Hays Partners with Women Choice to Create One Million Jobs for Women in the MENA Region

Tuesday 05 September 2023, Dubai: Hays Middle East and Women Choice, an international organization dedicated to advancing women’s personal and professional development, have partnered to help boost the employment of women in the Middle East and North Africa.

Hays joins a long list of highly committed partners that are helping create one million jobs for women across MENA in alignment with the United Nation’s Social Development Goals (SDG 2030).

Women Choice established their Social Innovation Incubator (SII) program to provide comprehensive support for women entrepreneurs and create employment opportunities in their chosen fields over the next five years. SII also provides mentorship and training on topics such as business planning, capacity building, human resources, and recruitment expertise.

Hays, an industry leader in recruitment and workforce solutions, will contribute to this Impact Program by providing a continuous series of expert training sessions to the cohort of women enrolled with Women Choice.

“At Hays, we believe that for organisations to thrive, they must go beyond working only for profit. We are proud to partner with Women Choice to leverage our expertise and help enhance the employability of those who may not have the same opportunities as others, helping to create a better tomorrow for our community,” said Coral Atkins, People and Culture Manager at Hays Middle East.

“We are excited to add a group like Hays to the HER- Impact Program and to have access to their resources. They are committed to be part of the change and help increase the number of opportunities for women,” said Nezha Alaoui, Founder & CEO of Women Choice.

Through its collaboration with Hays, and other partners, the Women Choice initiative will help provide real employment opportunities for women by empowering female social entrepreneurs across the Arab world.
