The initiatives, which are part of large programs financed by the Bank for government, charitable or specialized entities, fall under the following categories:
Support for those in need, housing (specialized associations or home renovation for the poor), “Green Tomorrow” which cares entirely about the environment, the youth, international health days or special days for groups with special needs, and the elderly.
Al Rajhi Bank aims to drive the spirit of volunteerism among its employees and their families as one of its initiatives to contribute to the realization of the Saudi vision, which has placed great importance on volunteering and development of the third sector.
The culture of volunteerism contributes to bringing awareness to employees on the issues facing society and special needs groups, the environment, community service, along with health and financial issues.
Al Rajhi Bank continues its mission to become “Employer of choice" as part of its HR strategy - an important aspect of its overall strategy.
