Bayt.com, the Middle East’s number one job site, has announced the launch of its HIRE Program, the world’s first initiative encourage hiring by rewarding employers for every new hire they make. The compensation scheme is in line with Bayt.com’s mission of empowering people, fueled by the jobsite’s desire to empower employers who are committed to hiring in the region. The HIRE Program encourages more companies to play a part in tackling unemployment across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
The loyalty programme is the first of its kind, gifting active employers free job postingsthat can then be used to hire even more people. In addition to that, they will be recognised for their contribution to solving unemployment in the region, with a special badge on the company’s profile on Bayt.com.
“This program is our thank you to employers who create employment opportunities, a thank you to them for hiring people and for making the region and the world a better place. The HIRE Program was created to give employers the credit that they deserve. They are the most important people in the region today; they create jobs and guarantee livelihoods, and we felt it was time to recognise their efforts through this unique program,” said Suhail Masri, Vice President of Sales, Bayt.com. “Bayt.com is dedicated to empowering people with the tools and knowledge that they need to build the lifestyles of their choice. Through the HIRE Program, we are facilitating this more than ever, by driving employment opportunities amongst MENA communities.”
Bayt.com is proud to be on the forefront of technology in the recruitment sphere, offering employers and employees alike some of the most advanced online tools available. The site measures its success by the extent to which it can help individuals to lead better lives, by empowering them with the ability to lead the life of their choosing through matching them with the jobs that matter most to them.
To date 11 million professionals and over 40,000 employers have registered on the Middle East’s #1 jobsite spanning the entire regional demographic and industry spectrum. On an average day over 11,000 jobs are advertised on leading jobsite at all career levels from entry level to senior executive. At the same time, for employers who prefer not to advertise roles, hundreds if not thousands of other vacancies are filled through the Jobsite’s state-of-the-art Search functionality which allows employers to search, screen and contact directly relevant professionals across recruitment requirements. The jobsite which prides itself on its highly sophisticated search tools and constant innovations has also recently had much success with its Public Profiles platform which allows professionals to create and maintain a unique personal brand and professional presence on the web. Over a million public profiles have been created since the platform’s recent launch.
“HIRE is a natural extension of the great successes we’ve had over the past 13 years in matching between talents and companies,” said Masri. “Now, our goal is to up the ante by increasing hiring activity in the region itself. We know it’s a challenging goal, but when combined with our JobsLite product which offers SMEs in the Middle East 100% free job postings, we’re very, very excited about the potential. ”
