Now accommodating the growth of the Saudi team is a new and larger office in Riyadh, inaugurated last week.

“With a growing family of hundreds of clients and thousands of associates only in Saudi Arabia, TASC’s new office is a testament to the growing demands in the Saudi Arabian market,” said Mahesh Shahdadpuri, Founder and CEO at TASC.

“Expanding our office reinforces our commitment to providing excellent people solutions in an ever-progressing nation. In line with Saudi Arabia's Vision 2030, our growth is strategic, keeping pace with the country's forward-thinking goals. We aim to be leaders in people solutions, ready for today and shaping tomorrow for businesses and employees in Saudi Arabia.”

The larger office will also help TASC expand its offerings in Saudi Arabia. Currently, the office in Riyadh mainly focuses on helping local blue chip and international businesses to successfully establish their talent base in Saudi Arabia.

Going forward, the firm is expanding its services in talent hiring and outsourcing, mobility, and immigration to meet the unique needs of the country. “International relocations can be challenging in the kingdom however, the digitization of government mandates for businesses has truly been instrumental in streamlining the processes,” said Anil Singh, Country Leader for KSA at TASC.

Abdullah Alharbi, a talent specialist at TASC, added: “Human resource regulations are continuously evolving as part of the Kingdom’s transformation. This evolution is not limited to the regulations for nationalizing professions, which are among the most important initiatives of the government, but also encompasses everything related to the rights of employees and employers. Therefore, it is crucial for companies to deeply understand and stay continually informed about the latest developments in this area.”

Other areas of focus include helping organizations comply with Nitaqat regulation (or advancing their Nitaqat status), and achieving Saudization goals, a key policy of the Saudi government that obliges employers to hire local talent alongside their international bench of talent.
