PepsiCo, the global food & beverage company, has been awarded the Mowaamah ‘Gold’ certification, an accreditation by the Saudi’s Human Resources and Social Development Ministry for creating a positive and empowering work culture for individuals with special needs. PepsiCo has a proven track record of providing equal job opportunities for all segments of society and adopting initiatives that build an integrated and inclusive workforce. Over the years, the Company has invested in several training and recruitment programs within the Kingdom to create opportunities for Saudi and other nationals with special needs.

Bandar Al-Badr, Senior Director of Human Resources at PepsiCo, said, “At PepsiCo, we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive environment that reflects our values as a business. This certificate embodies our belief that empowering those with special needs creates sustainable change in the workplace. Representation is important because it empowers people – it instills trust and encourages people to do their best for themselves and for the business. As a company, it ultimately allows us to perform better because it builds a motivated workforce that is invested in people’s strengths.”

The Mowaamah accreditation, launched by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development benchmarks best practices and is designed for organizations who wish to enhance their work environment to equally encourage and be supportive of persons with disabilities. It is in line with the Kingdom’s vision to safeguard the rights of people with special needs and make them financially independent.
