According to Saudi Vision 2030 to reduce unemployment rates among the Saudi youth, Burj Rafal Hotel Kempinski has employed 25 Saudis in the hospitality, food, beverage, and housekeeping departments.

Juan Uribe, general manager of Burj Rafal Hotel Kempinski, explained that the general policy of the hotel is based on the investment of human skills and employing skills in the right places, which directly contributes to the development of all departments and makes them able to meet guests' requirements.

Nawaf Al-Subaie, human resources manager, said: "During the last period, we had great challenge with ourselves. The aim was to employ as many Saudis as possible within a short period. The process was selective and included several stages, starting from the announcement of the vacancies, then receiving biographies, giving priority to the Saudi citizens, and giving them the opportunity to train in one of the most important training institutes to acquire the required skills, and then recruiting them."
