Noon vaccinates 100 percent of its fulfillment team in KSA
The Saudi digital marketplace vaccinates over 2,000 of its employees –
one month ahead of local government requirements
noon.com, the region’s homegrown digital marketplace, has achieved 100 percent vaccination status throughout its fulfillment team in KSA, driving trusted customer excellence with safer deliveries across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Over 2,000 of noon’s employees within the fulfillment team have now been vaccinated across the Kingdom, meeting the Saudi government’s requirement for vaccinations within the workplace one month ahead of time. The requirement, issued by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development (MHRSD), calls for all public and private sector workers to be vaccinated by 1st August, 2021, bringing the Kingdom one step closer to its Vision 2030 goal.
Noon’s dedicated frontline operators across KSA maintain a ‘green tick’ health status that can be easily verified via the Tawakkalna app. The app, approved by the Saudi Ministry of Health to prevent the spread of coronavirus, allows people to prove their health status when entering private sector establishments and public areas. It also offers assurance to noon customers of the health status of each frontline fulfillment worker.
Ahmed Gadouri, General Manager, noon, said of the vaccination drive: “Maintaining safety at the highest level, both within the team and for our sellers and customers, is a top priority at noon. Our logistics and fulfillment team are our frontline – operations heroes working day and night to safely deliver packages to our customers, playing an integral role in solidifying our services across the Kingdom. Noon was born to serve and support the people of this region, all whilst driving innovation, accelerating the local digital economy, and providing a safe and reliable shopping experience to our customers.”
The Saudi e-tailer recently announced expansion of its customer service operations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, creating hundreds of jobs for local Saudi youth. The expansion will help improve noon’s customer experience and support the rapid growth of noon’s customer base in the Kingdom. Noon will hire, train, and empower young Saudis as part of the initiative to help boost employment, develop skill sets and drive the local economy further.
