Zain, the leading telecommunications company in Kuwait, organized an informative seminar about the latest developments in the Residency Law for non-Kuwaiti employees in collaboration with the Ministry of Interior. MOI officials were recently present at the company’s main headquarters in Shuwaikh, where they took part in this first of its kind initiative in the Kuwaiti private sector.
Zain organized this seminar as part of its Human Resources Strategy, which works to provide employees with initiatives and programs that cater to their various needs with the aim to benefit them and keep them informed with latest governmental processes. Zain positions itself as the first private-sector company to take up this initiative, and the latest collaboration with MOI comes to strengthen the company’s commitment towards its employees.
The seminar witnessed the presence of the Director of Residency Affairs in Mubarak Al Kabeer Governorate Colonel Abdullah Saud Sunaidah, who explained the latest developments of the Residency Law where residency visas given to expatriates will be linked to their passports’ validity starting from January 2016. The seminar also witnessed the attendance of a large number of Zain employees who showed their interest and interacted with MOI officials.
It is worth noting that Zain shows continuous commitment to enrich its partnership with various public entities with the aim of facilitating governmental processes to its employees. Recently in April, the company applied the E-signature service to its employees in collaboration with the Public Authority for Civil Information. PACI officials were present at the company’s main headquarters for a period of two weeks, where they eased the registration process of Zain employees.
Zain considers itself as a core entity within the community, and strives to keep up with the social and economic development trends. The company will always put the needs of its employees at the forefront of its priorities.
