Abstract (EN)The article reports that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's (KSA) economy-sustaining workforce is comprised of foreign nationals that are hired for temporary job positions. This trend is called impatriation, and the practice is the core of international human resources management (HRM). Most economic markets in the Middle East came to rely on impatriates for work produced by the oil, healthcare, finance, and trading booms. Most high-skilled workers are from Europe and North America, bringing diversity to the country. The author evaluates general macro and micro environment needs for an impatriate, and the same requirements for their working conditions. He proposes that human resources training be expanded in the Middle East. A case study of personnel management at Al-Watania Poultry is presented.
