Why Embrace Saudization
Saudization policy actively promotes enterprises, regardless of whether they are public or private, to give preference to the recruitment of Saudi nationals. The penalties for not adhering to Saudization quotas or employing non-Saudis range from SAR 2,000 to 8,000.
You can calculate Nitaqat using the formula below:
Saudization percentage = (number of Saudi employees / total workforce) x 100
The Saudi government has defined specific Saudization percentage ranges for each color zone as follows:
- Red Zone: Companies with a Saudization percentage ranging from 0% to 16.21% fall within this zone.
- High Green Zone: Companies with a Saudization percentage ranging from 23.12% up to 26.51% are placed in this zone
- Platinum Zone: Companies with a Saudization percentage ranging from 26.52% up to 100% are considered to be in the platinum zone
