Al Riyadh – Aljomaih Group participated as a Golden Sponsor in the second National Employment Forum for individuals with special needs, which aims to provide employment opportunities tailored to the ambitions and abilities of disabled individuals. The Disabled Children’s Association launched this forum on the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities at Al Faisaliah Hotel Al Riyadh, from Sunday until Tuesday (13 - 15 December 2015). The event was held under the auspicious patronage of His Royal Highness Prince SULTAN bin SALMAN bin ABDULAZIZ, Chairman of the Disabled Children's Association, and attended by several Princes and senior officials.
The Job Fair brought people with special needs together with private sector institutions under one roof. It addressed the obstacles and problems that face those individuals at work, provided opportunities to train and qualify them and looked for employment channels suited to their capabilities. In addition, the Forum expended a great deal of effort to act upon decisions supporting employing individuals with special needs. Moreover, discussions took place about new means to enhance their chances in the workplace, besides emphasizing successful experiences in that respect.
In that occasion, Sheikh Walid Aljomaih, Chief Operating Officer at Aljomaih Automotive, said, “Aljomaih Group’s history is rife with programs and campaigns supporting noble causes in society. That’s why we believe it is our duty to help citizens actualize their potential irrespective of their physical abilities, because everyone has a special talent and dormant potential somewhere, which can be put to good use if we adapt properly to the obstacles facing us.”
Aljomaih Group Holding – includes Aljomaih Holding Co., Aljomaih Automotive Co., Al Tayseer Arabian Co., Aljomaih Pepsi Co. and Aljomaih Energy & Water Co. – was present in the Forum at a special stand spanning 30 meters. The Job Fair attracted visitors (males, females and families) from different cities across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Al-Riyadh, Jeddah, Al-Dammam, etc.), in addition to other cities and provinces across the Kingdom.
