that organizations conform to nationalization guidelines, and in creating procedures to draw in and hold nearby ability.
