Navigating the Workforce: Charting Female Employment Landscapes in Saudi Arabia and Iceland

by | Nov 19, 2023 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Employment in Iceland and Saudi Arabia can be understood through various factors, including the labour market, workforce participation, employment sectors, and government policies.

An increase in 2020 and 2021 in Saudi. This may be due to several factors. Historically, the majority of the labour force in Saudi Arabia has been made up of expatriate workers. The government has introduced policies to reduce this dependency and create job opportunities for Saudi citizens.

An increase in female employment rate from 2018 till 2021 in Saudi while Iceland maintains a steady rate .This may be due to recent reforms such as:

  • allowing women to drive
  • expanding their employment opportunities,
  • The government target to increase women’s participation in the workforce,
  • various sectors are gradually opening up to women.

While Iceland is known for promoting gender equality in the labour force, this steady rate is a result of various policies and initiatives aimed at promoting gender equality in the workplace.

Saudi Arabia’s Effort towards gender equality are well noticed over the last few years, and Iceland is a known for its gender equality in the labour force. but will it be reflected in these countries when navigating wages by gender???
